Circle & Sphere





Ff – Farm

Moral Conscious Theme: Do Not Waste Food – We explained to the Squad that they must only dish up a small portion of food and if they would like more then they can get more, this will limit food wastage. We also explained to them that a lot of energy goes into producing food, packaging it, and getting it to the store as well as the person who cooks the food for you whether it be chef Thembi or your family at home.

Writing and Phonics: This week Squad worked hard on remembering their sight words and received two new sight words for this week “come”, and “see”. The squad then did two worksheets on the “ab” family, they drew their sound buttons and then matched the words to the pictures. They then wrote put the “ab” family words followed by sentences using their “ab” family words. The Squad is really starting to master their handwriting, Great work!  

Mathematics: The Squad completed a fun worksheet on “before and after”. They had to complete which numbers come before and after up to 20 and then did trace by number, they were chuffed with the result of the picture being a clown – they then coloured the clown in.  

Creative Art: The Squad made their very own farm animals using recycled materials such as pringles tins and pinecones, they came out super cute and we will be keeping these for art expo.

Music and Cooking: On Tuesday for Music, Teacher Katy came and sang concert songs with the Squad, she taught them how to sing in tune.

We are completing assessments over the next two weeks; please could we ask that your child attends school every day.

How did the farmer find his wife? He TRACTOR down!

Cooking: For our cooking class this week the Squad used their creativity and fine motor skills to the max by making their own ships (Transport theme). They started with a base made from half an apple, then added syrup and Rice Krispies to create the ship’s structure. Next, they added a triangular cheese flag on a toothpick and a jelly baby “human” to complete the design. This made a delicious and healthy snack, great work little chefs!
