What an absolutely amazing second last week of school. As things are nearing the end it is a blessing to see how much the Crew have grown since the beginning of the year. There have been so many special memories made this week.

On Monday the Crew made their very own ice lollies, created with yoghurt and fruit bits. They had so much fun making the mixture and pouring it into moulds. We also spent the day working through our shapes (focusing on 3D specifically as next year they will cover this more in detail). On Tuesday we decided to make Principal Anita a lovely birthday card for her birthday. It was so special to see how much they love her and all the wonderful memories they have of her. Later on in the day we enjoyed our frozen ice lollies in the garden – they were delicious!

Cooking week is always fun for the children to be involved in making something and feeling like ‘big kids’! On Thursday we created our very own snack! Nutella and fruit on bread! They were so excited and made wonderful masterpieces! We definitely have some Picassos in the class! We tackled numbers, their formation is very important going to Grade R. The Crew have progressed well with recognising their numerals and we are so proud of them! The weather on Thursday was perfect for movies and popcorn! Yay!

For homework this week, if you could practice letter sounds – ask your child to sing the alphabet song and then go through the letters asking them to sound out the letters. They will surprise you!

Have a lovely weekend and see you all on Monday!

We went on an outing!

Wednesday was our Curious Crew outing day. It was truly a beautiful day, the weather was great and the children had a blast! They were all so well-behaved and listened so well. There were many swings and even a big (fabric sac) swing! The Crew had such a jol! We are so blessed with the children that we had this year! We are going to miss them so much!

Hh – Holiday

We had so much fun learning about the different places we can travel to last week. The Crew have such lovely memories and can tell their teachers about their holidays. Thank you for being so enthusiastic guys!

We completed three worksheets this week, two were letter based and the third was number orientated. The Crew had to follow simple and complex instructions (this is an assessment criteria), they all did really well! This week we read three Letter Land books for story time. Namely; the letter of the week ‘h’, the letter ‘i’ and the letter ‘g’. We are introducing the concept of before and after so for example, ‘which letter comes before ‘h’ in the alphabet.’ This also falls under assessment criteria. The Crew have participated so well this week with new terms and concepts. Congratulations boys and girls!

The worksheets included different types of activities, they had to colour, trace, find, circle and match letters. They have all come such a long way! The number worksheet was a counting and matching one the Crew had to colour the picture, count how many items and then associate it with the correct number. Great work!

For art this week, we made our very own passports! They found it so interesting! We explained that we get boarding passes and we need passports to travel. They also watched a few short clips of people going on planes and how the process works being in an airport.

One of the things we have introduced these past few weeks is Sight Words. at the end of each Letter Land book, there is a sight word such as ‘cat’ or ‘mat’ etc. They have turned this into a little game where they sound out each letter to form the word. Wow, they surprised us with how quickly they get the word right! Have some fun with them and let them try some sight words at home.

Our year-end fun day at Eco Tree Parks is coming up, please could you return the indemnity forms! The Crew are getting so excited and we are going to have an absolutely amazing time.

Have a fabulous week ahead!
