Superhero and Princess day!
We dressed up as superheroes or princesses to raise money for new playground equipment. We made princess crowns and superhero masks. Thank you to everyone who donated.
The Rainbow Fish
We are learning about Under The Sea. We read the story of the Rainbow Fish and created a dance based on the story. We made masks to wear during our dance.
We have completed a 5 week course called ‘On The Write Track.’ We focused on different areas to help improve our handwriting: Gross Motor Skills (big muscles), shoulder strength and stability, Visual perception, Fine Motor Skills and Visual motor integration skills. All these areas work together to help us become better handwriters. Who knew you did not need a pencil to practise your handwriting!!
The Golden Mile
Every Monday and Wednesday we do a ‘Golden Mile.’ We are learning to build stamina and as the weeks progress we are walking less and jogging/running more. This exercise not only keeps our bodies healthy but helps our brains to be active when we return to class. We love it!
We have been exploring the Seaside.
We learned about Lighthouses and why they are so important. We did chalk drawings of lighthouses as a group activity and told our partners what we thought was good about their picture. We think they look great!
We also made easy ice-cream using an ice-cream machine. We observed how the liquid changed and became more solid when it froze. We used a vanilla flavour in our ice-cream and added different flavours of sauce. It was yummy!
We have been making sets and talking about our sets with our partner. We also made sets with an odd one out to see if our partner could identify the one that doesn’t belong in a set.
