Happy Valentines Day. We made lovely Valentines Say cards for our Mommy’s and Daddy’s. Our theme this month is Lets get moving so we have been doing lots of exercise balancing on the balance beam, using the scooter board and practicing our throwing skills.

Hope you all enjoyed your midterm. We continue to work hard here in Class 1. This month our theme is fairy tales and we have cover The Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood. The weather has been fine so we spent sometime outside chasing bubbles. We have been learning lots of letters and numbers too and practicing our sounds.

October

Happy Halloween everybody! We have done some lovely Halloween art and being exploring our pumpkin. We can’t wait for our Halloween assembly party on Friday when we get our holidays for midterm.

We have also been enjoying trips to Go Bananas where we play on the slide, in the tunnel and with the balls.

We have been working very hard on our tabletop work, making jigsaws, pegboards, counting and sorting colours.

September

September has been a busy month of settling in. We try to go for a walk everyday where we collect leaves and we have been painting them and making art with them. We also did some sensory play with shaving foam and we made towers from blocks. Our songs of the month has been Head Shoulders Knees and Toes and Old Mac Donald. We have been reading our book My Five Senses while we listen, see, taste and touch lots of different items. We have also returned to Go Bananas which is great fun.
