Money, money, money!

This month the children will be learning all about money. When we discussed what we knew about money the children knew a lot about needing money to buy things and going into shops. Based on this knowledge we decided to make cash registers to put our money in. The children discussed what numbers and buttons we should put on the registers then painted them fun colours. After this we looked at some real money and then coloured in our own paper money.

With all the snow and rain in the last
few days the children decided it would be
a great idea to come to school in our pjs!
we all came dressed in our favourite pjs
with a pillow and a snuggly toy. We played
pj dance, pillow races and even ate a special
snack of cookies and cupcakes! We all had
a great time enjoying our pj day J

Pizza Chefs!

Extending on the children’s interests of making pizzas this week
we decided as a class to make our own pizza. The children
decided on what kinds of toppings they wanted and we all took
turns to spoon our toppings onto the pizza dough. After a few
minutes in the oven our pizzas were ready. They were delicious!

Happy Chinese New Year!

The children were very excited to learn about Chinese New Year this week. We read books about dragons and why there is lots of use of the colour red and learnt what an important celebration it is. Look at our dragons we made to celebrate Chinese New Year 2012.

Pizza Store!

With the children's interests in pizza shops getting even more momentum this week we decided they needed special chef hats for when they cook their pizzas. The children painted their chef hats then we attached a top to it. The children all agree that their pizzas taste extra yummy when they make them wearing their special hats!

Making pizzas!


The children found some fliers with pizza coupons on it and decided to open their own pizza store! They wrote menus with pictures, made pretend pizzas with lots of delicious toppings and even found some pizza boxes to deliver the pizzas in. While engaged in this experience the children used their prior knowledge to draw on, thought about what kind of pizza they would like and strengthened their fine motor skills and control.

How do we paint fireworks?

The children have been very excited to explore New Years Eve and the kinds of celebrations that they experienced. We have talked a lot about fireworks and the children decided they wanted to paint some. We used the wax crayons to colour different patterns of colours onto plain paper then painted over the top with black paint. The children then used their fingers to scratch on top of the paint and create fireworks. The beautiful colours they had drawn earlier came through the paint. Their pictures look amazing!

This month we are learning all about celebrations. We began our week back at school discussing New Year Celebrations. The children had some great stories to tell that included seeing fireworks, eating yummy dinners with family and friends and even playing special games! The children decided they wanted to write and draw about fireworks. Together we sounded out the word fireworks then labelled our drawing.
Everyone did a wonderful job!
