Leaf Painting!

Last week as we finished off our month of nature study we decided to create a painting using leaves. The children thought of this idea and helped their teachers to find some old leaves on the ground in our playground. We mixed our paint up different colours and then used the leaves to paint on our pages. We noticed that different leaves left different imprints and made different shapes and sizes. We had a great time!

Outdoor Play!

With the cooler weather this week we were able to play in our playground! We did a lot of running, jumping, hopping and skipping and practiced our gross motor skills. We made amazing sandcastles in the sand table, made some funnels for water to drip through in the water table and then played a great skipping game! We took turns skipping over the rope and trying to jump with our knees up high to clear the rope. What a great time we had :)

Baby visit!

What a special day! Our friend Amelie bought her new baby brother, Levi in today for show and tell. Levi was born on Friday night and is only 2 days old! We got to watch him sleep in his special bed and even got to ask his Mommy and Amelie some questions. We asked what kind of food he eats, how long he sleeps for and if he can talk yet. Thank you Amelie and family for sharing your new bundle of joy with us!

Today we baked our berry cake for snack! The children helped to read the ingredients, get all the materials ready and then start the fun! We measured out our ingredients using a measuring cup and mixed them all together with a wooden spoon. Then we took turns counting out blueberries and mixed everything all together. Ms Aneika helped us to spoon the mixture into the cake tin then we put it on the oven. It tasted delicious!

Our friend Sofia S bought some special treats with her to school today to share with her friends. As a group we spoke about sharing toys and how we can ask for a toy nicely. We also spoke about the nice words to say when someone gives you a toy / treat ie. Thank you. Thank you Sofia for sharing with us J


This month in our Summer Camp we are learning all about nature. The children decided they wanted to learn about bumblebees, so we went on a mission to learn everything we could. We even made some 3D Bumblebees to hang in the School. The children chose the colours they wanted to use to make their Bumblebee seem life like. Look at how hard we are working!

Bus Ride!

Today was our first day of Summer Camp! We all enjoyed a delicious lunch of broccoli soup and turkey bagels. Once the children were finished lunch they decided to create a bus for everyone to ride on upstairs to sleep time. We put the chairs in two rows to recreate the bus shape and also added the seatbelts that Sophie told us we needed to ride safely! Our friend Melanie reminded us we needed to buy tickets to ride the bus so Felix, Stella and Amelie sold us the tickets. Our friends Simine, Ella and Serena remembered that once you got the ticket you had to hand it to the bus driver. Simone and Gabriel helped everyone to pull the stop cord on the bus and we all travelled safely to our destination upstairs for sleep time J
