Over the last 10 days or so, we’ve been busy bees over at Friends Corner.
We took up where we left off and got learning with the number one hundred.
After recapping the numbers that come before it, the kids each painted their own 100.
There was a big old mess, but it was well worth it.
Outside we went for a fun game of Hopscotch, and back inside for some Snakes and Ladders.
Our Letter of the Week was ‘Z’ and we got talking Zebras, Zoos, and Zips. We had Song Time in the sun and Reading Time in the shade before heading home.
The next day played host to a brilliant Kids Yoga lesson, where Winston told the children the story of Bramble Bear.
A new theme began mid-week, and our little ones looked at the Alphabet from scratch.
Letters A, B, C, and D were our focus as we thought of words beginning with each, found them among a bunch of other letters, and wrote them on the chalkboard wall.
For extra fun, our Tiddlers wrote the letters in sugar, before moving on to play with moon sand.
We closed our day by getting ready for the World Cup; with a game of football.
The next day brought with it some clouds. And, underneath them, we exercised – well, run around like loons – in the Clubhouse yard.
Once all were feeling revived, we got down to some serious play dough work. Shapes were formed and letters were made.
Tracing and drawing were on call as more letters were made; ‘E’ for Elephant, ‘F’ for Fox, and ‘G’ for Green, with added Glitter, of course..
Free play and good times closed our week.
But there was more.. Saturday came round and we closed our clubhouse and shifted focus towards Voula.
There, a pleasant weekend afternoon hosted our Welcoming Summer BBQ. Sweet beats, yummy grub and good times were enjoyed by old and young alike. Thanks to everyone involved. Happy days!
Memories made and a new week, a new month, and a new season came our way.
Back in our clubhouse, we continued our Alphabet fun by digging into a bucket of pasta and beans looking for hidden letters H, I, J, and K. On finding each letter, our little ones placed them on a paper with the matching letter.
A bit of football and some fun group drawing, and we kicked off our week in style.
We continue our brilliant themes as the week goes on, as we sing, dance, and learn through play. And, we welcome you. Like always.
Until next time..
