LOOK…what’s been happening in your child’s class this Month…
                          Montessori Room
What a busy month in the Montessori Room! We learnt all about the seven continents talking about where they are on the globe and learning interesting little facts about these places. We have being keeping up with our sounds learning m, g & o and learning all the words that begin with these sounds. We have also been learning the written numerals 8, 9 & 10 and the quantities that go with these numbers. We had fun learning about Chinese New Year-The Year of the Rabbit and we enjoyed making funny rabbit masks. The highlight of the Month though had to be Valentines Day. On the lead up to it we were busy making cards, decorating the classroom and making yummy chocolate chip heart shaped cookies! On the day all the children made a real effort and really did dress to impress. We then all got to dance to some romantic love music. After this we had a fun party with chocolate hearts and jelly hearts. The children really enjoyed it! Next month will be an exciting month also with our Monthly theme ‘All about Me’ and St. Patricks Day and Pyjama Day! We will be having a green day on 16th so don’t forget all your green clothes and of course your pyjamas on 25th!!

                         Afterschool Room
The children in the afterschool room have been taking part in lots of role play this month playing hairdresser, school and restaurant. They also enjoyed making Valentines Day cards and our Valentines Day party.  Also don’t forget your green clothes on 16th and your pyjamas on 25th!
                                   Stretch & Grow
The Montessori children are really enjoying the Stretch ‘N’ Grow Class and look forward to it every week. They received a little booklet in which they colour a picture relating to the class when it finishes. They will bring home this booklet after the 10 week session is complete.
