For art this week they painted their squirrels and glued crepe paper onto their tails. 🐿️ We're also getting into the Christmas spirit and made lovely decorations for our tree. 🎄🎁

Pre-Montessori have been learning about the farm. We talked about all the animals we might see on the farm and all the work the farmer has to do. We also had fun making our own farm.

This month in the toddler room we are learning about body parts. We began this learning by painting and printing our hands and feet. We coloured an ear and some eyes the colour of are own. We also made some mouths. Today we drew around the outline of one of our friends to create a body. The children had great fun sticking arms and legs cut from magazines to the different parts on the drawing of the body they represent. They also stuck the hands, the feet, eyes, ears and a mouth we made previously to the drawing. We then talked about the different body parts, what we use them for and matched our own body parts to the drawing.

This week the children in Montessori ECCE year 2 were learning all about Antarctica. We made snow for the boys and girls to play with using shaving foam and cornflour. We made little snowballs with the snow too☃️❄️🐧. For art this week we made penguins using paper plates. We also had two birthday parties this week too!🎂🎈

In wobbler 2 our monthly theme for November is winter. Today we were very busy making our snowflakes. We painted with the stencil and put some glitter on.

The children enjoyed exploring the different items, especially the spiders and opening the plastic eggs to discover the googly eyes. They also loved the Pumpkin lifting it, feeling it and rolling it around on the ground. We talked about the different colours and items we could see and how they felt.
