We have had a great week at ELC! We are so pleased to let you know that the children have really settled into school life, participating in class, and enjoying playing with their new friends.
This week we have started our new topic of 'Wild Animals'. We've taken a trip through the jungle, exploring all the different kinds of wild animals. "ELC Carly" acted climbing around the classroom just like Monkey's. We have also pretended to be Lions and let out our biggest ROAR! The children made their cover page for their artwork portfolio, where the were swinging monkeys from a tree. Eliana shared with our class 'Giraffes Can't Dance' by Giles Anderae. Thank you for sharing this story with us!
This week in "ELC Steph" we focused on our new topic of 'Wild Animals', exploring many different types of jungle animals. Zena shared 'Giraffes Can't Dance' from her house too. Thank you for sharing this story, your classmates really enjoyed reading this story, and then made a giraffe craft after reading the story. We also made some tiger masks, and crawled through our jungle pretending to be tigers, growling and prowling. The children really enjoyed singing and dancing to 'Walking in the Jungle' and 'Let's go to the Zoo'.
We finished the week by joining together for a big Jungle Adventure. We walked through the garden and searched for animals. As this was such a hit, next week, we plan to make binoculars with the children to go on another jungle hunt. Next week, we will continue looking at 'Wild Animals'. If you have any toys or books that your child would like to share, please send them in next week. Have a 'wild' weekend!
