This week our Pre-schoolers and Grade R’s had a story time during their Computer Lesson. They had a wonderful time going through ‘Sally’s Seaside Adventure’. The children learnt mouse skills as well as hand-eye co-ordination. They also learnt about different sea creatures and were taught a new word: souvenir. They helped Sally built a sandcastle and made their own ice-creams. We have to admit that the ice-creams we saw were delicious! With the Mid-term break coming around the corner maybe everyone needs a little Vitamin Sea too!
Africa offers a unique mix of culture, wildlife and beautiful landscape and we were inspired by this topic for our Grade 3 to 5. We asked them to be creative, use their typing skills and to work in Microsoft Office Word to accomplish this. The children learnt how to change font styles, font colours and size. We were all very impressed with the incredible poems we saw and would love to share one with everyone.
My African Poem
Africa, the mother nation
Where we live,
Where we were born,
Where we were raised,
Where our animals are.
South Africa, Cape Town, Limpopo,
are in our mother nation Africa.
I love my mother nation Africa .
Hello and welcome back to a brand new year of infinite possibilities.
We are loving teaching your little ones. Their excitement as they explore new and exciting things is wonderful to see.
This week our focus has been on 'body image' and we have used iPads and your children's creativity to design and make puzzles of themselves.
This blog is written by the staff of Little Brains to keep you up to date with what is going on in our lessons. Here we will share ideas, children's work and special moments.
