Daily Program

Every day we will do different activities with an emphasis on fun. The children learn many skills in many different areas and in order to cover all these areas we set out the following activities on certain days of the week.

Monday - Music

The children will engage in various musical activities including dancing and playing with instruments.

Tuesday - Movement Day

The children will engage in gross motor activities such as obstacle courses, skipping, ball skills etc. this improves mobility, hand-eye coordination and movement skills.

Wednesday - Puzzle Building

Jigsaw puzzles are one of the finest teaching aids available. It teaches eye-hand coordination, problem solving skills, shape recognition and focusing skills. Each child is expected to complete 1 puzzle according to their age and will receive a sticker as a reward. Please do puzzles with your children at home it is such a valuable skill for your child to learn.

Thursday - Show and Tell

Each child may bring one item to school to show the class and tell them about it. Show and Tell improves confidence and gives the children an opportunity to grow and mature. A theme related item is encouraged but any item is fine.

Friday - Baking or Tuck-Shop

Tuck shop will be held on the first Friday of every month. The children will each bring money and buy some treats that are available from the tuck shop. Please no more than R10.

Baking will be every Friday except when we have Tuck Shop Day. The children will bake at school and take their baking home to show Mommy and Daddy.

Practical learning

Once a term I will arrange a special outing or show for the children. I will send a newsletter out with all details.
