Literacy skills development.
1. Letter of the week H activity.
Children are given rulers to practice drawing shapes to create a house. Enhancing this learning children are then given scissors to cut and make shapes such as squares, rectangles, triangles, diamonds, and circles to make a paper house. This activity focus on shape recognition, letter recognition and literacy skill development.
2. International Children’s Day
Listen and respect children’s voices: Children are asked what they want to be when they grow up? Why do they want to be this? Children draw a picture to match their idea.
3. World Environment Day
World Environment Day 2020- Love the Earth God created

Paper, pencils, imagination and stories.

Numeracy skills development.
1. Recognising and developing an awareness of 2D and 3D shapes. Helping our children identify and acknowledge shapes by there 2D and 3D forms.
Children OBSERVE objects that we have chosen to use as a measuring tool. Children then PREDICT the length of the objects. Next the Children with their Educator/Parent collaborate their ideas to work with one another to measure the objects correctly. Children and Educators/parents then DISCUSS with one another the results of the measurement activity and determine if their predictions were correct.
3. STEM- Learning about height and weight - Exploring the outdoor environment and going on a measurement hunt in the yard. Children predict the length of objects before measuring them.
4. Providing the children with an opportunity to gain knowledge about time. Participate in a craft activity where we create our very own clocks.
1. Children have rulers on the table to measure a selection of objects provided on a tray. Children can measure a pencil, a block, around the edges of a book, etc (Children learn and use language of measurement. Eg: - longest, shortest, tallest, widest).
2. To create a clock you will need Paper plates, Coloured markers and paper Split pins.
