I love under the sea week! There is so much to discuss and lovely activities to get the children fired up about taking care of the ocean…

We had ocean themed play provocations around the class with plenty of books and shells to handle and study…

Sorting and fine motor activity…

Of course plenty of water play and fishing…

Lots of fun art processes and creations!

Fun in the sea and sun!



This week we had a circus at school! Ringmasters, clowns, jugglers, trapeze, tightrope walkers and all the exciting animals you can imagine! Everyday something new and full of surprises!

Some circus props and activities!

Walking the tightrope and jumping the ring of fire!

Plenty of fun art…

And of course a circus full of lions!



On the last day of school I love to give the children something special to take home with them…In the past I would shop around and buy a number of small presents and wrap them up…As the years went by I started making presents for the children and now it’s something I do every year and try to come up with something different!

As usual I try to fit in waaaay too much towards the end of the year resulting in me up sewing and packaging late at night! But despite this I actually love making the gifts and start getting so excited to send them home with something that I’ve made especially for them!

Last year I made each child a felt playmat with a small bag of goodies to go with it. Girls got a fantasy playmat and boys got a dinosaur play mat…(Unfortunately I forgot to take a pic of dinosaur playmat!)

For the girls I made crowns and wands and the boys a felt fox face mask (no pic of that either I’m afraid!)

A little owl craft to do with mom and dad and a little cuddly owl for bedtime! This years present ideas to follow…!
