April 4th – 8th

Welcome back everyone, hope you had a wonderful Easter!! It’s hard to believe it’s April already….and at The Children’s House we can’t wait to get back to school and start the new term! It’s going to be a busy week, between catching up with all our friends and hearing all the news, and the morning classes will be continuing their project about the timeline of the Earth, and this week will be learning all about the Paleozoic Era (from 542 – 251 million years ago!) During this time, life in the ocean developed and became more complex – the first vertebrates and fish with jaws occurred, and plants and insects appeared on land. Amphibians appeared, large trees and ferns developed on land, and winged insects and the first reptiles were abundant. Relating to this, the children will be making their own pictures of the era, and we will be doing some drama pretending to be amphibians emerging from the oceans onto the land. The afternoon classes will be learning about frogs this week (speaking of amphibians!), and all classes will be doing yoga!

5 Little Speckled Frogs

5 little speckled frogs, sat on a speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs – yum yum!
1 jumped into the pool, where it was nice and cool,
Then there were 4 green speckled frogs – glug glug!

4 little speckled frogs…
3 little speckled frogs…
