Theme for the month: Farm Friends – All about Butterflies

If you ask a group of preschoolers about their favourite insect or bug, chances are you’ll get quite a few votes for the butterfly. They’re beautiful, gentle bugs and their metamorphosis is simply spectacular. Through this theme your child will learn about the life cycle of a butterfly in an exciting way. Learning about life cycles is not just important to understand the butterfly’s metamorphosis, but it is an important general life science concept. Additionally, it introduces the common notation for life cycles, which may seem obvious to us as adults, but understanding this graphic representation is a major milestone for our little ones.

Your child will also learn about different types of butterflies thus enhancing the knowledge and general awareness about the insects which are a part of the larger animal kingdom. He/she will also learn to identify the common species from the rare and the endangered variety.

Drama and technology aided lessons will help to enhance their learning experience.

 

Language:

Introduction to digraphs and revision of the tricky words mentioned below:

I, the, he, she, me, be, we, to, was

Phonic books will reinforce the concepts learnt.

Do reinforce the use of new vocabulary: harm, hurt, ill-treat/mistreat, task, assignment, duty, pal, friend, buddy, appreciate, admire and praise.

 

Numeracy:

The child will learn numerals from 1 – 30 with number names one and two. We shall also do concepts of colour, pairing and recapitulation of shapes.
