In April we will continue and expand our theme of Spring , including Wild Life and Earth Day related topics too. Children will make crafts and painting to reflect these topics.

April showers will be here but we will endeavour to spend time outside the classroom to the trails and parks next to the Centre for picnics and play.

The children ended the month of March with a party including a movie and popcorn. Thank you to all the parents for sending snack items for the party. The children enjoyed an egg hunt and made Easter baskets to take home.

During April the children will focus on wildlife and Earth , learning about different wild animals and conservation and the importance of balance in the protection of  Earth. Look forward some interesting crafts coming home!
