Every 2 weeks a new theme is introduced at Die Sterreweg and activities are planned around the theme.
The theme for the past 2 weeks was “My family and I”.
Our children drew, cut out and coloured in puppets representing the members of their family and held discussions on what roles each person plays within the family. A collage of images of our children, teachers and assistants was also put together – we at Die Sterreweg are also a beautiful family.
Creative activities are used to introduce the theme by allowing the children to participate and exercise the various house hold chores and responsibilities that family members play in day to day life, including grocery shopping, baking and cleaning. Accompanied by their teachers and Nel, our wonderful driver, the children went to the supermarket to purchase groceries for Die Sterreweg – for many of these children, this was their first visit to a supermarket, so was met with an incredible amount of excitement and enthusiasm.
The highlight and reward at the end of a very busy week, what could be more fun than a family picnic in the park! This theme has been so much fun and so fulfilling for all of us!
