Let's Pretend

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to LPP blog. First, we would like to welcome Miss Sophie who joined our team. We are so happy to have her with us. We would also like to welcome sweet Thiago who joined our group. He is such a great addition to LPP.

Over the last few weeks we have been busy learning all about fairy tales. We had a lovely ‘entry point’ to start our unit called ‘Let’s Pretend’. All children and teachers came to school with their favourite book and wore a costume of their favorite character. One by one we stood on the stage, telling our friends about the book and why we like it. We noticed that the stories were in different languages and that in order to read Ella and Meshi's Hebrew books, we needed to read from right to left.

We talked about the meaning of the word ‘pretend’ and then played some pretend games. We loved pretending we were eating an ice cream or going to sleep. We pretended to be birds, dinosaurs, kings, babies. The children had many great ideas!

We have been learning about puppets from all around the world. All children made finger puppets, hand puppets and even created their own puppet theater.

We got to know so many beautiful stories such as ‘Little red ridding hood’, ‘The frog prince’, ‘Goldilocks and the three bears’, ‘The three little pigs’, ‘The gingerbread man’, ‘Three Billy Goats Gruff’ and we enjoyed singing many new songs.

We have had nice activities followed by the stories we have read.

We made baskets and baked fresh bread, just like Little Red Riding Hood! We cut fruit and made porridge just like the family of the three bears. We built a bridge and made goat and troll masks and pretended we were The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children loved it!

We talked about opposite words such as big and small, good and bad, right and wrong, Kind and mean, happy and sad.

Our exit point was a great success!  We celebrated the end of our Let’s pretend unit together with UPP. Each class acted out one story and it was so nice that for a minute we felt like in a real theatre.

We worked in small groups and practiced our fine motor skills. We have learnt to recognize and and to write our names and we enjoyed playing and learning about numbers.   

Lastly, we had many fun birthday parties over January and February. Finn, Lucas, Thibeau, Miwa, Paloma and Mariana, thank you for all your delicious cakes. We love you and we wish you all the best!

We would like to wish you all a happy and safe holiday.

Enjoy your family and friends and look for some spring signs…Its almost here.

Lots of love,

Miss Inbal, Miss Anne and Miss Sophie.
