“CIRCUS” was recently a two-week theme at Hermannsburg’s Kindergarten.

It was a great theme for getting our Little Oaks to exercise - they pretended to be circus animals, acrobats, clowns and even jugglers.

We read stories about clowns, made popcorn and created our own circus tent with all the important characters in it, like acrobats, the ring master, tight rope walkers, the lion tamer and not forgetting the clowns.

At the end of our theme weeks, our Little Oaks proudly took home their circus tents to continue playing with them.

Another great way to develop fine motor skills, as well as bilateral co-ordination skills is play dough.

The malleability of play dough makes it fun for investigation and exploration, and secretly builds up strength in all the tiny hand muscles and tendons, making them ready for pencil and control of scissors later on.

Play dough provides a great sensory medium and can be used as a fantastic way to practice letter and number work as the children form letters of the alphabet, spell out their own names or make numbers with the play dough.
