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.


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.


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.

The Read Aloud Programme:

The Big Book Read Aloud Programme is an endeavour that the school has commenced in the Preprimary section. The Big Books enrich critical thinking and oral language development through modelled reading, through risk-free participation by the children and through the meaningful teaching of skills within context – I See…I Think…..& I Wonder…..These resources are very effective for the interactive read aloud and think aloud sessions that help teach reading strategies to develop comprehension, and emphasize on skills like prediction, visualization, asking questions, making connections and so on.

Dates to Remember:





Sugar Cookie Day

Class Activity


Green Day

Students to wear green coloured clothes and bring a well labeled green object for the show and tell activity.


Fun with Shapes

Circular to follow

At Home You Can:

Take your child for nature walks to parks and encourage him/her to watch television programs

that enhance his/her general knowledge. Spend your leisure time with your child by reading books.

To make their learning more interesting you can visit some websites mentioned below and explore books related to the theme.
