Movement is at the heart of each and every day down at Sunbird. Before our children can progress to Grade One where they will begin to read and write, their bodies need to become learning ready. Thus, the Grade R year is filled with exercises, games, play and various activities aimed at getting those little bodies fully prepared for big[Read More…]

We want school to be a place that students want to come to and we want each of our children to feel at home within their classroom.

Backwards Day was a BLAST!

The end of Grade R is fast approaching and by this point of the year our children have their daily routine completely waxed. Some might even say they know it backwards!

A MAGICAL trip for little people!

A MAGICAL trip for little people!

Our little cherubs were whisked of to the College of Magic this week. It was phenomenal to see the wonder and excitement in their eyes. They were happy to listen to Professor Bayle and even more in awe to see what he could do. They learned about juggling, rabbits out of  hats and also that a Magician is actually a profession. Needless to say that[Read More…]

3…2…1… Blast Off!

3…2…1… Blast Off!

Our space theme was based on our setbook, “There’s No Place Like Space”. It was definitely a theme that was well explored, had no limits and was loved by all. Circle Time was the highlight of the day as the children got to think out of the box about all that lay beyond what the eye could see. Their imaginations were[Read More…]
