Blossom’s Thematic Learning and Creative Expression subjects are based on four different themes spread across the four terms in a year. The themes for the four terms are ‘All About Me’, ‘Environmental Awareness’, ‘The Animal Kingdom’ and ‘Around the World’ respectively. A variety of sub-themes related to the main theme are introduced in each term. In addition to these themes, these subjects also cover the significant events throughout the year, eg. Chinese New Year, Earth Day, Mother’s Day etc.
Thematic Learning exposes children to general knowledge and happenings around the world. It involves searching for information and learning more about the world around us. Children also gather information at home and eagerly share these information with their friends at school.
Creative Expression involves music & movement and art & craft activities and provides opportunities for the children to express themselves creatively. The children get their hands messy during the art & craft activities and they get to move and groove to music. For Playgroup to Nursery 2 classes Kindermusik’s “ABC Music and Me” is incorporated into the Creative Expression curriculum. Every term there is a Kindermusik theme to be introduced. Kindermusik provides the necessary materials and resources to prepare the lesson. Children explore by listening to music and using the musical instruments in different ways. There is also a Kindermusik “Take-Home Kit” to have a follow-up activity at home of what they have learnt in school.
