Super Fun Day at the Beach

We took the kids for a short trip to the beach at the Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside recently.

Oh yes, it was super fun! From scooping sand to splashing water, the beach offers endless sensory stimulation and a wide variety of learning opportunities.

First, let’s start with helping to ensure the beach is clear from any rubbish or other possibly dangerous or sharp objects.

Done cleaning. What’s next? PLAYtime!

Wonder what is there to strategise. Girls. Hmm.

Ohh.. nak main masak-masak rupanya 😉

Drawing on the sand can be pretty relaxing and stress-free. No need pencils!

Ever so willing to be buried. Awesome girl!

Wow. The sand flows out easily.

Looking for tiny crabs maybe?

How about some limbo? You guys rock!

Picnic time

Blessed to have this nice beach so close to our school. Alhamdulillah.

One for the album. So glad we came here.

Good bye beach, will visit you again, InshaaAllah.

Post-trip conversation on the way back:

But teacher, why can’t we jump in the water? 😉


Ok kids, do bring your swimming suit for our next water activity ok? Beach party next!

Rain Rain Please Don’t Go Away

Rain is a blessing,

From Allah Ar- Rahim,

To all of us living things,

So, we can live and keep growing.


Rain is a blessing,

Make dua’ when it’s raining,

Allahuma Soyyiban Nafi’an


Islamic Children Song


We wished for a rainy day so that we could play outside in the rain, but Allah gave us sunny day instead. 😉

All set and ready with raincoats and umbrellas, we went ahead with the plan.

Water hose to the rescue! Bring on the rain, teacher!

Get ready kids… here comes the rain!

It’s raining now!

All wet!

The ground gets wet too

Happily standing in the rain

I see a little bit of puddle there

Let’s jump!

Ok kids, let’s go inside and dry up ourselves. No teacher… more rain pleaseeeee!

So we dried up ourselves and started counting raindrops

and we made rain in a jar

and spattered some colours on an umbrella!

Oh what fun we had! Alhamdulillah!

Plastic Bag Kite – Finding Joy in the Simple Things

“The most simple things can bring the most happiness.”

Izabella Scorupco

True indeed. A plastic bag and a string are all you need to make the kids happily run around. On top of that, they learnt about the two important things when it comes to flying a kite, which are gravity and lift (the wind blows).

On your mark, get set, GO!

If I don’t run, will it fly?

Trying to solve a problem of a tangled string

That is really a nice balloony kite you got there!


Plastic bag kite – tried and tested! How about you?

This is what we do in the morning

First thing in the morning.. go PLAY outside!

Something that our kids really look forward to.

Alhamdulillah for the outdoor space.

Indeed, the outdoor space is a crucial must-have at all Alif Ceria centres. Having ample outdoor space not only allows the kids to do all sorts of physical movement to keep fit and able to channel their energy, it also offers massive potential for experiential learning – the hot sun, muddy soil, variety of plants and flowers, water play, nature walk and many more. Life’s best lessons are outside the classroom, agree? 😉
