Workshop

This term in Pre Primary we have a workshop in the classroom. The children have been learning about the safety of tools, push and pull as well as taking things apart and putting them back together. Some great conversation ensure as they “work” in the workshop along with plenty of noise to go with it.  Remember, Safety First!

Exploring our senses

During Science with Mrs Cherubino the Pre Primary children are exploring their 5 senses and why they are so important. The children went on a walk around the school while taking photos. They then made a pic collage and explained to the rest of the class what senses were explored and what they found. Next the children rotated between each sense and were able to touch, see, smell, listen and even TASTE! Some amazing discoveries and expressions, especially after tasting. 

Constable Care

Pre Primary children recently travelled to the Constable Care safety school.  We learnt all about Road safety and pretended we were the cars on the road. We had to keep left, stop at the red lights and give way to other cars (bikes) and pedestrians. The children learned some very important life skills

Lifecycles

Lifecycles have been one of the focuses this term in both the PP & Year 5 classes.

The Pre Primary students have watched chicks hatch in their classroom as well as exploring, ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ story, while the Year 5 students have a new Stick insect called ‘Ninja’ and ‘Joogie’ the Preying mantis. 

Some of the highlights of Buddy Time recently has seen the children working together on an iMovie video using plasticine to create stages of a life cycle from seed to plant and egg to chicken.

Their next combined adventurous project is to plan and build chicken huts. 

Gardening Buddies

The Pre Primary students along with their Yr 5 buddies were very busy last week in attending to the school’s vegie garden.  They planted new crops of carrots, snow peas, tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuces with Mrs Harney.  Can’t wait to watch them grow!

Obstacle Course Fun!

During morning tea and lunch time recently the children enjoyed experimenting with their obstacle course. They were climbing, jumping and going over and under. We even had some rolling on the mat! Great fun in the sun!
