Welcome to Pre Primary
Dinoland came to visit our Kindy and Pre-Primary children! They got to meet JAMES the T-REX. Amazing! Huge! Scary! were just some of our words used to describe the dinosaur. Our presenter introduced many more dinosaurs to us, we were so lucky to experience an informative and interesting presentation.
Pre Primary students learnt all about ANZAC day and the brave men and women who worked hard to keep our home safe and who showed amazing friendship. We made these beautiful poppies in memory of them. We listened to ‘The Last Post’ and took a moment of silence to be grateful for the amazing ANZACs, all the people who protect our country and people and the wonderful place we call home.
In Pre Kindy we believe in using nature as a restorative place. With that in mind we created a vegetable garden in our nature playground as part of our Bush Kindy Programme. We turned our soil, we selected our seeds, we planted and we watered. Now we watch and we wait with great anticipation.
“Children have great affinity towards nature. Dirt, water, plants and small animals attract and hold children’s attention for hours, days, even a lifetime.” Ben Hewitt
Pre Primary have been introduced to Bush School. We learnt all about pollinators- how they are so important for our environment and how we can care for them. Students planted flowers in our garden and painted a colourful poster to welcome and attract our pollinator friends. We looked at the beautiful patterns and colours of different butterflies and created our own beautiful butterfly nature collages. We had fun learning outside and working together to make our school environment a beautiful place to be.
In Pre Primary Science we are learning all about living things and their needs. We discuss pets and what we must do to care for them in order to keep them happy and healthy. We now have our own class pets – caterpillar eggs, caterpillars, chrysalis’ and a butterfly to care for! In preparation for the celebration of Easter, we will observe and explore the life cycle of Butterflies and watch the amazing transformations taking place in our classroom over the next few weeks as our pets turn into beautiful butterflies.
