This afternoon 2 groups of children shared their learning from yesterday – around the 100 languages exploration of the story ‘The Last Tree in the City’
Olivia, Blake and Ella made an iMovie……… and shared it with the class.
Afterwards we continued looking at our Environmental Inquiry around how to care for our surroundings. Last week we focussed on our school environment, so today we thought of other places we use that also need our care.
We choose 2 to focus on: The beach and a playground / park (St Kilda playground)
We explored what elements make up this space, who can use it and then how to care for it. The children represented one of these areas in the learning journey.
Jacob : you have to look after the bushes by planting it and watering it.
Kushi: Do not put rubbish in the water or the pelicans will eat it and get hurt
Kimaaya: we need to take care of our playground and don’t put rubbish on the slide or on the swings or somebody will slide off them.
Tino: don’t put sand everywhere
Kaisha: you do not rip the grass out and you do not break stuff
Alyssa: I’m writing about the beach. I like doing it.
Sukpreet: you have to not throw rocks in the sand and you don’t have to walk around a mud. If you do it will get everywhere and the park will get muddy. You have to not go on the skid with your muddy shoes, if you do the slide will get muddy and the cleaner has to clean it.
Joydeep: when you go somewhere, you can’t leave things there and if you do then it will ruin the environment and if you always throw things, then you will think you’re not ruining the environment but it is.
Olivia S: we can take care of our environment by not littering and planting trees.
Ajoh: do not put rubbish on the floor and make sure all the sea animals are alive. Don’t cut the grass if it is short.
Gurnoor: Don’t put sand in the water
Today was Sukhpreet’s birthday – HAPPY 7th BIRTHDAY SUKH. He was a fantastic star of the day and bought in party bags that he had made with his mum to share with the whole class. Thank you Sukh and we hope you had a wonderful day.
