This morning we visited the MUDLA (multi-disciplinary learning area) in the school.
The children explored and viewed the many different animals such as hopping mice, green tree frog, long-necked turtle, yabbies and a variety of fish.
Some children documented their observations through drawings.
Our friends in year 5/6 showed us Memphis, a bearded dragon. We had the opportunity to look closely at Memphis.
What can you see?
Aicha: I see his tail.
Omelia: and legs.
Will: It’s sticking to his body (the dragon was attached to Asher’s jumper)
Kanav: He’s stuck
Liam: His legs are moving.
Some of us then stroked and patted Memphis gently.
What does Memphis feel like?
Hani: I don’t like lizards
Tavae: I didn’t touch it.
Kanav: Feeled good.
Olivia: I touched it on the back. It was spiked and rough at the back.
We love exploring our environments and learning more about animals.
