Our Visit to the MUDLA

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?

Aicha: Spikey

Arabella: Bumpy

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.
