LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
A range of play based learning was set up in an engaging way for the children to freely explore this morning. The provocations linked to student interests, conversations and the Australian Curriculum.
our mascot – Tamoo and how do we show belonging?!!
Bees and Honey
Jason – they make honey in a beehive…lots of bees need to do it they get flowers to make the honey inside a beehive.
It tasted very sweet…like maple syrup but sweeter.
Kobe – bees make the honey by getting blossoms from flowers and turn it into honey…they are honeybees and make honey for people.
Gurshaan – the honey was sweet, so sweet, I liked it. I think the bees go to bee plants and get honey from the plant to make honey. I think they put it inside the beehive
Abel – its so sweet!! I like it. I think if you ar sick put some honey and lemon in a cup, this will make you not sick.
Kobe – yes honey and lemon tea can actually help you to fall asleep, I tried and fell asleep in one minute.
Abel – bees have stings! To protect their beehive and protect their honey. They take some nectar from the flowers, I saw nectar for real. Inside the flower is tiny orange parts that breaks into flour, this is nectar. They use this and turn it into the honey in a beehive.
Strawberries/foods from plants
Michael – the green part is abit sour
Richard – this one is sweet and juicy I think because it’s a nice red one
Krish – I like the strawberries
Andrew – its so healthy!
Michael – there are so many seeds, the seeds are actuall on the outside
Krish – see look at the very small seeds
Michael – I think flowers grow the strawberries
Krish – like sunflowers
Michael – see these leaves here, the green part…well the strawberry grows from there. Its green first then it ripes to red
Richard – ripe and red then you eat!! Yum!!
The children explored photobooth with different ’emotions’

MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD
We read the book ‘rudie nudie’ by Emma Quay and spoke about how we are all made in the image of God and discussed boys and girls.
This was then recorded by each child.
Go our heart rates up and our bodies moving!! Keeping fit is good for our minds, health, wellbeing and bodies 🙂
MATHS- TIME FOCUS
We wrote and/or drew a reflection about ‘In the morning I… In the night I….’
We read the story Dumazi and the big yellow Lion written by Valanga Khoza.
The children then chose new readers and story books to share with you tonight! Please remember to bring these into school each day so we can also read with your child.
We continued our books today…
