Mindfulness

Today we spoke to the children about the importance of conscious breathing, kindness meditation and mindful grounding. We focused our attention on kindness meditation. Kindness meditation cultivates a sense of care and compassion for the self and others. Kindness meditation aims to help students to develop a sense of peace and stability. It helped us keep our bodies cool and calm during this hot weather.

This morning Ms McCarthy took a group of children to help water the garden. The children showed great care for the environment and also had a bit of fun with the water! It was a cool start to our day 🙂

MUDLA & Fish Farm

Leo used the Ipad to document our visit to the Fish Farm and MUDLA room. We returned to the classroom and the students were eager to write their own blog descriptions!

Leo’s blog post:

This morning RAM and Miss McCarthy went to the Fish Farm. RAM feed the fish. RAM got out the Fish Farm and they go to the MUDLA. We were feeding all the animals. I saw hopping mouse, fish and the lobsters..no yabbies. It was funny when the fish splashed everyone.

Deeksha’s blog post:

I saw a turtle that was named Max and he was playing in the water and we feed him. We also feed the rainbow trout that jump and they splash you.

outdoor nature play

Welcome everyone to week 8!

We kick started our week by visiting Grevillia Reserve. Grevillia Reserve is a natural playground that provides our children with more opportunities than typical pre-formed playgrounds to develop gross-motor skills.

The children in RAM and RGC are imaginative. While exploring Grevillia and climbing the trees, their creative ways  show collaboration skills, inquiry, risk taking, engagement, positive feelings.
