Moon Lantern Making

Yesterday afternoon the children were busy preparing for the Moon Lantern Festival.

Grandparents Morning

This morning we were joined by a number of grandparents, parents, family members and friends for Grandparents Morning. Together we engaged in a range of provocations that showed our family members our wonderful outlook on learning. It was fantastic to see so many family members engaging in our learning with us. We ended the fabulous morning with a shared morning tea.

Living Things at Grevillias Reserve

We have been learning all about all sorts of living things. Today we reflected on what makes something living. We discussed some of the things that living things do that non-living things do not do.

After we’d discussed the difference between living and non-living things we went to Grevillias Reserve with a challenge…

Can you find any living things at Grevillias Reserve?

Here is what we found…

Rubbish Police!

While some of us were outside on the oval at recess we noticed a lot of rubbish floating around. As a class we decided to help the environment and our animals and living things by cleaning up our school.

Well done superstars!

Literacy Investigations

This morning we nourished out Literacy Understandings during Literacy Investigations. During this time, we accessed a range of provocations that extended our thinking in reading, writing, story telling and oral language.
