Wow, how much fun we had making capital letters for our days of the weeks by using all sizes of sticks. Some children even wrote whole words or constructed giant letters! One group found alliteration words for their days of the week and presented them to the whole class. Very impressive!
Today the children were learning about different kinds of trees and how we can identify them by looking at their leaves. They went on a leaf treasure hunt to match up real leaves to our leaf identification
Later we created some art using the leaves and extra materials we found.
Today is science day and we have been looking at how food travels around the world and arrives in our supermarkets. We looked at food packaging and thought about why it is used.
This afternoon we did our first scientific experiment. We planned an investigation in small groups to find which packaging would be best to protect a strawberry. We chose 2 types of packages and wrapped up a strawberry. Mrs Barratt then dropped it and we looked to see how bruised it was !
Today we learnt about the Aboriginal festivals and celebrations. We watched them singing and dancing to the music played on a didgeridoo. Next we made our own . We tried very hard to make patterns with finger print dots.
