CELERY & CARNATION EXPERIMENT!
In RE we have been learning about Baptism. We role played how to Baptise baby and discussed the symbols of Baptism. We talked about how WATER played an important role in Baptism and how Jesus asked his cousin John the Baptist to Baptise Him in the River Jordan. We read the story “Jesus and the Storm,” discussed how WATER played a role in this story and we also viewed this clip:

As part of our Science Inquiry unit this term, we have been learning about the cycle of day and night. We have had great discussions about the difference between night and day and the activities that people do during these times.
Together we devised an extensive list of jobs that people work in, at night time. We then investigated the types of clothing they may need to wear and the tools or equipment required to manage their jobs. If people worked at night time, they would need to sleep during the day. Hmm…sounds a little bit like NOCTURNAL ANIMALS...the other topic we are learning about!
“Paramedic” was on our list of jobs for “Night Workers.” It so happened that Maxwell’s dad in our class is a Paramedic and came to visit us this week with his Ambulance!
We hope you enjoy browsing through the gallery of photos from our Incursion!

What a fabulous Wednesday morning it was! The weather was glorious and the Kindy children were very excited to be hosting a pamper session for their beautiful mums! Preparations were taking place well before the big event! The children busily prepared and worked carefully on their drawings, created clay imprinted hearts and practiced their special song for mum! Cooking was underway too as they made chocolate snowballs and tic toc cups of teas.
Thanks go to all our mums and grandmothers who attended our special morning. We hope you were able to relax and be spoilt
In other news, our dramatic play space has transformed into a Japanese Restaurant! We conducted a class vote to decide on a suitable name for the restaurant. It was unanimous. The restaurant was named “Sushi Train.” Together with Mrs Aroozoo, the children created a menu plan and learnt about various traditional Japanese foods. Prices were added to the menu, a cash register and Australian dollars. Now, the restaurant was open for business! The children enjoyed painting the Japanese cherry blossoms, after researching and viewing what they looked like on the Apple TV. Thanks Mrs Aroozoo for you expertise!
In Literacy we have been busy learning about beats in words. The children are becoming very confident in clapping out and listening to the syllables in words. We have also been practising our Peggy-Lego pre-writing patterns and rhymes. This helps us with our fine motor skills, our pencil grip, upper core strength, drawing and writing skills. Everyday we are having a go at tracing and writing our names using correct letter formation.
We have been visiting our school Library every Friday this term and enjoy our time there. We have learnt that the library is a quiet place to read and think. We are now experts at understanding and following all the procedures in the library! We know how to locate books in the Junior Section and what to do with a shelf marker. We are able to identify the bar code on our books and know how to accession them. Most importantly, we have been discussing and learning about how to take care of our books at home and school. We love choosing and reading books quietly in our library.
