We have had a great start to Term One in Pre Primary. The children have settled into their new classroom and established positive relationships with their peers and teachers. We are engaging in lots of hands on, meaningful and fun learning activities in our indoor and outdoor environments. This term our integrated learning topic is ‘Community’. We are building our understanding of our classroom as a learning community.
In Week Two our ‘Letter of the Week’ was the letter S. We had some fun engaging in ‘hands on’ activities.
We have been exploring numbers as we are on our way counting to the 100th Day of School.
We were all excited when Mr Cogger filled our Pre Primary creek! It is a very popular spot in our bushland area and water play provides a great way to beat the heat.
We look forward to sharing more of our learning adventures with you soon.
On Wednesday the 4th of November, the Pre Primary classes hopped on a bus and travelled to REmida Re-Use Centre in North Perth.
REmida collects clean unused industry off cuts, discards and old stock in a myriad of shapes and sizes.
These items are used in children’s workshops and supplied to schools and daycare centres for educational activities, festivals, hobbyists and artists.
At REmida we had the wonderful opportunity to make a ‘Junk Bug’ out of recycled materials.
First we were inspired by real artists who talked to us about the great work REmida does collecting and recycling materials so that they don’t end up as landfill.
We were then set the challenge to create our ‘Junk Bug’ from recycled materials. We got to explore both of the supply rooms that were filled with hundreds of different materials.
We selected materials we wanted to use, found a work space and set to work.
After a great morning, we said ‘good-bye’ to REmida and hopped back on the bus. We then travelled to the new Nature Playground on Saw Avenue in Kings Park.
We sat underneath the shade of the gazebo and enjoyed lunch together. Then we played in the amazing nature-based playground. We explored a maze, climbed, jumped, balanced and slid down tunnels for an hour… then it was time to head back to school.
We had so much fun on our excursion!
Please visit our classrooms to see our ‘Junk Bugs’ and our writing and drawings about our favourite part of our excursion day.
Wonder what will our next recycling project will be?

Have a lovely weekend!

What fun we had on Friday when we invited Dads, Uncles and Grandads into Pre Primary for the morning to engage in some fun indoor and outdoor activities with the children. The children loved dressing Dads up to pose for a photo in the photo booth!
We decorated ties for our Dad’s and created art work with monster trucks in paint. We imprinted tools and hardware into play dough and made some interesting creations. We created sculptures with nuts, bolts, keys, chains and magnets.
We engaged in Maths activities – rolling and adding dice, playing ‘Adding Wars’ with playing cards, recognising and adding Australian coins and weighing objects on balance scales.
It was a beautiful sunny day and we made a lot of noise hammering at the wood work station outdoors. We kicked the footballs, played soccer and cricket and explored our playground and bush area with our Dads.
It was a busy morning and lots of fun was had by everyone!
