Rec A Alligators

And that’s a wrap

Wow, that's it. Done. Classrooms bare, children gone. A bittersweet time for me, as it's great to see how much your children have all developed in all aspects of learning, but hard to let them go. That's the nature of the beast with this teaching malarkey though. Rough with the ...

Prepping for Prep (and the beginning of the end…)

image-764The penultimate week of the school year included a public holiday, transition day and end of year class parties so safe to say we've been pretty busy again! Thanks so very much to both our AM and PM class parents, Liz and Yvonne, for arranging fabulous end of year celebrations ...

Cars and water transporters

image-754We had a busy, fun-filled five day week this week (well it ended up being four for the PM with the red rain) and were getting up to all kinds of things. Some stand-outs were drawing our own car mats for the numerous cars Ms Zoe's boys donated to school ...

In the Spotlight

image-742This week was largely taken up with getting ready for our end of year Spotlight celebration of the Performing Arts. I hope you were as proud of your lovely little performers as we were on Thursday - they were superstars up on that big stage?! In between rehearsing we also found ...

Sharing the Plants

image-729Well, we were quite excited to come back on Monday and see whose beans had grown! (Less excited when ours were not ones which had, but it did provoke some good scientific reasoning). We also used it as an opportunity to show how caring we are, as those of us whose ...

Three for three

image-724The third three day week (for the students) in a row was pretty choppy but everyone made it to Friday. The main 'event' for our UOI this week was calling ourselves scientists and doing an experiment. We chose the materials we wanted to use to try and make some beans ...

Vets and SLLRs

image-712We had a very busy three days, trying to get our heads around the idea of being the 'teacher' for our parents for our SLLR on either Thursday or Friday this week. From what we've seen today, everyone has done a great job so far - lots more to follow ...

And we’re back!

image-704It's been a fast start back with only a three day week, but the beauty of this age at this time of year is that re-entry is pretty smooth. We quickly got back into routines and happily shared our holiday news with classmates and/or at the journal table.  We were also ...

Eggcellent fun!

image-697Well we made it! That felt like a pretty long stretch of term for all of us I think - there are certainly some adults and children really looking forward to this break. :) We spent this week getting back into our Celebrations inquiry by thinking about Easter and why it ...

Hamster and Field Trip

image-686She's here! Excitement reached fever pitch on Monday as people gradually realised Ms Zoe had (finally) kept her promise and sourced a class hamster. The AM children reached consensus (ish) on calling her 'Rosie', while PM appear to all be calling her something different. Anyway, it's all very exciting whatever her name ...
