We are learning about what plants need to grow.
Here are our experiment seeds. 
We have a bean with no water, a bean with no soil and a bean with no sun.
We wonder what will grow.

Agriculture Day

We worked hard to get ready for Ag Day. Some children made sweets, pikelets, hanging baskets, and decorated gumboots at home. Everyone made a decorated pot, a sand saucer and a piece of spring flower art. Enjoy the photos from our day.

Bailey did a great job leading her lamb. Well done Bailey!

Happy Birthday Miss Robinson

Miss Robinson had 50 balloons and her class very kindly shared them.

Measuring feet

Whose foot is longer than my foot? Whose foot is the longest or the shortest?
We drew around our feet. Lined them up at the bottom and compared them.
Mrs Stewart's foot is the biggest in our class!

Click here to see some ANZAC pictures.

We will be learning a little about ANZAC this week. It will be low key as these children are only five. Have a chat with your children about the pictures on the link above and what they mean to you. I have started with some pictures of things they will relate to at Memorial Park, and then gone on to the memorial and other pictures more relevant to ANZAC Day.

Humpty Dumpty

We have learned a few skills here including cutting, dying on wet strength cartridge with crayon resist, and folding paper to create a zigzag.
