A reminder that swimming lessons commence today and occur every day through til the end of the week. Parents are welcome to attend lessons to assist with helping to change the students before and after their lesson.
Recently we celebrated our 100th day of school! We also all turned into 100 year olds for the day… check us out!
Walking sticks, wrinkles, glasses… you name it, we had it!
Throughout the day we rotated through the prep classrooms doing activities based around the number 100. The day finished off with a big party to celebrate being 100 days smarter!
What a great time we had at the Fun Run! We travelled by bus down to the Shepparton Lake. When we got there we had to get into a group with all the Prep Boys and all the Prep Girls. Then we went with our group and ran a lap of the lake!
Everyone made it the whole way around, even Miss Sutherland!
Well done to Daniel who came first out of the Prep Boys!
This term we have been looking at Emergency Services. We were lucky enough to have four real firemen come and visit our classroom! They taught us about fire safety at home, and what to do if there is a fire in our house.
Here we are practicing ‘Get Down Low, and Go, Go, Go!’
The blanket we are crawling under is the pretend smoke, so we tried to stay below the smoke.
After we had been in the classroom we went outside and everyone had a turn of the fire hose!
The one thing that the fireman asked us to do for homework was to make sure we learn our home address. That way if we ever have to call ‘000’, we can tell the person on the phone where our house is.
For the last day of Term One we got a special treat- we got to do our writing outside! All week we had been practicing ‘writing for the whole time’ and ‘staying in the same spot while you write’. We became so good at these two things that Miss Sutherland decided we had earned ourselves a special writing lesson outside under the trees.
Late last term we had a visit from Goulburn Murray Water. A lady bought some water from the Shepparton Lake with her and we got to search through the water for Mini Beasts! We used magnifying glasses and spoons to scoop them out. Some of the things we found included shrimp, blood worms, and damselflies. It’s amazing what you can find when you look closely!
After a visit to the Goulburn Valley Base Hospital our class decided to set up a hospital. During investigations we talked about the different things a hospital needs. We also had a visit from Nurse Olivia and she helped us to learn how to treat different patients. Our hospital is now up and running.
