Following on from the Two Bob show, the children were challenged with making a money box using only cardboard and tape. The money box had to hold different sized coins and money had to go in... but not come out! We had some made so well that we lost a few of the test coins! Check them out...
All children in the school were fortunate to have a visit from the Children's Theatre Company on Thursday, who performed a show called "Two-Bob" on behalf of the Horizon Credit Union. The show was very fast paced, and very funny... and focussed on the concept of saving money.
Following on from our sessions looking at UPstanders, we talked about communication. The children were then challenged with making a communication device that they could use to communicate with someone else, without shouting. They problem solved to come up with some wonderful ideas! We had various types of megaphones, cup-string phones and even a note written on a piece of paper made into a paper aeroplane! We had a small discussion about sound waves after the children had shared their devices. You may like to continue this discussion at home.
"If you go down in the woods today you're in for a big surprise..." We weren't in the woods, but we had a wonderful time at our Teddy Bears Picnic at the beginning of the term. Our Year Six buddies used their creative and engineering skills to work to create some wonderful stations for the teddies. There was an icecream shop, a hotel, a puppet show, a zoo, a disco, an army bunker and a cafe. The Preschool children from BELC and HOPE joined us for a wonderful afternoon of fun, dancing and delicious teddy food. A big thank you to Year Six and the Year Six teachers for helping to make this happen.
Leading up to the picnic, we did Teddy Bear maths - measuring, weighing and counting our bears; did observational drawings and paintings of our teddies; teddy descriptions; made teddy biscuits; used our teddies for movement and maths and had a whole lot of teddy fun!
The AFL Skills day held at Captain Oldrey Park, organised on behalf of the Broulee/Moruya Giants, was a huge success! All children were kept active and engaged... and all finished up feeling quite exhausted! A big thank you to the organisers and the students from Carrol College and St Peters who helped run the stations.
Mrs Cathy West, Mrs Clare Dunn and Mr Graham Enright enjoy sharing learning from the Kindergarten day with you. Please comment so that we know we are reaching you :o)
