Today a bunch of student had their 'Garden Explore' opt in! This was when they are able to explore around our outdoor classroom and in the vegetable garden. Today they found all sorts of vegetables they are wanting to into their dinners tonight. We also built a hut and had to share all of the equipment. It was so much fun!! Check out some of our photos!!
Our topic this term is MACHINES!! We are learning to find solutions to problems that can affect us in our everyday lives. This week we have been talking about how we can develop a machine that will help sort out rubbish around our school. We worked collaboratively with some of our classmates and completed an IDEATE (idea/create) sheet with lots of our different ideas. Once we had done this we had to decide on our best design (or designs) then draw up a plan for building a model of our rubbish machine. Next week... we get to BUILD it!! How exciting!! Keep watching the blog to see some of our designs. We may even video a few groups explaining their models to you as well!
Everyday we work hard to complete a variety of activities to support us in our Reading. We have to be very good at managing ourselves and making sure we do our activities properly. Once we have completed all the 'Must Do' activities then we are allowed to start our 'Can Do' tasks. Our SILVER Self Managers are great at doing this!!
We had a great time with paint during this activity!! Lots of carefully work making sure our paints didn't mix together, what colours would work well together, how to layer our flower petals and how to not get paint on ourselves!! So much fun and what beautiful results :)
