Gardening with 1W

 

Veggies are being planted left , right and centre!

1W had the time of their lives planting lettuce and a cherry tomato plant. The children had so much fun being outside.  They learnt about how the lettuce and cherry tomatoes needed to be planted and the depth of the hole required.

The best part about the afternoon was the discovery of the massive worm living in the veggie patch! This led to some very serious inquiry questions into worms and why they were there in the first place!

Overall, this was a great learning experience for 1W.  The children hope they can look after the plants so that they can 'make some money' selling the veggies!  I wonder if the massive worm will hang around to see the veggies?

Messy Science

The Year Sixes are quickly becoming excellent scientists.  They had to observe their findings as they analysed a range of messy trays.  What a way to engage them as they started their unit of work regarding the properties of materials!  Check out the pics below or in the gallery. 

 

Library Story Time

 

Story Time has commenced in the library.  You can see, by the pictures, that many children have embraced the extra opportunity to be read a story.  What a great new initiative Mrs McCormack and Mrs Sherlock!  I know where I will be next Wednesday at 8:20a.m.
