This term out children are learning about the different countries. Parents have been coming in to share a bit about the country they are from. We have been learning songs, languages and have seen some of the traditional outfits people wear. The children have loved every minute of learning more about the people who are part of their community. We look forward to learning about even more countries. ... See more
With all this lovely weather the children have been enjoying exploring both the indoor and outdoor classroom environments. A lot of work was done in our outdoor classroom over the summer holidays to make the space more inviting to children. We are also working towards our sustainability goals and have been learning how to use the worm farm and compost bins. It has been wonderful watching the children gain confidence in their environment after their long holiday break. We will also be at Newtown Fair tomorrow. Catch us There! ... See more

The children all really enjoyed the day and are excited for the term 2 trip! ... See more
