Athletics Day

Wow! We just loved watching the senior boys 100 metre race.

WA growing plants

We are growing plants towards our end of year meal. Check them out when you visit- the lettuce and parsley are looking awesome on the backdrop of the new paint. The sunflowers are growing super fast- the best fun is watering them. We can't believe that these started out as tiny seeds not so long ago.

Parachute

Sometimes it is just fun to be a 5 year old. This was part of our athletics day.

WALT write instructions

In order to write instructions you really need to experience the real thing, especially if you are talking about food and drink. We made a chocolate milk drink at school. The last instruction is stir and enjoy, we really did! Delicious.

WALT order instructions

Today we were learning how important it is to order instructions correctly. We had to read and then order these instructions correctly. Just cutting these up was a real skill. We were impressed by the cutting, glueing, reading and ordering skills in 'The Woodlands'. Well done to those children who finished early and helped other learners.

The latest game!

The latest game in 'The Woodlands' is the game of schools. Look at Kahli and Hayden. They were playing teachers and needed speakers just like Mrs Gibbs. Great thinking girls!

Luring the eels

At the QEII on Friday we used a couple of tricks to get the eel to come back to us. Firstly Mrs Cammock brought cat food to feed them and Will and Ruby flicked the surface of the water to make them think insects were around. We learnt at Mount Bruce that eels have a keen sense of smell and guess what? One slithered upstream from the culvert past the fence. It was so exciting. Pictured is Lucas in the stream- feeding the eel!
