On Friday 29th October, the Year Two’s went on an excursion to the Perth Zoo. We caught the bus in the morning from school and travelled to the Zoo. Once we arrived, we met the parent helpers inside and ate our crunch and sip. We broke off into our groups and some groups went exploring around the Zoo and the other groups went and did the guided activity called Gwabba Boodja. For this activity we met a Zoo Keeper at the Dingo exhibit and went and read a story where we learnt about the Noongar seasons and names for animals in the South West. Through story, costume and animal observations, we explored and celebrated the differences between animals, and how their bushland habitat provides for their survival.
We hope you all had a wonderful break 🙂
Please find attached the Parent Letter for Term Four.
We look forward to a fantastic term ahead!

Mrs Cogger visits the kindy every week to teach Science to the children. This term we have been learning about our five senses.
The children investigated how we could use bells and a magnet to make an instrument.
We used our sense of touch to explore water beads.
Our Pre-Primary children explored the contents of a Mystery Bag. The students are learning what everyday objects are made of.
We used our sense of smell to explore sensory containers with different scents such as chocolate, lemon, orange, vanilla etc.
There was much excitement for the Year 2 students this week as the students learned how water and vegetable oil don’t mix when making their lava lamp.
We have had a busy and fun start to Term 3!
Here are some of the things we have been getting up to.
We have enjoyed exploring our new play areas. Our new play areas include; a fruit market, money table, shape table and a teacher role play area.
Marnie – “They are fun! I like being on the cash register”
Rhian – “I like the teacher place because I like being a student and dressing up”
Roger – “I like the money area because we can play games and win”
Gabriella -“I like the fruit market because I like buying stuff and learning about different fruits”
In maths this term we will be learning about money. To support our learning of money we made two piggy banks. 2 Blues piggy bank is called Bluey and 2 Gold’s piggy bank is called Goldie. We have been using the piggy banks to save money for a fun reward at the end of the term. We earn money by…

We read the story ‘The rainbow serpent’ and made a rainbow serpent to symbolise our learning journey together.
