Inquiry Unit – Changes in our Backyard – Request for Help


Posted by Jane Doye | Posted in Inquiry - Change | Posted on October 7, 2018

Hi everyone,

I hope you have enjoyed a lovely break and are ready to tackle our last term of 2018.

This term, our inquiry unit focuses on minibeasts, life cycles and the changes that occur in our backyards. To support our learning, we are going to be keeping silkworms. They have been nurtured over the holidays by Mrs Moncrieff and are now ready to be introduced to our classrooms. However, with Mrs Moncrieff on long service leave this term, we do not have access to her plentiful mulberry tree. We are therefore asking our school community to help us with the supply of mulberry leaves to ensure our silkworms’ survival and to enhance our learning of life cycles.

If you have a mulberry tree at home and are happy to bring in some fresh leaves once or twice a week, could you please let me know ASAP.

I look forward to another successful term of learning and fun!

Mrs Doye 🙂

Hello. We have a tree until 22/10 when we move. Happy to help till then.

Thanks so much Katrina. I can’t believe how much they eat.

Hi Jane Doye
Hope you had a lovely break!
We have a mulberry tree that is only just getting its leaves so once it’s a little more established can bring some leaves to school.
Thanks Lou
