Hi everyone,

I’m sure that by now you know that this week has been all about silkworms. The children are totally immersed in our Term 4 Inquiry topic “Changes within our Backyard”. Our silkworms are thriving and a big special thank you must go to Eva, who has been keeping up the silkworm’s food supply with leaves from her mulberry tree.

The children have been reading all about silkworms and practising their “Questioning Owl” comprehension strategy, which has us asking questions as we read and finding the answers within our texts.

We have already learnt so much about silkworms, their habitat, their survival needs and their lifecycle. The silkworms are at the larva stage and we can’t wait to see what happens next!

We have also been writing about our silkworms, recording our observations.

We have been using our five senses to explore our sensory garden.

In maths, we have been revising “teen” numbers and I’m pleased to say that most students have a handle on the concept of a teen number being 1 ten and some extras, e.g. 13 is 1 ten and 3 extras. Well done Prep C!
