Could we possibly pack more into 1 week? I don’t think so!

We started the week with a bang with our Green Hats maths incursion where the children transformed themselves into master builders in a planks workshop. They were required to use their intuitive spatial awareness and consider the shape, weight and orientation of the planks as they problem solved in teams to create a structure.

Thank you to all of those who attended and supported our Maths Night. For those who missed it, shape, pattern and symmetry were the order of the night in the Prep area. In case you haven’t noticed, your teachers don’t mind a dress up!

On Thursday, the sun was shining and it was a perfect day for our Community Walk. We visited Higher Ground where we bought a hot chocolate, the post office where we bought a stamp and posted a letter, Bendigo Bank where we saw a machine that identified fake money and IGA where we bought a piece of fruit. We finished our outing with a play in playground. We noticed many other community workers on our walk including the postman, builders, the hairdresser and a taxi driver. We had lots of discussions about how these people contribute to our community and at the end of the day we talked about how lucky we are to be part of such a wonderful local community.

  

Have a lovely weekend!
