Mayfield Kindy visits Grovetown

The children From Mayfield Kindy can and visited us last Friday.
We organised some tabloid sports games for them to play.

We collected and set up all the equipment we needed for the tabloid sport games.

Then we explained how to play each game to all the kindy children.

We made sure the children were ok and knew what to do.

We cheered the children on as they tried their best.

We had a wonderful time helping the children.

We hope the children had a wonderful time too.

Our inventions

Creating our inventions today 

Math problems

We have gotten ready good at adding tens in the Osprey Room.

So this week we have been working on writing subtraction word problems for a buddy to solve.

We have been using the bundles of ice block sticks to check our answers.

Reflection Fridays

On a Friday we spend some time reflecting on our learning from this week.
We brainstorm and discuss what we have learnt this week and then we spend time writing about our learning in our journal.

We also share what we have written about our learning with our learning buddy.

This week, for the first time, 
we wrote about what was hard and what was easy in our learning this week.

Edible Garden

Deb got out the magnifying glasses and microscope so we could look at all the bugs in our garden.

We also planted some seeds today for our winter garden,

And we were so excited when Deb helped us make rain gauges.

Get Set Go

This year we are participating in the Get Set Go Physical Education program that focuses on developing the fundamental physical skills that underpin any sport.

Janice and Jenny come and visit us every three weeks to help us learn new skills.

We are currently focusing on learning to catch.

 When we are catching we are learning to: 
"keep our eyes on the ball"
 "get our hands ready"
"move to the ball"
"reach for the ball"
