There have been some exciting things happening in Kindy lately…
On the final day of Term 2, Kindergarten celebrated completing one hundred days of Kindergarten. This was a much anticipated event! Students had been counting down to this day since the very first day.
During a special assembly, students were presented with a special book by the Year 12 students in honour of this milestone. Students celebrated for the rest of the day with cupcakes, cool crafts, dress ups, play, and the opportunity to see what they would look like when they are 100 years old using an aging app.
The excitement was high throughout the day and it was a pleasure to celebrate this occasion with them. Kindergarten are now 100 days smarter, stronger, kinder, older and wiser!
In Term 2 Kindergarten students were sent a letter from Farmer Alison. She told us that she had never been to the city and would like to know what it was like. She challenged us to create a map of our local community.
So off we went! We went walking each Monday for four weeks in an effort to see what is in local community. After walking, we came back to school and attempted to replicate what we saw to create our own map. Students worked hard and the final outcome was magnificent.
This activity helps students to meet Geography outcomes. They are required to do fieldwork and look at local places and spaces. We will now use this map to look at the purpose of places in our local area and how they help to meet our needs.
This is part of a broader study about farms and cities and how every place plays a part in helping our communities to function and care for its people.
