This week we are learning about time. We are learning to name, identify and order the days of the week and months of the year.

We are singing lots of songs and playing games including:

A free interactive game for the computer is on the Roy the Zebra website. This website has a range of free and paid games including identifying where to put capital letters and full stops in sentences.

This week in Mathematics we have been learning about location and position.

We brainstormed a list of words and gave and followed instructions to move our bodies around the room. Such as through, under, between, behind, in front, in, on and out.

We read and listened to stories including Rosie’s Walk and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. We were all able to identify the location and position words in the stories. Below are the links for the stories.

One of our favourite activities was going outside and taking photos of ourselves in different locations. We used all of the photos to make a class book. Here are some of the photos…..can you work out the location or position for each photo?

Western Water Incursion

Posted by missdouglas | Posted in Inquiry | Posted on March 4, 2015

This morning we had a Western Water incursion which is provided free to schools and kindergartens by Western Water.

Jackie spent 45 minutes with us teaching us about water and the water cycle.

We learnt the importance of saving water and learnt about the Western Water mascot ‘Sammy the Snake’. We looked at the difference between old nozzles on hoses and water saving nozzles.

We discussed the different uses of water and learnt that it is very important. We use it for so many things including drinking, cleaning, washing, helping plants grow and to make things including cars and plastic.

The water cycle is very interesting. Water evaporates into water vapour and goes high into the sky to make clouds. Then it gets cold and the vapour turns back into a liquid as rain. It if gets really cold it can freeze and become snow or hail. It then keeps going around in a cycle.

We listened to a story about the water cycle and then acted it out using costumes.

Below are some photos from our play.
