 Term 3. Week 1

Welcome Spring… Finally!

We had so much fun learning about Spring last week. We spoke about what happens during Spring time; flowers blooming, the grass starts to go green again, leaves start showing on the trees and most importantly, the weather starts to get warmer! Yay!

We also spoke about having respect for plants, flowers and trees. We learned that we are not allowed to break or damaged a tree, and that we can only pick flowers if we are going to use them for something. 

“Spring, a lovely reminder of how beautiful change can be.” Spring is all about new beginnings and changes. Spring brings new growth, weed out the bad and make room for something beautiful. Let’s all make it our Spring time goals, after such a challenging year, to make some changes, get rid of the bad in our lives to make space for beautiful things!

For art this week we made one beautiful art piece, but you are going to have to wait for our Art Expo to see it!

Thank you to everyone who supported our plants and flower sale, or donated plants and compost for us to use. You can have a look at the beautiful gardens and watch their progress as you walk into school every morning.

We would also like to thank all our Bugs who brought super cool items for show and tell last Friday. We loved seeing your goodies and hearing all about them!

Term 3. Week 2

WOW!!! What a week we have had! We are so proud of all of our Bugs for doing so well with photographs! Uncle Tiago and Teacher Gemma (who was assisting with the photos) were blown away at how brave you all were, and how well you smiled!

 We had a great week learning about trees plants, wood and paper and all the amazing things that can be done with them. We learned that trees are wood, and that wood is then used to make the paper that we create all of our beautiful art work on. We reinforced last week’s lesson about respecting nature and the beautiful world we have been given!

For art this week, we used recycled and natural materials to make amazing “parts of a tree” art works. We used pipe cleaners for the roots, bark we found on the ground for the trunk, leaves we collected for the leaves (obviously ;)) and sand from the ground to make the earth that the trees live and grow in.

We also made a huge 3D tree by painting a cardboard pipe brown, using more bark to cover it and collecting fallen branches that were placed inside.

We hope you are all super excited and getting in touch with your creative sides for our amazing hat parade! We can’t wait to see the incredible creations!

We are wishing all of our sick Bugs a speedy recovery and hope we can have a full class next week!

Have a wonderful weekend!
