Our Rainforest Mural

Posted by Ms Howes | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on July 30, 2013

As we were learning about the rainforest we decided to turn our room into one! We were inspired by the book ‘Where the Forest Meets the Sea’ by Jeannie Baker. So we decided to do a mural using some of her techniques. We got into groups and became experts on each layer so we knew what to include.    One thing we knew we needed was vines!! We made them out of crepe paper and hung them all around the room.  We had great fun making toucans and boa constrictors. We chose our favourite animals to add to the mural. Some of us made butterflies, some made chameleons, some made a jaguar and some made a caiman.

Our Excursion to the Zoo

When we went to the zoo it was very rainy, but that was perfect because we were learning about rainforests! So we felt like we were in one. But it definitely wasn’t hot  and humid like the Amazon or Daintree.

At St. Thomas’ we had a football clinic! At the football clinic we learnt how to: kick, handball and clean up all of the equipment. We all got a turn of kicking at the fence and hitting the target. By Landen

We had a great time at swimming. Here are some snapshots for you to enjoy…

As I went to the pool door and opened it, I walked in and felt the humid air blow on me. I heard echoes filling the air. When I got in the pool I felt warm water rush onto me and I had the best FUN! By Bianca

When   I   entered   the  centre  I  saw  sparkling   water   in  the   pool.   Then  I  felt  the  magic  air  puff  on my  skin.  I  heard  children  laughing  in  the  pool.  I  felt excited!!!! By Avalee

When I opened the door I felt  the thick and hot air brush against my skin. It felt steamy. There  were butterflies in my tummy. I saw heads bobbing up and down I saw big waves I heard kids yelling and waves crashing. By Will S

I opened the heavy door I felt butterflies in my tummy. I heard the preps swimming with laughter. Then I went in the pool. The water felt hot, my butterflies flew away!  By Paige

 

When I got in the pool I felt warm. When it got deeper it got colder. Then when I got out I was FREEZING!!! It was very noisy. I almost could not hear a thing! By Connor

The St. Thomas’s Garden

Posted by Ms Howes | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 30, 2013

We go to the garden every Thursday. Alia teaches us lots of things.  We have learnt about worms, they are invertebrates. They have 3 hearts! They have no brains but we need them on the garden. They help us to compost the garden. We have a worm farm and we collect the worm wee and put it on our plants. Sometimes we plant cuttings, sometimes we look for invertebrates, sometimes we look at leaves and draw them, sometimes we do the weeding, sometimes we plant weeds, sometimes we dig the compost. We have even sprayed garlic on the plants to stop the bugs from eating them.We are SO BUSY! We like to watchs the chooks and see if we can find some eggs. We are so lucky to have a garden at St Thomas’.
