Slatey Creek Bush Experience!


Today a group of Pod 1 students went to the Creswick State Forest and visited Slatey Creek with Mr Guest and Tara. Together we took part in fun and healthy outdoor activities such as bush walking, cubby building, tag and teamwork games.
I have 2 questions for each of you who were lucky enough to visit Slatey Creek:

1) What was your favourite part of the day?

2 What was the interesting item that you found in the bush and what are 3 words you wrote to describe it?

Great work on being healthy and active Pod 1 students!

1st Kinder Transition

Today Mr Guest and Bridget were lucky enough to meet the kinder kids who will be in pod 1 next year. We explored the school, visited the playground, Mr Grill’s gym, Mr Ross’s woodwork room, Mrs Gibson’s art room and then finished our trip with iPads in the ICT room. Everyone was well behaved and had a great time. We can’t wait to see you in Pod 1 in 2016!

Below is a recount of the farm excursion by Djarkira.

On Friday Pod 1 went on an excursion to the farm. First I saw cows. The cows poo was smelly and gross. Next we saw Kevin the fat pig and the pony with the sharp teeth. Soon we got some bread to feed the ducks. It was fun at the farm. It was awesome!

Boys Group With Mr Guest

Noah, Bailey and Bailey

Mr Guest’s boys group have been working on procedural writing. The boys found the ingredients needed to create pancakes from scratch. They then wrote down the step by step instructions on how to make DELICIOUS pancakes. We were then lucky enough to share Nat’s kitchen and followed our instructions to create our lunch which we topped off with maple syrup, honey and jam! The boys all worked extremely well in the kitchen measuring ingredients and reading the instructions.

Well done boys!

What was your favorite part about creating and eating the pancakes boys?
