Fun making ANZAC biscuits.

 

On the Thursday the preps learnt about ANZAC DAY. Prep H and Prep B then joined together to make ANZAC biscuits. We were very clever because after reading through the recipe, collecting the ingredients and writing out the 5 steps we needed to follow, we then were left to our own devices to measure, mix and create our own tray of ANZAC biscuits. We worked in small teams and apart from being clever cooks we were also resourceful and cooperative team members. We discovered that it is very helpful to communicate well; to talk to our team members the whole way through to ensure we were on the right track. Everyone agreed that our ANZAC biscuits were delicious.

 

Did you make some at home aver the weekend?

 

Enjoy looking at these photos showing some of our clever talents.

Special Top Secret Workers

In our classroom in the last week of term, Little Ossies discovered a magical area.  Where there used to be a tent or kitchen or laundry area in our classroom there is now a secret burrow where only very special helpers are welcome.

We entered 3 at a time through a special entrance tunnel.

We had to help each other, as well as the Easter Bunny.

We hope the Easter Bunny’s extra helpers will get everything done needed before the final egg delivery is needed!

Getting grubby in the garden.

Part of our fun when learning about the letter g and its /g/ sound has involved getting into our garden. We certainly got grubby and had lots of fun planting our seedlings. We even planted a gardenia bush. The ground was quite dry and hard so we had to use big muscles and lots of perseverence to get the holes deep enough and we gave the ground a big drink of water before we planted each plant. We were careful not to damage the roots or the leaves of the plants so that they can still get their sunshine through the leaves and their water and nourishment from the soil. We also know that if it doesn’t rain enough we will have to water the plants each day. We have a special watering can that makes the water look just like raindrops or a shower.CIMG3364 CIMG3366 CIMG3367 CIMG3369 CIMG3371 CIMG3373 Such concentration and care to carefully extract the plant from its pot!

CIMG3374Look at those grubby hands!

CIMG3377 Do we look proud or what!!! Now to see how our garden fares over the autumn season.

After our successful gardening session we put our landscaping skills to work in the the sand pit – just for a bit more fun. I happened to notice that Charlotte and Indigo even included a working waterfall in their sandpit garden. What a shame I missed the photo of it! You will just have to use your imagination.CIMG3378 CIMG3379 CIMG3380
