Morning tea- some fruits and baked beans with bread
This morning, Miss Jess took children inside and they have a little talk about ANZAC day. Then, we sang a song ’Waltzing Matilda’. They loved this song and asked Miss Jess again and again.
As a transition to morning tea, Children moved to bathroom to wash their hands by marching like a soldier.
At 10am, we had ‘Wild Rangers Wildlife Encounters’. Children were so excited to see a turtle, a lizard, a big snake and an owl. They enjoyed touching the as well.
Before lunch, Mr Lachie created his own story about ‘Reptiles ‘. Children were so excited to Mr Lochile which reptiles they.
