Lester and Clyde

We read Lester and Clyde by James Reece.  We thought about the message in the story and decided that we should –
  • Clean up ponds
  • Put rubbish in a bin 
  • Recycle cans and rubbish
  • Share the environment unselfishly
  • Use the environment carefully
  • Keep the environment clean
  • Respect other creatures and their homes

Life Education

We have had two visits to the Life Education caravan to visit Murielle and Harold and learn about our heart and the circulatory system.
We are learning to...
~ Understand that blood goes all around the body in the circulatory system
~ Describe how anything in the blood can travel throughout the body
~ Describe the function of the kidneys
Here is another great online resource that will help you learn more about the circulatory system.
  Check out other links and videos on our circulatory system wiki page – Click the link here.
