The warm unseasonal weather we have experienced lately was perfect for us to really imagine we were in summer time for our Outside Time theme this past Friday.
In Science, we are learning about the seasons and weather and how these influence the way we live. After the rigors of the Cross Country, Prep Green and Prep White children were busy at the sunshine at Beerwah Beach (well, Prep sandpit cleverly in disguise), fishing, playing cricket, painting and colouring Summer pictures. However, the highlight of the day had to be the Icecream Parlour! The shopkeepers did a roaring trade with icecream cones and sundaes which were specially designed not to melt (or be eaten as salty playdough may LOOK good, but not taste so delicious!) Generous servings were made available to those in Admin who were surprised at the realistic food items presented! (We nearly tricked them!)
Autumn has now arrived and so the leaves in Prep are changing colour…..
