This term we have been learning about plants and all the amazing things about them! We discussed and described parts of a flowering plant, differentiating different types of plants and the needs of a plant.
Plants need light to grow and so does our students with their learning! A little bit of guidance with students creativity, effort and imagination, we can see them grow, GRow, GROW!
Hence, we decided to create an artificial terrarium!
This was the process:
1. Went outside to Area 6 to find twigs and small branches for the trees.
2. Used coloured crepe/tissue paper to create colourful leaves on trees by tearing, rolling and gluing them on the trees.
Creating the Terrarium
1. Added soil for the base.
2. Carefully layered coloured sand, remembering not to mix the colours together.
3. Added pebbels for the final layer.
4. Inserted the artificial tree.
5. Decorated the around the surface with bushes that was cut up from artificial plants bought from the dollar store!
It was an exciting and a wonderful experience for the students! Hope you enjoy them:)
From little thing BIG things GROW…

What is Numeracy?
To be numerate is to confidently and effectively use mathematics to meet the everyday demands of life.
Why is numeracy important?
Numeracy enables you to develop logical thinking and reasoning strategies in your daily life. We need numeracy to solve problems and make sense of time, numbers, patterns and shapes for activities like cooking, reading a map or bill, reading instructions and even playing sport.
