Dog Safety

Image
 Today we learnt some very important lessons about how to stay safe when we are around dogs that we don't know.  Check it's sweet - before you meet! To understand - they sniff your hand! Chin or chest - that's the best! We are bringing home an information sheet to share today

Music Sessions Underway

This term we are lucky enough to have a music session each Thursday with Tobias. So far we have been learning about beat, rhythm and recognising songs. Tobias has had us using our bodies as instruments, and different instruments including shakers and drums. We have recognised patterns and repeated them, played bingo and noughts and crosses. We are looking forward to our coming sessions.

Life Education

Over the past two weeks we have had the opportunity to have two sessions with Megan and Harold. We focused on Cyber Safety. We learnt the importance of having a long password, keeping personal information to ourselves, not be involved in conversations online, not to share photos, once things have been shared on the internet they are part of the World Wide Web, think before you post, use sites suitable for our age - they have an age restriction for a reason, use devices where an adult can see you and only share with people you trust because once you have sent it you can't get it back. 

Camp 2022

  Vertical horizons V ertical horizons is an  adventure camp where you can do lots of different activities that  include water or not. Our team was lucky enough to go there for  a couple days. We attended a range of activities from a zipline to archery to the flying kiwi and many more super fun activities.  My favourite  activity was the flying kiwi because you were pulled high  into the air by your teammates and spun around in the air. They had delicious food including breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon  tea,  tea and dessert.   At vertical horizons there is a place and activity for everyone! Thanks to everyone for making Camp 2022 such a success!

Swim Safety

  We had a swim safety lesson today. We wore clothes over top of togs, 'fell overboard', treaded water for a minute, removed clothes (NOT togs), and continued treading water until the 'boat' came back, raised our hand to indicate we needed help, and were finally rescued! It was a tricky task but one that taught us the importance of always being safe and aware of our environment.
