Jack from Jack and the bean stalk visits our garden!

Millie, Jack, Christy, Eva and Emily G made Jacks for the beanstalks growing in our garden! They drew them, cut them out (with a bit of help if needed) and watched as they came out of the laminating machine ready for the garden.
Some of the 'Jacks' didn't want to go in our garden and went home with their creators at the end of the morning. BUT luckily we had four left to go on our plants!

'My Jack is going on this bean,' said Eva.

Here they all are climbing up the beanstalk to get to the Giant's Castle! We will have to make one of those next week!

Maddie brought in a possum to visit the strawberries in our garden. Just as well it was only a puppet!

Scarepossums in the Hidden Garden!

We have discovered that the beautiful strawberries in our new vegetable garden are getting eaten by something! We think it might be possums

So today lots of the children got together and made
SCAREPOSSUMS to scare the possums away.
After lots of discussion about how to scare them
away the recycle centre was raided and all the
shiney and dangly things that could be
found were threadedor tied onto

At end mat time, after admiring
our handiwork, we set off to
put our SCAREPOSSUMS in place!

The children poked the SCAREPOSSUMS into the
soil by the strawberries.

Stay away from our garden!

Jack's Pteradactyl Story

The Pteradactyl flew into a storm with thunder and lightning.

Then the sun came out.

Then a fierce tyranasaurus came along with his fierce eye.
He smelt the pteradactyl with his nostril and ATE him!

The fierce dinosaur then sat down and watched TV

The End

Here's the author, Jack, holding his book that he assembled himself. The illustration on the front depicts a dinosaur with a crack in its head as indicated by the arrow. It's a real dinosaur not a skeleton.

Grandparents Morning Tea

All the grandparents of the Kindy were invited to morning tea today Tuesday 3 Nov.
LOTS came along!
We started with a mat time.
Lucy and Eva had news and then we did a song or two!

The children had to stand to have their morning tea because they had very kindly given up their seat for their Grandparents!

Afterwards the Grandparents joined in playing with the children in the playground!

All aboard!!!

Thanks for coming to our Kindy today!

Planting our new plants!

Off to Plant Barn to buy new plants for our new garden!
