St John Ambulance Service Visit

St John Ambulance Service Visit

The kindergarten students at Spearwood Primary have been fortunate to have a visit from the St John Ambulance service today.

As part of our community helpers program this term, the students were able to see first hand how important the ambulance service is. We all listened to Blade give her talk about when to call an ambulance and what an emergency is. We then got to go for a climb up inside the ambulance, test out the chairs and the bed and have a go at some of the equipment. At the end we were treated to a lights and sirens demonstration and all the students were gifted a sticker.

We would love to thank Blade from the St John Ambulance service for taking time to show us her ambulance today.

A visit from Ranger Kylie

A visit from Ranger Kylie

This term as part of our kindergarten program, we are looking at ways in which people in our community can help us.

We have been very fortunate to have the City of Cockburn ranger services come to class and have a talk with our students.

Ranger Kylie brought all her ranger equipment and demonstrated how she catches snakes, captures dogs and we even got to watch her talk to base with her walkie talkie. We then followed her out to her ranger vehicle and got to see inside.

The kindergarten students had lots of wonderful questions and enjoyed the whole morning. Ranger Kylie even gifted each student a special teddy bear to take home.

Thanks to the City of Cockburn for sending Ranger Kylie to our school!

EC1 Kindy seashell size sort and pattern play

EC1 Kindy seashell size sort and pattern play

On Wednesday 23rd, the kindy class had some tactile fun while practicing their size sorting with seashells and items collected from Woodman Point Reserve by Education Assistant, Mrs. Liddle. They sorted from largest to smallest (or smallest to largest) and traced the oceanic items.  They all were very interested and engaged and received a bit of a marine biology lesson too!

Then the kindy’s had a go at their pattern knowledge by selecting an assortment on 1-5 pictures and following a repetitive pattern. They did really well!

EC2 Daily Activities

EC2 Daily Activities

Our daily activities are maths and play.  The children love to use the dominoes chain reaction to see how long they can make the train. The children then push the first one that follows through and they all fall down in sequence. At the end of the day in playtime they all love to play  in the dress up area. The boys and the girls like to dress up in each others outfits.

The kindergarten students in EC1 had a wonderful day experimenting with paint. Using straws to blow the paint across the paper was a fun experience for all. It was great to spend an afternoon outside in the glorious sunshine with our bright and happy kindy kids.

Thank you and Congratulations to all of the students, I was impressed we had no students give up no matter how far they were behind.  Great sportsmanship shows great character.

Congratulations to Mrs Miller and Blue Faction – Spirit Shield Winners!  They started the day with the best cheering and marching and kept up that team spirit all day.  The other factions also did some great cheering thought the day.  Blue had already been picked as Spirit winners when, on the second last event, I looked over and saw them cheering for a year one boy in green in the egg and spoon race.  I was so proud of you all!
