Fire Fighter visit to EC1

Fire Fighter visit to EC1

Today our kindergarten class was treated to a special visit from the Success Fire Fighting branch.

As part of our community helpers program this term, this visit was a huge hit.

Four fire fighters showed the class all of their safety equipment, their radio communications and a full tour of the fire truck. Each student was able to have a turn of the fire hose and received a special stamp.

The fire fighters radioed to base and the students got to hear a special message as well as the lights and sirens show.

A wonderful morning was had by all and the staff and students would like to thank the fire fighters for taking the time to speak to us today.

Community Helper Police Service Visit

Community Helper Police Service Visit

The kindergarten children have been very fortunate to have Police Officer Sam And Police Officer Chloe from the Cockburn Police station visit us today.

We learned what the role of the police officers in our community involves, how to contact them in an emergency and why they are so important for the community.

We then got to make our own hats and use the police stickers to turn each student into a junior officer.

The officers then showed us all their equipment, turned on their radios and took us out to see the vehicle. All students got to sit in the front seat and have their picture taken. We even got to watch the lights and sirens.

Spearwood kindergarten EC1 would love to thank Officer Sam and Officer Chloe for coming in today.

 

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!

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.
