This week we thought we would take this opportunity to share with our Kindergarten community some of the wonderful learning we have been doing in Science.
We have been discussing the ways humans and objects move. To explore this concept further we have participated in the scientific method of questioning, hypothesizing and most importantly testing! We observed the way in which objects moved across a variety of surfaces including carpets, desks and ramps. Some of the things we noticed included spinning, rolling, sliding and bouncing.
Currently Kindergarten are exploring the different types of weather. We are investigating ways in which weather influences our everyday lives, how it may change the activities we can do or the clothes we wear.
You may have seen our science board in the classroom. It has recordings of all of our wonderings we have posed regarding what the children want to learn about the weather.
We have continued on with our learning of sounds and recently we have discovered that vowels can make multiple sounds depending on the letters around them. The sounds and letter patterns we have learned include /igh/ as in light, /ai/ as in rain, /ee/ as in sheep, /oa/ as in road, /oo/ as in moon, /oo/ as in book, /ar/ as in car, /ur/ as in fur and /or/ as in fork.
Kindergarten teachers look forward to catching up with families in week 10 for parent/carer interviews.
