The crows and seagulls don’t spread out the rubbish, the crows and seagulls pick out all the food scraps to eat. Men in machines flatten down the rubbish and then put soil over the top of it!
We went on an excursion to Wastebusters. It was very interesting. Mick showed us around. We saw lots of things being packed and squashed for recycling. It was very noisy!Then we went to the transfer station and Mick told us all about the piles of things. The green waste is used as mulch around grape vines. Then we drove out to the Dooen landfill. We saw lots of rubbish. We saw a truck unload the rubbish and there were lots of crows and seagulls. They squash the rubbish and try to cover it quickly, so it doesn’t blow away. We had a great day and we all learnt a lot.
Welcome to our new student Riley. We hope he will enjoy his time at our great school.
Hi everyone, we hope you all had a nice holiday break. We are learning about “Space” for the next few weeks and we are finding out many interesting things. We are also creating a story about what we are doing in class that we will show to the parents at the end of the year. We are using digital photos, microphones to record our voices and also drawing using a program for the interactive white board. It is fun! In the second half of the term we will be learning about different foods.
Bye for now,
To all Students and their Families,
May you have a restful and relaxing holiday and may Easter Bunny be good to you.
