Coco Beach on PhotoPeach

The KG’s visit Coco Beach

This week the KG classes visited the rock pools on Coco Beach. The purpose of the visit was to get a rich first hand learning experience by observing the creatures that live in this natural habitat. The current unit of inquiry is ‘Sharing the Planet’ and children were able to learn about the characteristics of these living creatures, look at the concept of interdependence within the rock pools and also discuss the impact we can have on the environment.

The adults helped children record their observations and the final list included over twenty different types of creatures like starfish, sea urchins, a variety of crabs, sea snails, eels, lots of tiny fish, skinks and turtles.

Everyone had a great time looking for new species and were excited to share their knowledge and sightings with the rest of the group.

Thank you to all the parent helpers who came along and were a part of this outing. The extra adult support enabled children to have a safe and more individualized learning experience. Thank you also to Miss Hannah who accompanied both trips and all the information she gave us about the sea creatures.

Reminder: Math morning on the 18th and KGH still have their class photo scheduled on the 17th.

KG assembly on the 27th of November.
