SCIENCEWORKS! With Prep W & Prep G

SCIENCEWORKS! With Prep W & Prep G

066

All the Preps went on a fantastic excursion to SCIENCEWORKS!

As part of our ‘On The Move’ topic, we went along to further our understanding of:

  • Forces, such as push and pull
  • Gravity
  • Materials
  • Toys, and how they move.

We enjoyed a special presentation of ‘The Toys & Forces Show’, presented by a very funny education officer who works at Scienceworks.

We then explored the ‘Ground Up’ exhibition, followed by the playground (after eating our lunch). Then we visited ‘Sportsworks’ and ‘Think Ahead’ exhibits.

Here are some photos:

Belle Vue Visits Manningham Rd ELC

Ms Woodhouse, Mr Robinson and some very lucky Belle Vue students went to visit the children and staff at Manningham Rd Early Learning Centre.

We ran a music session with the kinder students and talked to them about what school will be like next year.

We took some very excited junior school students who used to attend Manningham Rd when they were in kinder. They were extremely excited to see their old teachers!

We hope to see some of the children next year in Prep.

The Preps have been at school for 100 days! Can you believe it?

We held an amazing assembly to celebrate this wonderful day.
