Last term, the Pre-primaries in Room 20 were busy getting ready for the day when they found a little Beebot named Benji in the classroom. He had somehow made his way into our small world tray and was spotted hiding under some leaves! We later read a narrative about a fun yet risky playground adventure Benji and his brother, Bertie, had been on at North Perth Primary. The students learnt to orally retell the narrative, The Playground Adventure, and enjoyed coming up with some actions to help them retell the story. They have since innovated the original story with their own ideas and did a marvellous job!
As the students explored the text, they also participated in a variety of other learning experiences to extend their learning. They developed their coding skills by learning how to control the Beebots. They listened and responded to numerous poems about minibeasts. They also engaged with the design process by designing a minibeast to create with salt dough.
Term 3 has proved to be fun and exciting. Some other highlights have been attending swimming lessons, participating in our Drama Stars and protective behaviours incursions and joining in the Early Childhood sports day! We hope you enjoy taking a look through the pictures below to see some snapshots of Term 3 in Room 20.
