Pelicans Class

Term 3 Events and Activities

The Pelicans have continued their busy journey this semester: science, gardening, cross country and another visit from Quack, the duck.

Our children are most definitely having a well-rounded education and exploring all areas of their learning and interest. The photos below are some testimony of what the Pelicans are doing.

How are our new children coping?

It does look like a harmonious room and children are becoming engaged, happy and exploring new worlds.

Talking about fun and healthy food

The Pelicans today had a wonderful time savouring their own home made 'watermelon pizza'. Great success with happy tummies.

The Pelicans have been celebrating multiculturism

Our school and indeed each class includes children from many cultural backgrounds: this makes our school so rich of traditions and differentiated ways to understand our world.

Our Jewish families shared a Hanukka celebration with children.

The American culture was celebrated through traditional Thanksgiving activities.

Of course, Christmas is part of the celebrations at the end of the year, and this was acknowledged with gingerbread making (yum) and reindeer antlers used for the Carols By Candlelight event at the Caboolture Montessori School.

Zoe’s duck, Qwackers visited the Pelican room today.  The Seahorses (Cycle 2) popped in for a visit also.  Qwackers allowed everyone to pat him and then he had a bath!

Welcome to the Pelicans Class

The Pelicans have had an eventful term: from deep concentration of class personalised table mat making, to delicious pizza making, a visit from Ocean Life and ending with a fabulous end of term concert and work presentation. The children have enjoyed every event and participated fully. Fun, laughter and strong focus was present for each activity. Parents attended various events and also participated. Working together we achieve the best results. Thanks to parents and children!

Peer Tutoring in Early Childhood

Our Cycle one children are enjoying visits from our Cycle two students to encourage and motivate reading. The older children are opening the world of magic that is drawn from pages of interesting books. The engagement and interaction are proving to be an effective way to introduce literacy to our 3, 4 and 5 year olds.

The older students are growing their confidence not just with reading but as little leaders and guides for younger peers.

This process is happening school wide, where older students bring age appropriate books to earlier grades and read to them; reading is not the only literacy item addressed: comprehension and early decoding is addressed, as well as the offer for younger students to read to the group.

Thank you students!
