The BIG Crunch at Wandina 🫑🥒🥕

Wow! What a CROCODILE CRUNCH we heard this year! We are sure that the children must have opened their mouths very wide and then went CRUNCH at the same time because the office began to shake! There were no mouse nibbles this year! 🥦🍆

Teddy Bears at Wandina 🐻

On Wednesday, the Kindy was overrun by Teddy Bears! They were everywhere and even decided to hold a Teddy Bears Picnic. Luckily, all the little Kindy children heard about it and decided to join in too. They all shared the food, played games together and the Kindy children decided to take the teddies around the school. The Kindy children made sure the bears knew all the school wide behaviours and there was no growling or climbing trees. The teddies were just perfect. 🧸🎉🧸

THE GREAT VEGIE CRUNCH! 🐊

Wandina Primary is participating in this event on Wednesday 15th September at 10am. This is the day when we will hear all the children crunching like crocodiles on the vegies they have brought to school. It’s a fun time when we count down to hear the first BIG CRUNCH but sometimes all we hear is a nibble but then…..the children never let us down……..suddenly there is a crocodile crunch that we hear all around the school! Make sure you are listening at 10am and we’re sure that you will hear it too! 🥕🥦🫑🥒

Kitchen & Garden Project 🌱
Year 2/3 Room 6
"Today we watered the garden in front of our class in Block 2. We saw the broad bean seedlings and beetroot peeping through the soil. Some of us helped mulch the blue tubs and watered it deeply and some of us helped pick out the compost worms from the worm cafe. We had to dip our hands in the worm poo to retrieve the worms, eewww! Ms Chan said the worm poos real name is called castings and we found worm eggs in them as well.
We also found two red back spiders, Emma identified it and Ms Chan quickly pulverised it before it could attack us, aaahhh!!! 🕷

We had lots of fun in the garden! 🌈"

Thank you Ms Chan! 🌟

Arrive at 8.15am on Tuesday the 7th and go to the hall. We have not used this company before, but they have advised us that they will give the Sibling Envelopes out on the day. If your child is in Kindy B or they didn't have their photo on Tuesday, then go to the hall at 8.15am on Thursday 9th September. These envelopes have a pre-assigned Shootkey to order online and will streamline the sibling photo process on the day.
