We came back from the wetlands with a new fascination of God's creation and how we can care and love our environment.
At the end of Term 2, the Pre-Primary Red students explored the wetlands.
We discussed in class about habitats and how animals have a home. Students chose an animal that is commonly found in WA wetlands and investigated it.
They learnt where the animals live and what they look like. The students created artworks of their chosen animal and its habitat.
We were then ready to explore the wetlands to find our animals we investigated. We went into the wetlands with our gumboots on. It was lots of fun walking through the squelchy mud to find nests, burrows, and tracks. Each student took on an explorer role and thoroughly enjoyed it.
They discussed and debated what animals could have come through the area. Some animals that they guessed based on the surroundings were snakes, quendas, birds, spiders, rabbits, frogs, and kangaroos.

We thank God for the incredible creation He has blessed us with right next to our school. What a privilege to explore and learn about our Creator and His creation.
“The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.”
