The metre square adventure of 5/6s continues!
We came back to continue our explorations of one a metre square of Merri creek can tell us about our local ecosystems? This week 5/6s worked with Angela Foley from Merri Creek Management Committee learning about measurement practices and more about Merri Creek. We all learned heaps!
Invitation to participate with Scale Free Network
This is a message from Briony & Gregory from Scale Free Network: art-science collaborative https://scalefreenetwork.com.au/.
Hello! We have an exciting two weeks of Creekulum activities lined up with the Year 5/6 students and would love to invite parents and grandparents to take part. If you are able to join us from 11:30 am – 3:30 pm on any of the following days, we promise you an entertaining, educational exploration of the Merri Creek! Dates: Monday 22nd – Thursday 25th July. Monday 29th July – Thurs 1st August. Please get in touch with Natalie to let us know you’ll be joining us. The more the Merri-er 🙂
If you have raincoats size 10 to adult size that you no longer use, please bring them to the office as we’re collecting raincoats to have spare ones for 5/6s students (and 3/4s later this term). Thanks!
Merri Merri Walks
As mentioned in Compass we are planning some walks along the Merri Creek to coincide with the activities the children are doing as part of the Merri Merri Creek project. We are planning 3 walks on the following Sundays:
28 July (this has changed from the 21st July)
Each walk will be begin at 2pm and be approximately 5km return, beginning with a welcome and perhaps a game or introduction or intention for the walk. We believe this will be a manageable distance for most kids 4-5 years of age and above (however we can also let people know the start and end points if they want to organise one way journeys etc).
We will have someone talk through this at this Monday’s assembly to give a bit more information about how the walks will proceed and where we will be going.
