The Reception classes were the first of our Junior Primary classes to visit our Currency Creek EcoCentre this term! As part of their Biological Sciences unit “Staying Alive”, students engaged in a range of activities about the different types of living things found at the site and the things they require to stay alive.
There was a specific focus on the different bird species found at our EcoCentre and students explored the habitats birds live in, what they eat and how they build their nests. Students also looked at ways that we can attract birds into our own backyards at home by providing some of the things that they need.
During our EcoCentre excursions, all Junior Primary students will be involved in nature play activities, like cubby house construction and creating artwork, as we spend time outside, having fun and exploring the natural environment.
