Last week Prep A, Prep 1/B and 1A visited the Maleny Community Gardens. The weather was perfect and we were met in the gardens by Kate and Madhu.
The children participated enthusiastically in many activities including examining different seeds and pods, planting corn seedlings, exploring who else lives in the garden from worms that live in the soil to butterflies, birds and bees, creating butterflies out of paper and decorating with oil pastels, building a scarecrow and dressing it in the Maleny State School uniform, mosaic work creating our own patterns with mosaic and cementing into a step to remember the Maleny visit, working with pressed flowers and making our own recycled watering can and many more.
At the end of a wonderful day we all joined in a song and dance led by the wonderful Kate and Mr Moghi. Each child was given a little packet of sunflower seeds to take home and plant. We hope the children are enjoying caring for their seeds at home and look forward to hearing about all the sunflowers popping up around Maleny. If you would like to hear the song and see Mr Mogi dance, have a look at the website www.Familyfeastival.com.au . (In Mr Moghis' course you can
hear the song we learnt!)
A big “thank you” to Kate, Madhu and the many, many helpers we had on the day. We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we all did.
Mrs Hicks, Mrs Bauer and Mr Greig
