We have enjoyed our visits from Year 9 students Scarlett and Tom, who joined us for their community service: helping make the beds, washing up, cleaning the kitchen, buttering crunchy buns, wiping down the tables, sweeping the floor and caring for our guinea pigs Scuffles and Snuggles.
Last week we went for a walk to see what adventures could be had under the shade of the Coolamon Tree. On our way, we stopped to smell the sweet scent of the native star jasmine on our fence, and the marshmallow sweetness of the bower vine (which we just want to eat!) and the delicious honeysuckle. But when we saw the gardenias, oh my! The children nearly tripped over their feet trying to get a smell, with their noses pushed deep within the petals, to breathe every bit of scent into their whole being!
Continuing on our walk, we bumped into our beloved Farmer Beau (who often appears in our Preschool stories) without his flippy floppy hat! The children called out "where's your flippy floppy hat, Farmer Beau?" Farmer Beau went to his shed to find his hat and, on the way, cut us some sugar cane to take back to Preschool. Thank you, Farmer Beau!
On we went to see what else could we find and, when we reached the Coolamon Tree, to our surprise, we came across four fabulous forest cubbies to play in! Thank you, dear friends of Linda's Class 3. What adventures we had playing together amongst your magical creations.
We are looking forward to another walk next week in search of more adventures.
