We made a call out to our classroom community and were given lots of great things for our garden - a birdhouse, seedlings and donations of clothing and straw for our scarecrow. On Friday during discovery we got busy and started planting seeds to grow into seedlings for our garden, and stuffing our scarecrows legs.

During discovery, we enjoyed doing some fun Jack and the Beanstalk colouring in pages and mazes; using the computers (with help from our senior Digikids, Ansh and Matthew) and the KidPix application to make pictures; writing postcards, and our very popular cars, animals and construction...
