During Term 4 we worked very hard to make our dinosaur projects! We researched facts about our dinosaur, wrote them down onto a big piece of paper and then decorated it with pictures. When they were laminated we presented them to the class using our big, clear voices. We are very proud of our work! Take a look 🙂

 

Chesterfield Farm!!!

The Preps went on their excursion to Chesterfield Farm! It was sooo much fun 🙂 We saw all the animals, went to the education centre and learnt all about farming, milked a cow, fed the animals, cuddled the baby animals in the nursery and even went on a tractor ride. We had a brilliant day 🙂

Oatlands Primary School held their very first Book Week Dress Up Day! Everyone put a lot of time and effort into their costumes and came dressed as their favourite book character. Congratulations to everyone, you all looked brilliant!!!

We also learnt what we should do if a dog is aggressive towards us. We met a beautiful dog. We learnt a lot today and it was great fun 🙂
