FUNdamentals Marshland Newsletter March-April 2017
We are very excited to Welcome a new member to our Fundamentals Family. We welcome Nacho! Our Flemish Giant Rabbit. has settled in very well to preschool, and has made a lot of children very happy. Nacho has been a great support for our children especially when they are a big sad. You will often find Nacho hopping around the playground or snuggled up to the teachers and children. It would be really appreciated if you could occasionally donate any left apples, carrots or Nacho's favourite, Silverbeet. We thank you in advance
Ryder and Melanie were very kind to donate Nacho to us, and we would like to say a big thank you. to the Sullivan family for donating such a cool wee buddy to the family!
If you would like to take Nacho home for the weekend or Holidays, please let us know, he loves to free range out of his cage as long as the area is secure away from roads and other dangers. His cage does fold down but you will need a larger vehicle to transport him and his home!
On Wednesday 22nd March, the children came to preschool feeling very excited!! We were off on a trip to Science Alive with some of the children from Fundamentals Merivale. This was very exciting because we got to go on a big bus to the venue. We left Marshlands and headed to Merivale to pick up our friends, then we were on our way...
Once there we had a quick morning tea while we waited till we could go inside. Once inside we were very excited to see so many different activities and experiences on offer for the child to explore. Lots of children liked building with the big blocks in the construction area. The animals were a big hit, with the ponies, alpaca, chickens, pigs and rabbits. We loved the air activities with the parachutes coming out the top, lots of puzzle tables and the space section which related to our current topic.Lots of hands on learning was happening and it was great to see all the children engaged and interested.. we even had positive comments back about the behaviour of our children so that is great.. Well Done families!
