On Monday 29 October Kindergarten ventured out beyond the gates of the school for our very first excursion. This was not just an adventure within our local area. NO! We went all the way to The Sydney Observatory in the city. This excursion supported our learning in Science about the Weather.
The excitement began travelling on the big school bus and for most children, this was a first. During the trip, there was some initial confusion with thinking we may be going to McDonald’s or Wet’nWild and that Parramatta was the city as we travelled along the M4. But as we made our way over the ANZAC Bridge, and with the Opera House and Harbour Bridge in view, all misconceptions were cleared up.
The program at The Sydney Observatory was specifically designed for the Kindergarten Science curriculum and was just amazing. The children had the opportunity to see how the weather changes with the seasons through time-lapse photography.
