On a mild autumn morning the Year 1 and 2 boys accompanied by Mrs Sloane, Mrs Gluskie and Mrs Dell’ Oste, travelled by bus to the CERES Environmental Park in Brunswick. On the way, the bus was filled with excited chatter as the boys anticipated their excursion. When we arrived at the Park, we were met by our guide, who took us to our work area. We talked about the weather patterns and our environment. The boys learned about the wind, different types of clouds, the indigenous seasons, garden critters and plants. We learned that we could tell which direction the wind was going by blowing bubbles and finally we discovered a variety of plants that can be eaten as we wandered through an edible garden maze. We finished our excursion with a quick play on the playground and then onto the bus and back to school where we walked down to the farm to tend and plant our own vegetable garden. We had a busy a fun filled day and look forward to watching our own garden grow.
