Healesville Sanctuary

Today the Year 1 and Year 2 students went to visit Healesville Sanctuary. We have been learning about the problems facing some Australian animals. We have been working out what we can do to help these animals.

We know a lot about the Tasmanian Devil, Corroboree Frog, Leadbeater’s Possum and the Helmeted Honeyeater.

What did you learn on the excursion boys and girls?

Oli – The scientists are trying to help get rid of the Facial Tumour Disease facing the Tasmanian devil.

Aleck – The Leadbeater’s Possum are critically endangered.

Ryder – The Corroboree Frog is losing its Alpine habitat.

Sarah – We were very busy walking and learning about lots of animals.

Charlie – My favourite animal was the Leadbeater’s Possum.

Writing Recipes

Students in 1 / 2 D have been learning about how to write a procedure. We decided many recipes follow this format.

We have started to collect some of our favourite recipes. We are hoping to make a class recipe book. Today we made Raspberry Rocky Road. Students were excited to prepare this sweet treat. Hopefully it tastes great.
