What is happening at Wexford ELC?
GELC Play-based Learning
In GELC Play-based learning children actively engage with people, objects and the environment. When playing, children may be organising, constructing, manipulating, pretending, exploring, investigating, creating, interacting, imagining, negotiating and making sense of their worlds. It promotes a broad range of literacy and numeracy skills and the teachers use the play in speaking and writing activities.
The students participated in the Wexford Book Week parade. They made caterpillar costumes, and we had a ‘Very Hungry Caterpillar’ theme.
The language of Maths
Students enjoy playing games to help learn the vocabulary of mathematics. We use blocks and counters to solve addition and subtraction problems.
We created beautiful paintings of wattle and learnt all about the native Australian plant.
Netball Excursion at Wangala
Excursion to Serendip Sanctuary
'Wildlife Exposure' Incursion
As part of our topic on Australian Life, our GELC centres were visited by ‘Wildlife Exposure’ and encounterd many amazing Australian animals. Some students were brave enough to hold some of the animals.
Guided Reading and Writing
We are reading a book about dogs in our Guided Reading group. We have learnt many facts about dogs and can read many sight words.
