Wexford Northern Bay College

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. 

Book Week

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.

ART

We created beautiful paintings of wattle and learnt all about the native Australian plant.

Netball Excursion at Wangala

We participated in a Netball excursion at Wangala. We learnt ho to throw, catch, pass, defend and say, “Here if you need!”
 

Excursion to Serendip Sanctuary

As part of our topic on Australian Life, we visited Serendip Sanctuary in Lara, to explore the Australian bush and observe animals in their natural environment. We had a picnic lunch and spent time with the students from Wangala and North Geelong Secondary.
 

'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.
