Today Grade 3 were really lucky to be joined Peran Rao, a parent within the grade to share his knowledge and expertise about Rubber. As we draw towards the end of our current unit ‘sustainable resource use protects the environment’ we have been reflecting on the journey so far and looked back at what sustainability means and looks like. Mr Rao, shared about the diverse use of the this material and also explained how the material is farmed and developed. The children had some brilliant ideas and asked excellent questions to deepen their own understanding.
We would like to thank Mr Rao for his time to come into the school and share his experiences with the children. It is incredible beneficial for our students to see how these materials are manufactured and used around the world.
As we move into the week, we will be looking into what action can be taken to reduce the consumption of finite resources and work towards living a more sustainable lifestyle.
Please note: Thursday 14th March is our field trip to Metro Forest (please see letter below).
Homework will be sent out today as usual and can be found on the homework link in this blog. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
