Get­ting out and about

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Blue­bird four-year-old kinder­garten chil­dren were out and about in the lo­cal com­mu­nity last term.

‘‘The chil­dren have be­gun to de­velop an un­der­stand­ing of where they live, pro­fes­sion­als that help them in our com­mu­nity and, more im­por­tantly, that they be­long to our com­mu­nity,’’ teacher Carmel Free­stone said.

‘‘This term, one of our projects was pro­fes­sion­als in our com­mu­nity and each week chil­dren would choose a pro­fes­sion in our com­mu­nity that they would like to learn more about.

‘‘This al­lowed the chil­dren’s in­ter­ests and voice to drive our pro­gram,’’ she said.

The chil­dren had the chance to be­come bak­ers, milk cows, learn about mi­crochip­ping an­i­mals at the vet and even en­joyed a trip to the den­tist.

Down on the farm: The chil­dren vis­ited a lo­cal dairy farm and had the op­por­tu­nity to milk cows and learn about life on a farm.

Back to na­ture: The chil­dren got to ex­plore many of the area’s beau­ti­ful lo­cal en­vi­ron­ments.
