To introduce our unit for term 2, ‘Our Sustainable World’ we were developing our curiosity about the sights, smells and tastes of different foods. We had so much fun popping popcorn kernels and using powerful adjectives to describe our experience.
Today we were immersed in an Easter language experience. We went on an Easter hunt around the PLC playground to seek and collect various Easter themed toys. We even had a special visitor leave us chocolate treats! Can you guess who it was?
At MPPS everyone is encouraged to pack a ‘nude food’ lunch box. Nude food is food that comes to school without disposable packaging such as extra plastic bags & wrappings, paper bags, cling wrap, foil etc. In PLC, we are continuing to learn about the importance of choosing healthy, rubbish free food for our lunches and snacks. It has been wonderful to see so many students and families taking the initiative to create a waste-free environment at MPPS.
Take a look at some of our waste-less lunch boxes! A waste-less, nude-food lunch box may include:
We are expanding our vocabulary related to sensory experiences through baking Easter cookies. We are learning new words including ‘ingredients’ and ‘utensils’. We are using interesting adjectives to describe the ingredients focusing on what they look, smell and feel like.

As the season has changed, we have been closely exploring the outdoor environment. We took a walk through the autumn air and collected interesting leaves of different shape and colour to make our own ‘leaf-pals’. We are expanding our vocabulary by learning new words such as fragrant, picturesque, tangerine and dazzling. We are using these interesting adjectives in our writing to describe the leaves focusing on what they look, smell and feel like.
Through the RACV Street Scene Program we were learning how to use different roads safely. We listened to a story about safe ways to walk near the road environment, role-played ‘Stop, Look, Listen & Think’, and practised holding hands and using different crossings through games.
