Emergent Project: Oceans and Continents

This week we have began the project of Oceans and Continents. We are learning about the importance of planet earth being the only planet with oxygen and air meaning humans can only live on planet earth. To introduce the project Jett has been assisting MS Nerissa with the presentation. Jett explains that trees only grow on planet earth and without the trees there would be no oxygen for humans to breathe in.

Ms Nerissa went on to introduce different topics of the continents that we may want to learn about. These topics were the people, the land & architecture, food, celebrations, animals, clothing and language. The children had a group discussion and wrote their name and topic they want to learn about.


The results were as follows: People – Jett, Stella, Kirra, Nevaya and Tane’

Land & architecture – Lachlan , Stella, David, Freya and Nate

Language – Summer, Harry and David

Animals – Lachlan, Oscar, Abby, Archer, Jacob, Bango, Niamh, Ashlee and Isaac

Food – Kirra, Summer, Madison and Mikayla

Clothing – Sophie, Anabelle and Madison

Weather – Anabelle, Oscar, Harry, Lachlan, David and Tane’
