Fall Field Trips!
Prekindergarten Visits the Fire Department
Prekindergarten took a field trip to Fire Station Headquarters, as part of our Community Helpers unit. The students got to see tools and trucks, sit in the trucks, try spraying the hose, and learn about a firefighter’s job. It was a very exciting day!
Kindergarten Apple Picking
Kindergarten had a great visit to Rocky Brook Orchard this week. We were able to pick from a wide variety of Apple types, and everyone quickly filled their bags. Back at school we used some of the apples we had picked to make apple pie. It was fun to use the apple peeling tool and also to mix up all the ingredients and put the pies together. But the most fun was enjoying all our work with a delicious treat!
Grade 3 Readers at the Newport Public Library
The third grade had a great trip to the Newport Library. They received library cards and learned how to use different resources for research. On their walk back to school they stopped by Bannisters Wharf and got a tour of Adix. They have been studying the history of Rhode Island and the importance of the boating industry to the Rhode Island economy.
