We had some wonderful prep parents come and speak to us about their important jobs including a police officer, a scientist, an engineer and a child psychologist.
Part of our unit was a wonderful excursion through Macleod and Heidelberg.
We went into each shop and talked to the shop owners in Macleod about what they do. The kids also visited the local kindergarten. We then caught the train altogether to Heidelberg and were escorted by a special 'Metro' train official named Peter. He had come to visit us beforehand to talk about safety on trains.
In Heidelberg, we wandered around in our small groups and spent time in more shops. Some groups went to the Police station while others got to walk around the Vet and see where they keep all the animals when they have had surgery.
It was a fantastic day and it is safe to say the kids slept well that night. Even Miss Truefeldt was exhausted after such a big day!
