Drawing on the history of Sub Base Platypus in North Sydney, our worksheets combine Early Stage 1 and Stage 1 English and Science & Technology Outcomes with a light colouring-in activity.
The easy-but-rewarding sheets encourage students to read with their carers, investigate an image, and discover information about a submarine and/or platypus. They are available to download here:
We are excited to offer these worksheets at this time and hope this activity can add to your class’s
learning experience during the lockdown period. Please find the NSW Syllabus and Australian Curriculum Outcomes for this activity in the teacher's information pack below:
The release of the worksheets coincides with a colouring-in competition, with Early Stage 1 and Stage 1 students invited to enter either their coloured-in platypus or submarine.
The winning artworks will be displayed at Sub Base Platypus during construction works for the Torpedo Factory Renewal Project. All competition entries will be published on the Harbour Trust website.
If students wish to enter the competition, their carer can take a photo of their image and email it to email@example.com together with their FIRST NAME, AGE and SCHOOL as well as their carer’s name and email.
The competition closes on Friday 8 October. View our teacher's information pack (page 3) for further details. Have any questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
