Week 3 and 4

What are busy couple of weeks we have had! We had a fantastic day last Friday celebrating our 100th day of school with lots of activities and delicious food for our party. Thank you to all families who contributed a treat to share with all 3 prep classes. Luckily the disco was organised for the same night so the children were able to dance the night away and use up some of their energy! It was great to see so many prep children having a fun with their friends at the disco and lots of parent helpers.

Last week we had our excursion to the Collingwood Children’s Farm where we were able to see and feed some of the beautiful animals. This week we also had a visit from the Wild Action Zoo where students were able to get up close to some fascinating creatures like a crocodile, snake, and an owl (photos to follow soon)! They thoroughly enjoyed the experience and learnt some interesting facts about each animal. We are loving learning about animals in our world and things they need to survive!

Last week our letter of the week was ‘p’ and this week we have been learning about the letter ‘k’. We have been continuing with some personal writing and our “VIP” letters. This week in buddies we have been working on an animal project where students choose an animal, draw and label a diagram of it, and write facts they know about this animal. This project will continue over the remainder of the term during buddies.

    Hello Preps!

    It sounds like you are having a lot of fun learning about animals! I like animals too! My favourite animal is cat. What is your favourite animal?

    Did you enjoy being up close to all those animals that came? I know I would of. Did you learn a lot about the different animals of the wild?

    I hope that all of you continue to have fun learning about animals.

    It looks like the Preps have been doing a lot of work during class. Working with the buddies in the buddies session has been fun. I can’t wait to start the diaramas with the preps.
