Term 3 Begins!

We have made a flying start to Term 3 in Prep over our first 2 weeks. Firstly, we have to congratulate the prep students on their amazing presentations of their learning during our Three Way Conferences this week! We were astounded at their ability to articulate their learning progress and experiences. This was a great night that really emphasised the team effort in supporting our fabulous preps in their education – with the students themselves as leaders of their own learning! Our topic this term is “Our World of Animals”. We will be putting on our ‘scientist hats’ as we investigate and explore animals in different environments. This term will see the preps sorting and classifying animals, using their senses and recording their observations of animals, and investigating the needs of animals for survival in different habitats. This will include some great hands-on experiences including the Collingwood Children’s Farm on Wednesday, and the Wild Action Zoo incursion in Week 4. Our literacy learning continues, with our first 2 weeks looking at the letters ‘r’ and ‘n’. We have started weekly personal writing, where students make choices about what type of writing to do, exploring text types such as story writing, recipes, recount of events, writing jokes, lists and information about topics of interest. We have also started the V.I.P. (Very Important Prep) of the week in each class. Students each write a letter to the V.I.P. telling them why they are special. By the end of the year, each prep will get to bring home a beautiful book of the letters to share with you. We have been exploring different materials and strategies that we can use to measure and compare length over the last 2 weeks in maths, and will continue to work on our counting and number skills over the next few weeks. As always, we appreciate all your support. Keep checking those satchels for notes for the many activities coming up – the 100th day of school party and school disco for next Friday, just to name a couple!
