The Preps have been at school for 100 days! Can you believe it?

We held an amazing assembly to celebrate this wonderful day.

We started off the assembly singing some songs for everyone. We love singing!

Capacity with Prep W!

Capacity with Prep W!

The Preps have been learning all about capacity this week.

We’ve been enjoying lots of hands on activities, comparing the capacity of different containers and estimating the amount that they would hold.

Here we are predicting which one would hold more, out of two containers.

We tried our best to make our measurements accurate by filling one container all the way to the top.

Then we poured from one container to another to check.

The next day, we tried different activities such as ordering containers from holds least to holds most.
