All the Preps went on a fantastic excursion to SCIENCEWORKS!
As part of our ‘On The Move’ topic, we went along to further our understanding of:
- Forces, such as push and pull
- Toys, and how they move.
We enjoyed a special presentation of ‘The Toys & Forces Show’, presented by a very funny education officer who works at Scienceworks.
We then explored the ‘Ground Up’ exhibition, followed by the playground (after eating our lunch). Then we visited ‘Sportsworks’ and ‘Think Ahead’ exhibits.
Here are some photos:Read More »
During week 3 our Prep students were learning all about measuring capacity!
We discussed terms such as ‘full’, ’empty’ and ‘half empty’ and practiced measuring the capacity of a range of containers.
We predicted the capacity of containers, ordering them from least to most, then checked to see if we were right!
We used water, sand, rice and pasta! It was lots of fun!Read More »

The Preps have been having a wonderful time learning about coding this term!
We have been solving problems in pairs and working on directions together.
We need to follow specific steps to ensure the computer can understand the code we put in.
These lessons help us with our problem solving and computer language.
We will be very tech savvy when we grow up!

Prep W received a visit from Ranger Kim from the Philip Island Nature Park.
She spoke to us about how we can look after the environment, to protect our native animals.
We learnt a lot about Little Penguins, as well as other animals that live on and around Philip Island.
One student was lucky enough to dress up as Little Penguin.
We all got to take a book and a penguin jumper!
Some students also commented how they would like to be Penguin Rangers when they grow up!
Thanks for a wonderful incursion!Read More »
