100 Days of Prep!

100 Days of Prep!

Our lovely preps have reached 100 Days of School! We enjoyed a special assembly on Friday celebrating all the learning and hard work they have been doing in their first 100 Days!

We started our assembly by singing some songs for everyone!

Then each student did a speech on what they have learnt and enjoyed in their first 100 days of school. Each student did such a fantastic job of speaking confidently! We are very proud!

SCIENCEWORKS! With Prep W & Prep G

SCIENCEWORKS! With Prep W & Prep G

066

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
  • Gravity
  • Materials
  • 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:

Exploring Capacity in Prep!

Exploring Capacity in Prep!

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!

The prep students have been having a fabulous time during ICT lessons on Thursdays with Ric!

We have been learning about the functions of all the buttons on the keyboard and have been practicing finding the letters quickly! We are getting faster each week! We have also been practicing using the mouse pad!

We have discussed how to act safely with laptops,  ensuring we are always responsible and careful with them.

We love ICT lessons and are super excited to keep practicing and improving our computer skills!

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.
