Prep A & Prep W were incredibly lucky to have a visit from some special guests during the week.
We have been learning all about the weather in Term 4, and Minnie’s grandparents, Farmer Philip & Julie, payed us a visit to talk about why weather is so important to farmers.
They drove down from the country with a mother sheep and her 2 two week old twin lambs!
Farmer Philip & Farmer Julie brought the lambs in to the hall for us to look at.
Minnie and Archie had a turn at walking them around so the Preps could see them and pat them!
Then Farmer Philip answered all the Preps questions about farming, the weather and the lambs.
Ms Woodhouse even got to have a cuddle!
Belle Vue Primary would like to say a big thank-you to Farmer Philip & Farmer Julie for helping us to learn some more about the weather and for bringing along some of your farm animals. We loved it!Read More »
The Preps were lucky enough to have visit from Elke and her dog Oskar, who came in and taught us how to be safe around unfamiliar animals.
When we see an angry dog we should:
- Stand still
- Put our hands by our sides
- Be as quiet as a mouse
- Look at the ground.
Here we are practicing:
Then we did role playing, acting out different scenarios for when we meet unfamiliar dogs:
When we see a dog that looks friendly and we would like to pat it, these are the steps we should take:
- Walk up and stop in front of the dog and it’s owner (not too close)
- Ask the owner if it’s ok to pat their dog
- If they say yes, walk to the dog slowly
- Close your hand into a fist and let the dog sniff your hand
- Walk to the side of the dog, and have a pat!
Here are a lucky couple of Preps who got to pat Oskar:
Thank-you to Elke, Oskar and the Responsible Pet Ownership program.
We will definitely put these skills to good use!Read More »
To celebrate the end of term 3 all Belle Vue students had a disco in the hall. They had free dance opportunities, air guitar and limbo competitions, and even learned a new dance. Check out the photos of the children below to see how much they were having!Read More »

This term the Preps have been learning about Getting Along and team work! We have been working in teams to support and encourage each other when completing tasks.
We competed in 3 legged races, worked together to push team mates on wheelie boards and learned the importance of an end of activity handshake!
See the photos below!
It was heaps of fun and we learned some life long skills!Read More »
Prep W spent their maths session collecting data about their favourite colours.
Each student asked every classmate to choose a favourite colour out of the 4 they had selected.
We will then use this data to create a pictograph!
Great work everyone!Read More »

The Preps went on their first school excursion ever today.
They were super excited, even the bus ride was fun!
We checked out heaps of wonderful hands on exhibits!
We participated in ‘The Toys and Forces Show’ and learnt about push, pull and gravity!
Then the bus ride back was a little more subdued….
Thanks to everyone for a wonderful day! Thanks to the Preps for their enthusiasm and excellent behaviour, and a big thanks to James from Camp Australia and our two parent volunteers, Amanda and Caroline!
We can’t wait for our next excursion!Read More »
