Welcome to 2018 where everyone is talking about how we will be SOARING TO SUCCESS!
Click below for the Term 2 Letter – information about everything we are learning this term, upcoming events and general things to keep in mind for this term.
We’re going on an EXCURSION to Trevena Glen Farm on Tuesday 8th May! We are after some parent volunteers (you need to have already completed the BCE mandatory training for volunteers – available via the parent portal).
We have been reading The Cat in the Hat by Dr Seuss. Today we looked at the pages where The Cat is balancing all of the different items and we wondered what else might the cat balance? Then we had a go at balancing items ourselves! After that we came back to class to write about our experiences.
This week Prep students have been given a ‘Sounds and Sight Words’ book to help them revise and remember letter sounds and sight words. Everyone will begin with 13 basic letter sounds to start with. They have been cut out for your convenience. See the instructional video below to know how to revise the sounds and track your child’s progress. New letter sounds or sight word sets will be given when students have mastered the previous set.
Wanting to know what we are learning in Prep in Term 1? Check out our PREP TERM 1 LETTER! It also contains information about ‘active learning’, homework and upcoming events.
