The damage to the prep courtyard wall was a fantastic prompt for writing today.

The students came up with their own stories about what might have caused the damage.

  

On Sunday I saw a rhino riding a monster truck and the truck crashed into the wall.

I think that a giant whale crashed into the brick wall because she wanted to eat berries for her family dinner

One day 71 rhinoceros ran into the school and there was a crash and a bang and lots of bricks fell down the builders still haven’t finished the wall

On Sunday there were ten evil unicorns. They used their evil magic to blast a big hole in the wall.

They were angry because everyone thought they were cute!

A ghost began eating the school, then the sun began melting the ghost! Then a unicorn stood on the ghost.

Money Play

This week we have been exploring money during play. When you’re out shopping with your children encourage them to think about the cost of certain things and find appropriate coins when paying.

Here are a few other ideas for having fun with maths at home.

Parent Helpers!

We have been very lucky with all the wonderful parent helpers we have had so far this year and the students love seeing their family members in the learning space with them.

It is not too late to help out either with reading or with one of our upcoming excursions.

To help with these events you will need a working with children check, which you can apply for at http://www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au  and unfortunately, we can’t have younger siblings tag along.

As part of our inquiry unit we will be exploring our local area and will be going for a community walks on the morning of Monday the 22nd of October, we would love to have some parent helpers to come along and help us investigate our environment and the types of rubbish we find.

Prep B and C will bb 9:50 to 10:40 (just after assembly) and A will be 10:40 to 11:30.

Swimming runs from the 3rd of December to the 14th of December and we will need parent helpers to walk with us to and from the pool. We will know session times closer to the date but it is likely to be after lunch.

Please see one of the Prep teachers to sign up to help!
