Play is a very important part of learning. During Developmental Play, students get to practice the skills we have been learning in class and often feel more confident to express their ideas. Working with their friends they learn to negotiate and how to listen to others ideas. They also use this time to work with new friends and learn to see the value in others. But most of all play is fun!
It has been a great start to Prep this year.
As well as learning about the routines of school and how to make new friends we have made a start with out literacy and numeracy subjects.
In writing today we had a go at drawing and writing a response to our science experiment!
In Numeracy we have been working on matching numerals to collections. This has led to some great discussions around which numbers are larger and the students have been using the language of more and less.
In our classrooms we have WOW work walls. These walls will show the amazing work that the students have been doing.
Wee look forward to seeing everyone at the Prep BBQ next week and the information session on the 27th
