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!
On Monday, 20th August we will be celebrating Book Week. At assembly we will have our Book Week parade where students come dressed as their favourite character. Please start talking to your child about their outfit for Book Week. It is great if they can use clothes and props from home. We love the homemade variety!!
Following the assembly, students will be involved in cross-age art activities based on the short-listed books.
It promises to be a fun day for all!
On Wednesday we celebrated our 100th day of school. Some students dressed up as 100 year olds were very convincing. Throughout the day we did activities about the number 100, had a visit from the year 5/6 group and even had some cake to celebrate!
Here you will be able to keep in touch with some of the learning activities and events taking place in the Prep area. We will try to update the blog fortnightly and will post photos of the students in actions, our investigations and some examples of student work.
