My Family

Category : Foundation , System

We have a great start to our My Family Unit this term!

We have started the unit with the students drawing and discussing who they live with in their homes. This gave the students the opportunity to talk about how their families are the same or different as well as tot talk about the different types of homes we all live in. Next week we will draw a family map which will help students to discuss their extended families. 

An important part of the Literacy Curriculum is speaking and listening. One of the ways that we support students to develop these skills in Prep is through show and tell. Because our focus this term has been My family the students have been asked to bring in a photo of their families and talk about them . Having a prompt for talking has helped the students to develop confidence about what they are sharing and also helps their audience to come up with some great questions

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!


Emergency Services Day

Our first dress up day was a great success. Many students dressed up as an emergency service worker and they looked great! We also had three special guests drop in and share some of the responsibilities and tools of their very important job.
