So far in Term 2, we have been focusing on writing Narratives: Characters, Setting and events- beginning ( introduction), middle (problem) and end (solution). Lots of our reading activities are about character analysis, paint a character, readers theatre, retelling the story, puppet talks, and others. As per children’s needs, they have been doing activities, so go to their group’s page for more details.

Prep- 3 Inquiry Theme : Change Over Time

This term the inquiry topic is CHNGE OVER TIME.  At the start, children had immersions into different areas where they could notice change over time i.e. Entertainment, Education, Fashion and Technology. After that, they came up with some wonderings and inquiry questions that they would like to investigate further. Next, they were grouped into similar wonderings and now in differnt Prep-3 groups though their English, Maths, Religion groups remain the same.

My group is focusing on how enetrtainment has changed over time? Ask your child if you need to see the teacher what’s their investigation area out of:

Elizabeth: Education

Sushma: Entertainment

Carla: Fashion

Courtney: Technology



Welcome Back!!!!!!

Term 2, 2013

Hi Everyone,

This term our leaning group is visiting Wyndham Vale library every wednesday aftenoon straight after PMP. They are having fun going to library. Children go to library and read a book independently or listen to a story read by librarian or the teacher. By visiting to Library, they learn that library is a quiet place to read and alos,they can borrow books from library and return them when finished as these books are shared by our community.

Please note that they certainly can bring their library cards with them on wednesday and borrow 2 or 3 books from library to read. Please remeber to return before it’s due.

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to 2013 Sushma’s Prep/1 learning group to our blog!!!! I would like to say a huge WELL DONE to my group for making such a wonderful start to the school year.I am looking forward to a great year of learning.

At the start of the day, we got together with Prep-3 children to introduce all the new children and staff members of our learning centre. Next after recess, we had a walk through the school today to meet all the teachers and students in our school in both learning centres and also to get familiar with the school environment. At the end of the day after lunch, we had developmental play time as play is essential to development and it contributes to the cognitive, social, physical and emotional well-being of the children.
