Term Two in Prep

 

 We had such an amazing first term with our Preps and are very proud of how well they've settled into school. It's been so great to see them happy and enjoying learning so much. 

 

Literacy 

This term in Reading, the students are beginning to learn comprehension strategies such as predicting, making connections, retelling the story and reading with fluency and expression. We will also continue to revise and practise the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make. We are beginning to sound out small words in books and use our sight word knowledge to read more fluently. In Writing, we are learning how to write short sentences including CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) words and some sight words (golden, blue and red words). E.g. The cat is on the mat. The students are learning to always include finger spaces between words, a capital letter at the beginning and a full stop at the end of sentences. They also beginning to write recounts about their weekends.

 

Numeracy

This term in Number and Algebra, the Prep students are continuing to learn about numbers to 10 and are progressing to learn about numbers to 20. They will learn how to value these numbers using different materials including counters, MAB blocks, unifix and ten frames. They are also learning to order these numbers and to count forwards and backwards from different starting points. In measurement, we are practising the order of the days of the week and are learning to connect these days with words like today, tomorrow and yesterday. We are learning about the vocabulary to describe measurement such as big/small, long/short, full/empty and are learning about measurement through inquiry.


Integrated topic- Keeping Ourselves Safe

This term we are learning about different ways to keep ourselves safe. We will also learn more about managing our emotions. We will also have some special incursions involving visits from our local services including the CFA, local crossing officer and St. John’s Ambulance. The students love hearing from our community members and enjoy the activities we do with them.
