TERM THREE IN PREP

 

 We had such a fantastic first half of the year in Prep with the children settling into school and becoming confident in the classroom and outside in the yard. It has been great to see the children making new friends and learning so much! 

 

Literacy 

This term in Reading, the students will continue 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 becoming more confident when reading and will continue practise sounding out words, recognising sight words and answering questions about the books we read. In Writing, we are writing sentences about personal experiences and remembering to include finger spaces between words, a capital letter at the beginning and a full stop at the end of sentences. This term we will get to meet our class ‘Show & Tell’ teddies who will get to spend some time at each child’s home and we look forward to hearing all the adventures they go on!

 

Numeracy

This term in Number and Algebra, the Prep children continue to build on their understanding of numbers to 20 and then beyond. We will begin to solve addition and subtraction problems and learn a range of strategies to do this, such as; friends of ten, counting on, counting all using counters. We are learning to describe measurement such as big/small, long/short, full/empty and are learning about measurement through inquiry. We will also collect data from our classmates and show our findings in a picture graph.

 

Integrated topic – Our Community

This term we are learning about our community. This begins with learning about our family and we get to celebrate our families with a Grandparent’s Day on Friday 10th August. The children will then learn more about their school community and then the local community of Frankston and surrounds. We will investigate what makes our community special and go exploring on our Prep ‘Big Day Out’ excursion.
