Welcome to Term 4! We are so looking forward to having our Preps back on site in week 3 for staggered starts.
We will be focusing and settling our students back to school routine, as well as providing engaging learning experiences.
Our Science works work excursion has been cancelled due to Covid - 19. If the Department Guidelines change we will endeavour to organise an excursion to the Melbourne Zoo as an end of year celebration for the Preps.
In Inquiry, we will be focusing on Healthy Me (My Body Matters). This inquiry covers students learning about being healthy, safe and physically active.
In Reading, we will be focusing on decoding and comprehension strategies. We will also continue to work on letters/sounds, reading strategies and phonological awareness. We will be conducting Guided Reading groups based on student needs.
In Writing, we will be focusing on Recount writing and Narrative writing. We will also be continuing on with spelling for the students who have achieve all their sight word recognition. This will commence once face to face learning begins.
In Mathematics, we will be focusing on Division, Money, Time, Mass, Capacity, Length and 2D/3D shapes. We will also revise other learning areas based on student needs. Students will be able to continue to meet their individual learning needs via our lesson plans.
We look forward to lots of positive learning and being ready for Grade 1.
Please remember to name all of your child’s clothes, hats and belongings. We do our best to find lost items but this is time consuming and almost impossible if they have no label. We appreciate your support with this matter.
