On Friday when we went to the computer lab we used many skills that Mr. Callanan had taught us on Tuesday.

We had to use the mouse to colour some beautiful patterns and some people even made word finds.

The skills we use now during computer time and ipad time are quite phenomenal!

Let’s sing! 

In Performing Arts this term, the children have started rehearsing for the annual Christmas Carols at Domeney Park, on Sunday 7th December, from 6:30pm. The level song is ‘Feliz Navidad’ and the song to be performed with their buddies is ‘Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree’. The children are very excited and sound fantastic!

Stories about Jesus

We have been talking about the stories we know about Jesus. We made a chart with two columns and brainstormed all the stories we knew about Jesus and the stories Jesus told. We knew lots of stories about Jesus’ life. We have also been learning more about Jesus and also about the stories he told to teach people about how to love one another and love God. We read “The Loaves and the Fishes” and made a poster about it.

Problem solving

We have been working on problem solving in Mathematics. This is an example of one. We needed to follow the pattern on Grandma’s quilt so that we could reproduce the “Flying Geese” pattern. It was tricky but we had to flip, slide and turn to make our own small square of the pattern. Then we put it all together to see if we could make Grandma’s quilt! Look what happened!

Our Excursion to Healesville Sanctuary

On 30th October, the Preps all went to Healesville Sanctuary. We had an amazing time and learnt lots about the special, unique characteristics of Australian animals. As we walked around the sanctuary, we encountered keepers who talked to us about the different animals. We even saw two keepers taking the dingoes for a walk on leads! We all sat in the arena to watch the “Spirits of the Sky” show and we learnt about the importance of using toilet paper made from recycled paper so that we can protect the habitat of our amazing Australian birds and animals.
