Foundation Year 2018

Welcome to Prep!

This year we have 5 Prep grades full of students eager to get a great start to their school life. There to provide the care and support that our our youngest students require are 4 amazing teachers; Mrs Kim Clarkson, Mrs Madeleine Darling, Miss Lucy Welsh and Mrs Meredith Hyams.

Living Things

Term Three is in full swing for the Preps, as we explore the big idea ‘seasons are a cycle that affect all living things’. The students have explored the various changes experienced with the changing of seasons and have enjoyed writing about their discoveries. In Maths, we have been investigating measurement, estimating the weight and capacity of different items and containers.

Alphabet Day

Wow! We are officially half way through Prep! Time flies when you’re having fun. Last week the Preps celebrated Alphabet Day, as they have now officially learnt every letter name and sound. We dressed up, danced, played games, had a scavenger hunt and parade to mark the occasion.
