Science Rotations


Wow! What a /z/ippy week we have had this week. The week has absolutely flown by and we are now past the halfway point in Term Three. Well done Preps!

We have been learning all about the /z/ sound this week and have found an array of words with this sound in it: bu/zz/, /z/ippy /z/ebra, Miss /Z/apantis, free/z/ing and /z/ero.

In Maths, we have continued our work on addition and also introduced Venn Diagrams to help us compare things. The Preps have created amazing addition problems on the iPad app “Doodle Buddy” and have used their part-part-whole knowledge to solve the problem. E.g.- 4 and 3 is 7.

This week is our third week of our Science Rotations and the Preps have been having an amazing time making moving toys. We have made toys that:

– Use a lever
– Spin

– Have a wheel and axle

– Use wind power

– Use push and pull

Check out the photos of the different toys that have been made.
