Week 3 is coming to an end and it has been nothing short of e/x/cellent
The biggest discovery of the week took place when some pesky pirates sent all of the Prep grades on a treasure hunt where all the students quickly learned that not only did /x/ mark the spot but so did /ks/. That sort of stuff wasn’t tricking the preps of L.P.S.
Our maths lessons saw the students practicing the concept of addition. Students verbalised that when you add something to something else, it gets bigger. Once this was realised students there was an abundance of addition stories that validated the students understanding. Mr Mac’s personal favourite was, “Richmond kicked 12 goals and the Kangaroos kicked 9 goals. All together 21 goals were kicked.” No bias!
Week 4 could quite possibly be the busiest and most exciting week of 2016 so far.
All Grades are getting extremely excited for 100 Days of Prep which is taking place on Wednesday 3rd of August.
Please remember to wear your /p/ costume on Wednesday. We will be having our parade soon after 9am and would love to see parents and friends there. We always love an audience!
Please don’t forget to bring a plate of food to share for lunch. Students do not need to bring normal lunches, but will need to bring their own snack and drink bottle as usual.
If any parents are able to assist in helping set up lunch at 12:30 it would be much appreciated. Please let your classroom teacher know if you are able to help.
And to add to an already amazing week on Friday 5th of August we are having a special whole school Olympic Assembly to celebrate the opening of the games, beginning at 2pm in the hall.
Each class has been assigned a country to represent and dress up as. We would love the Preps to wear the colours of their assigned country, however, please do not buy anything new! We will be making flags and props in class, so if you could just wear the colours of your country’s flag, that would be great.
Prep D are representing Indonesia. The Indonesian flag colours are: Red and White
Prep S are representing Egypt. The Egyptian flag colours are: Red, White, Black and Yellow
Prep M are representing Malaysia. The Malaysian flag colours are Blue, White, Red and Yellow
Prep K are representing South Africa. The South African flag colours are Black, Yellow, White, Red, Green and Blue.
Prep P are representing Hong Kong. The colours of the Hong Kong flag are White and Red.
It will be a perfect week in prep, with parades, pictures, princess, pirates, Pokémon and a little bit of pandemonium.
Have a lovely weekend!
The Prep Team
