It has been a very busy week in the Prep-One room. Here are some reflections on our week…
In our writing we have been planning a story book. This makes some of us feel happy because we like writing. Some of us are excited to make a book because now we now know how to tell a story we can tell lots more.
We finished our heart maps, which most of us really enjoyed making. They show what we love. We are going to put these on the Great Wall of Awesome and use them to get ideas for our writing.
Molly, Rosie and Natalie have been selling rocks this week. Some people put on funny shows to get more people to buy rocks. All the money goes to the Parent’s Club and the guide Dogs. They raised a huge $44!
In Art we have been painting without paintbrushes. We have been using palette knives, pipettes and drinking straws and things from nature. It has been fun and exciting because we didn’t know we could paint without paintbrushes. Most of us love painting with a palette knife. We feel very creative.
In French we have been talking about to say ‘hello’ goodbye’ and ‘how are you feeling?’ in French. We are also learning how to introduce ourselves and where we live. French makes us excited because it is really fun.
Almost all the All-Stars really enjoyed this week.
What did you enjoy most this week at school?
Tell us one thing you are really proud of achieving this week.

When the weather in Malmsbury turned cold and stormy rather abruptly last term the Prep-One All Stars decided to test their writing skills and write some weather similes. There was a lot of discussion about how wet the rain might be and whether wind that is as wild as a tiger would be worse than wind as wild as a snake. Here are our finished weather poems.
What was your favourite weather simile?
How would you describe the weather?

Grade Prep/One have been showing off their writing expertise this week. We have been learning how to compare two things using similes and have been creating some great imagery in our writing sessions.
We started thinking about how we could describe an ice-cream…
Then we worked out ways to describe our favourite soft toys.
Then we had a go at writing our own.
What words would you use to describe your favourite toy?
What other things could we write similes about?

Today we have done some story writing. We have been voting on the names of the three teddies that are in our room. Some people felt happy about the names but other people felt a bit upset because their names didn’t get voted for. We also did some alphabet work. We got all the letters that start at the top, not at the bottom. These are letters in the ‘c’ family. We all felt good about our handwriting today. We also played the monkey game. This is a popcorn monkey game. We had to guess the word and push the button to give the monkey popcorn. There were different levels that we played.

Eliza’s lamb came to our school today. Eliza’s mum was giving it milk. It didn’t stop sucking it’s bottle until it was empty. It even kept sucking the bottle when it was empty. We patted it. We also saw a turtle pet today.
Today school was awesome. Today was a fun day for most of us.
