Miss Hunichen is back again!! Another grade of Prep children. She is sooooo excited to be welcoming 22 new faces to New Gisborne Primary School and is looking forward to many new adventures. Explore our blog and get ready to meet the DELIGHTFUL children of Prep D. After exploring our blog please leave us a comment.
As part of our discussions about family and friends in the last few weeks the children were introduced to the format for an Acrostic Poem. We thought this would be a good way for children to express their feelings about their families and friends. The most challenging part of this task was to think of words that began with the letters in ‘friends’ and ‘family’. Even our parent helpers learnt something new as their child was exposed to this kind of poetry.
You’ll have to turn your head to the side to read these poems!
Over the last few weeks we have been talking about rules and responsibilities in our family homes. We read ‘It’s your turn Roger’ which was about a pig who didn’t want to set the tabel. We talked about what jobs the children help with at home and whether they get any pocket money for doing so. It was very interesting to see what the children helped do at home.
This week in grade one we are going to be learning all about friendly behaviours and how to make new friends. We are going to watch some Sesame St videos to help us, read some stories and talk about things good friends do and don’t do.
