Maths Activities

On Monday in maths we worked with a partner to roll and collect linking cubes. This was helping us to work on our one to one correspondence. We rolled a dice and then collected that many linking cubes and made these into a tower. Once we both had a tower we placed them side by side and used comparative language and our explanation sticks to compare whether our tower was shorter than or taller than our partners.

After we finished our 5 turns, we sorted our linking cubes into groups by matching all the same colours. We then made a train, which we drew into our maths books and recorded the number of carriages there were for each colour.

We had lots of fun! Check out our learning by watching the slideshow below.

Today in Maths we learnt a new game, it was called Super Tens. We set our tables up with a game board each and a dice, grip mat and coloured matchsticks between two. The aim was to collect the ten strands of coloured hair (matchsticks) for our Super Boy/Girl. We took turns to roll a dice and collect that many strands of hair. Once someone had collected all ten strands they were the winner and we played again.

Check it out in the photos below.

Think about the lolly jar game, the monster match game and super tens.

Easter Bonnets

Today we made special Easter Hats using craft materials.

After we were finished making our hats all of the preps gathered in Prep C and D’s rooms to have an Easter Hat parade. It was so much fun parading our hats and seeing all the other fabulous hats!

Have a look at our slideshow where you will see us creating our bonnets.

Then have a look at our video where you will be able to watch us showing our hats off to the other prep children.

Families are Fabulous

This term our Inquiry unit has been based on our families. Throughout our show and tell each week children have had the chance to share pictures of both their immediate and extended family as well as sharing information and pictures about their pets.

We have also spoken about various family celebrations and which ones children enjoy the most.

Have a look at our slideshow below.

Late last week we talked about some of the things we loved about our families. Children drew pictures to show what they loved most about their mummies and daddies.
