With a burst of creativity and compassion, our Prep students intricately coloured and crafted a stunning Sorry Day display in PLC, reflecting on Aboriginal cultures.
In a fun hands-on activity, our Prep students embraced the magic of gardening by planting grass seeds, carefully preparing the soil, sowing the seeds, watering them with love, and eagerly awaiting the growth of the lush green grass.
During our mathematics lessons, the preps have been embarking on an exciting journey of measurement. Armed with informal measuring tools like unifix blocks and teddy counters, our little learners have been discovering the world of length by measuring, recording and comparing various picture cards lengths.
During our MPPS Education Week open morning, prep students were delighted to engage in the mathematics game of Tenzi with their families. Laughter and excitement filled the room as the preppies eagerly rolled their die and used their super hero eyes to see numbers without counting. It was a heart warming sight to witness education and family bonding seamlessly intertwined in the classroom, creating lasting memories for both students and their families.
PLC are thrilled to share with you the success of our Darebin Creek incursion this week. The preps had the opportunity to learn about the importance of caring for our local creeks, rivers, and the diverse wildlife that depend on them. Through hands-on experiences and discussions, they gained valuable insights into the significance of picking up litter and contributing to the well-being of our natural environment.
