Merry Christmas!

Last Monday the Preps were very privileged to present the story of Jesus' birth at our assembly. They were amazing - so respectful and full of joy. We were very proud of them all!

Reuse! Reuse! Reuse!

This term we have been trying to reduce, reuse and recycle. We wanted to reuse an old glass jar to make something new and useful. 

We decided to make a Christmas lantern as a gift to our families. 

We are caring for the environment and reusing a glass jar to make something that is beautiful!

Here is how we did it: 

Take one old glass jar.

Decorate it with tissue paper in Christmas colours.

Tie a ribbon around the rim.

Place a tealight candle inside.

Decorate with small shiny gems and you have ...... one beautiful Christmas lantern!

Our Promises to care for the Environment

This term we have been learning about how we can care for the environment. To finish our unit we have thought about a personal action we can take to help reduce waste going to landfill, to reuse items and to recycle all the materials we can.

Our hope is that our families, friends and school community will support us and work with us to carry out our promises.

This term we have learnt that small actions can make a BIG difference to our environment.

Hint - you can press pause on the slideshow to read each promise.

Collaborating in Maths - Subtraction

Last Friday the Preps were very lucky to have a Maths session with the Junior students. They wanted to teach us about Subtraction. Each Junior student had made a poster showing their understanding of what subtraction is. Mrs Klein and Tom showed us a new game on the IWB using a number line. You could use addition or subtraction to play the game. 

Then we broke up into small groups with Preps, Grade Ones and Grade Twos to play lots of subtraction games. 

It was wonderful to see the Preps learning with the Juniors and to see how supportive the Juniors were. The Preps were so excited to learn new games and practise their skills in Maths. Well done everyone and a big thank you to Mrs Klein for a great idea and for all your organisation.

Fire Education

Today we had a second visit from the Firefighters. We were allowed to sit in the fire truck and hold onto the fire hose and spray water. We have learnt many important messages about fire safety.

We learnt:

If you hear the smoke alarm

Crawl down low

If your clothes catch fire 


In an emergency call 000

Talk to your family about a safe meeting place in case of an emergency - the Firefighters suggested your letterbox is a good place to meet.

Our Rainbow!

We have created our wonderful rainbow made from lots of materials that would have gone to landfill. You can read about our action here. We are trying hard to reduce the amount of rubbish going to landfill and have created a beautiful piece of art.

Our Wonderful World!

As part of our inquiry this term we have made a video with messages about how all of us can care for the environment

We worked together in groups to think of our message, worked out the words we would say and collected the props we needed. 

Here is our video!

If you could send a message out to the world about caring for the environment, what would it be?
