It's Book Week! One World Many Stories.

Today we had a dress up day for Book Week. We came dressed as our favourite book characters. Here we are.....





Our Wonderful World

We are talking about how to look after the environment by recycling, reusing and reducing the amount of rubbish we make. Today the Preps were thinking about our wonderful world that God has created for us. We took photos of some of the gifts of creation around our school.
We were also practising our photography skills - remembering to hold the camera still, squeezing the button slowly, zooming in and out and taking a birdseye view.
We hope you enjoy our voicethread.

Quilting - a great way to reuse material.

We were very lucky to have a very special guest speaker come into the classroom last Wednesday to share with Prep S and Prep K. Will and Molly's mum came to show us a skill she learnt from her Grandmother. Genevieve showed us how to quilt and how quilting is a fantastic way to reuse old material to make a beautiful piece of family history.

It's PJ Day!

Today was PJ Day. We wore our pyjamas to school and brought a gold coin donation to help the homeless people in Melbourne.
We had toast with butter, honey, jam and vegemite. The toast was yummy, delicious and scrumptious! We also brought our favourite bedtime buddies. We introduced our buddies to our Prep friends.  
Here is our first Wallwisher telling you about PJ Day.
We are taking action that matters!



Here we are enjoying PJ Day.

REUSING! OLD INTO NEW!

We have been trying to think of ways to reuse everyday items to reduce the amount of rubbish we create. We want to look after our environment.
We took some old jars and created new and useful things to use at home.

We are also remembering to speak clearly and smoothly. Have a listen to see if you think we have done a good job!




What do you reuse to reduce rubbish?
Please share your ideas with us!
