Our Phonics Song!

This is our "Ants On the Apple" song that we listen to most days to help reinforce the sound each individual letter makes. It is very catchy and helps the students learn the sound and letter correspondence.

Writing Numbers!

We have been learning how to write numbers using the correct starting position and formation! This is a YouTube video we watched to help remind us where to start and how to form them! 
We then went outside to write numbers 0-9 lots of times using chalk!

Our Shape People!

In Prep A, we have been learning about all sorts of 2D shapes.
To help us remember the names of shapes as well as how many sides and corners they have, we made "Shape People" using the same shape - just lots of different sizes!

Check them out and let us know what you think of our shapes!

St Mary's 4 B's!

At St Mary's we have "The 4 B's" which are our school goals for positive behaviour.
They are:
Be Friendly
Be Safe
Be Respectful
Be a Listener

We made our very own 4 B's to remind us what they are! In Prep A, we are already very good at understanding and showing what it means to follow the 4 B's. Prep A Parents, you might like to talk to your prep person about them and comment on our blog about what we have learnt!

Today we were focussing on writing numerals 0 to 5 using the correct starting point and formation.
We began by singing "5 Little Speckled Frogs" and had some students use finger puppets to join in with the song! They were so cute!

We then practiced writing numerals 0-5 on the whiteboard and went off to complete an activity sheet independently.
