Over two weeks the Preps had a wonderful time exploring many of the WONDERFUL titles that were selected as part of the Children’s Book of the Year Awards. Some of our favourites were: The Swap, Kissed By the Moon, Silver Buttons and The Windy Farm.

As part of the celebrations all the children at St Luke’s dressed up as one of their favourite book characters.

Maths is FUN!

The Prep children have been learning about the many strategies we can use when subtracting. We used Tiny Teddies to help us count back. Of course we had to eat them to make sure that our answers were correct. YUM!!!

Crawl down low and GO, GO, GO!

Fire fighters from Box Hill came to visit our school. We learnt about how to stay safe if there is a fire and acted out the things we need to do.
STOP, DROP, COVER, ROLL and CRAWL DOWN LOW and GO, GO, GO!
Then we got to hop in the fire truck. It was a long way up and a long way down. We climbed over a ladder carefully and then finally…we got to squirt the hose. It was lots of fun!!!
Thanks to all of the fire fighters who help keep us safe.
