Footy Day

Today is ‘Footy Day’. We had breakfast at school with our Dads because it is Father’s Day on Sunday. We wore our favourite team colours. In maths we explored our favourite teams. We made a tally to discover which team was most popular in Prep.

Then we made a “Live Graph” the represent our data

3D Shapes in Prep

In Prep we have been learning about three dimensional shapes – 3D. We looked for 3D shapes in the classroom. We found cylinders – candle, glue stick, crayon, cup, container, stamper and a string roll
