The Pre Primary children have been immersed in our Fairytale unit this term.
We were inspired to build a castle in our shared role play area. The children collected lots of boxes from home and then had to plan, experiment and problem solve how to use the boxes to build a stable wall for our castle.
We needed lots of tape to make a stable wall structure
This is fun!
Unfortunately the rain and stormy weather one weekend proved that our structure was not stable enough to brave the elements!
Mr Searle came to our rescue, donating some large and strong boxes from his workplace.
We cut windows and painted bricks on our castle walls
We have made thrones for our King and Queen and have costumes for role play and dress ups in the Pre Primary Castle. Keep your eyes open and you may catch a glimpse of knights, wizards, witches, princes, princesses and fairies!
As part of our literacy focus we have letters/sounds that we learn about every week. One of our focus letters has been Bb. The book we chose for the letter Bb focus was Mr McGee and the Big Bag of Bread by Pamela Allen. Our class celebrated our learning by baking bread which we ate with butter and blackberry jam. It was delicious!

Our 100th day of school was a wonderful celebration that allowed us to look back at all the learning that has taken place so far and all that we have achieved over our 100 days in Pre-Primary.
We started our morning with a visit from Mrs Thuijs and Mr Munro who listened as we counted all the way to 100.
Then we completed our number and writing activities that were all linked with the number 100. We had a lovely day full of fun and laughter. It was a great celebration of learning!
