Word of the Week: ‘bed’

For language experience and to link into our SMART spelling program the Preps took part in a STEM challenge where they had to build a bed for our word of the week. STEM challenges are designed to develop students problem solving skills, to build resilience and to develop risk taking.

STEM Challenge: create a bed                     Materials: pop sticks, 4 pegs and masking tape

Here are some photos of P9 constructing their beds.

Prep Language Experience

As part of our weekly language experience students take part in making, creating or cooking something to help develop their topic specific vocabulary. This term we have been focusing on developing our vocabulary around our 5 senses: sight, touch, smell, taste and sound.

Here are some photos of P9 making Milo. For this activity they had to follow the procedure of how to make a milo and then came up with words to describe this experience. Some of the WOW words that P9 came up with were delicious, milky and sweet. Once students brainstormed WOW words as a class they then complete a writing response activity.
