Who is in our community?

The Preps have been discussing our new Central Idea, ‘Everyone has a role in the community’. We talked about who is part of our local community, starting with ourselves, our families and our friends. We also talked about all the places we like to visit in our community and the people we meet around the community.

Over the past two weeks, the Preps have been discussing the role Lifeguards and Teachers have in our community. We have carefully watched what the Lifeguards do at the Waves Pool during our swimming lessons so we can write about them. We also talked about all the ways that Teachers help at school. The Preps have written creative stories to demonstrate their knowledge.

Mr Lifeguard

One afternoon a kid was running very fast. The Lifeguard said “Stop!”
Well the kid didn’t listen and he slipped. The Lifeguard called the other Lifeguards. The Lifeguard helped the kid and the Lifeguard checked the kid if he was alright.
“You’re not allowed to run” he said.
