The Preps have been learning about the cyclic nature of the seasons.

First we learnt about winter with our Year 6 buddies. We discussed the temperature and what clothes to wear in winter. Then we made our own snowflakes and created a special Winter picture.

 Next we talked about all the seasons together; Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn, and all the different things we see and do in each season. 

Then each Prep chose a country and wrote a weather report about that country. We presented the reports to each other and focused on using loud voices and making eye contact with the audience.

Finally, Mr Starling brought in his special skis and ski gear to show all the Preps. It was very exciting to see Matthew dress up in all of Mr Starling’s snow clothes!

Then the Preps either wrote something new they learnt about skiing or wrote a story about skiing.
