Welcome to Shea K/pp 2022

Welcome to Shea Kindy and Pre-primary for 2022! This year your teacher will be Miss K with amazing help from Mrs Siebert (EA). We are super excited to watch your child learn and grow this year and work alongside families to create an amazing learning experience for all.  

Term Two Theme

This term, our class is ready to blast off into a new space theme!

We will be explore space during our literacy and maths as well as venturing into HASS as well. 

Over the holidays, our classroom became the local space station and the children have had so much fun planning trips into the unknown! 

Term two timetable 

Our Focus 

In PP, we are working on our letter sounds and working on writing them correctly. In maths we are exploring number to 20 and other fun topics like patterns. 

In Kindy, we are starting to dive into starting sounds of words we know as well as rhymes and songs. In maths, we are developing our numbers to 10 and joining the P's to explore simple patterns. 

Homework

In week 3, PP kids will begin practicing their learned phonics skills at home if they are assessed as ready both academically and emotionally. This is critical as we do not want to discourage students from being confident to read by overwhelming them. After assessment of skills, your child will bring home either a list of letters or a list of decodable words once a week.

 

In addition to the words list, children will have either a decodable reading book or continue with the comprehension reading books from term 1. Importantly, the decodable books have comprehension questions in the back that I encourage you to share with your child.

 

Homework in PP should be short, regular, repeated and enjoyable. Instructions for parents will accompany the letters and word lists.
