Save the Gorillas Please!


Posted by missdouglas | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on September 2, 2015

Prep A and Prep B need your help to save the gorillas. People are chopping down all of their trees to get the rocks (coltan & tantalum). These rocks are used to make our mobile phones.

We want to stop the people chopping down the trees and keep the gorillas alive. We don’t want the gorillas to be extinct.


If you have an old phone, bring it to school (or the Melbourne Zoo) we will recycle the phones. This will stop the gorilla habitat from being chopped down. Bring your old phone to the Gorilla Box at the Office.

Thank you for your help.

Drug Education Rotation Day


Posted by missdouglas | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on August 12, 2015

Today we participated in a rotation day to learnt about how to be safe. We spent a session with each Prep teacher learning about a different aspect of safety and drug education.

In room 1 we learnt about stranger danger and who we can ask if we need help. In room 2 we learnt about syringe and needle safety. In room 3 we learnt about medicine safety. In room 4 we learnt about 000 and emergencies.

At the end of the day we did a reflection and talked about what we learnt and ‘what stuck with us’.

Here are our responses:

Archie – how to get help if you see a stranger

Ilija – when there is a fire you call the fireman – 000

Douglas – there is an emergency number – 000

Kody – to call 000 if there is an emergency

Maya N – if we find something that is dangerous we don’t touch it, we go and find an adult

Maya W – not to go near a needle, lots of people think it is just a texts

Isabella M – do not touch other people’s medicine

Lincoln – how to be safe around needles

Ella – some medicine is dangerous

Mansehaj – don’t touch anyone’s medicine

Amelia – if we stuck somewhere we call the police to help us – 000

Luca – firemen can help you put out fires – call 000

Samuel – don’t take other people’s medicine

Willow – if you find a needles, don’t pick it up. Find a parent to help.

Missing Tooth


Posted by missdouglas | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on April 29, 2015

Last week while I was on 5/6 camp someone in the class lost their tooth and the teacher found it on the floor.

I have spent the last few days asking the students but no one knows who it belongs to.

If your child has lost their tooth and didn’t bring the tooth home please come and see me as I still have it.

Morning Community Circle


Posted by missdouglas | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on February 12, 2015

Sorry it has been so long between posts. We have learning so much that I have had time to write a post.

Each morning our class (and all classes in the school) take part in a Community Circle. The Community Circle aims to prepare the students for the day and develop their oral language skills.

Within the Community Circle we discuss the events of the day, revise what we learnt the day prior, complete our daily calendar and go around the circle giving each student the opportunity to share (based on a question or topic posed by the teacher).

In Prep, we are also learning the days of the week and months of the year. We generally do this by singing songs – which I have posted below for you to practise at home.

Welcome to Prep B’s Blog 2015


Posted by missdouglas | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on January 29, 2015

Hi everyone and welcome back to school. This blog will now be for the new Prep B but you are welcome to continue to visit and see what we are doing.

Wow! Yesterday was our first day of school and what an amazing day we had!

Everyone was brave and excited and took the big step to come into our classroom ready to learn. We are going to have a great year and become lifelong learners.

We played some games and had fun making new friends. We also learnt about our Rights and Responsibilities inside and outside the classroom. We traced letters, coloured in, glued squares and even learnt how to use our whole body to listen. By the end of the day everyone was a bit tired but I was so proud of every single person! What superstars!

I am looking forward to a great year ahead!

Miss Douglas 🙂
