Term 1 - Me and My Community
Our preps have plenty to say about themselves and in this unit we use this knowledge to teach about their place in a community.
They explore who they are as individuals and learners. They learn terminology to describe the people in their family and how they are related to each other. They will discuss family traditions, celebrations and how significant events are commemorated. The children will record these events through class books, (baby, school, family, grandparents/special friends) drawings and collages. A Grandparents and Special Friends day will be held where oral histories and baby photographs will be shared. Students will be encouraged to discuss events which are significant to them. They identify their own unique characteristics and those they shared with others.
