Happy Holidays Prep E Families


Posted by mrsmoncrieff | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on September 22, 2017

Congratulations to Kaitlyn who won our Acknowledgement Award this term. Everyone in our class has been touched by her kindness and the lovely way that she offers to help and support her classmates. We wished Miss Farag a great teaching future today with a card and gifts from both Prep E and Prep C. We wish Xavier a fabulous birthday and we hope that everyone has a lovely break, enjoying some family time together!

A fair bit of monkey business!


Posted by mrsmoncrieff | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on September 21, 2017

Well there has been a fair bit of monkey business this week! Along with that there has been some footy fun as well, so here are some photos and a short video to enjoy. A big thank you to Vicki for helping with monkey and bird costumes and to all parents for supporting our School Concert and Footy Day celebrations. The children have had a lot to be excited about this week!


Hello Miss Farag and Concert reminders


Posted by mrsmoncrieff | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on September 19, 2017

Over the past 3 weeks we have been lucky to have Miss Caroline Farag in our classroom. She is a 4th year Monash student and has been previously at our school in Prep C. We have loved having her and will say goodbye on Friday this week. Miss Farag has supported us in many ways over the past month and we wish her much luck in her future teaching career.









We would just like to give you some last minute reminders about the Prep concert on Wednesday (tomorrow!)

  • On Wednesday the children will bring their costumes home in a named bag to wear back to school in full costume with hair and optional make-up done at 4.40pm ready to perform at 5.00pm. They are to meet in their classrooms. Please be on time.
  • The children need a pair of slip on shoes or slippers to wear over to the gym and can wear a dressing gown/coat to keep warm.
  • The children will NOT be dismissed from the gym, but will be walked back to their rooms to be collected by parents.
  • They will be removing the majority of their costumes so please allow for something to wear home if they are to remove pants and tops.

Looking forward to a super concert.


Tally marks and a market this week!


Posted by mrsmoncrieff | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on September 15, 2017

We have been learning all about collecting data and using tally marks so we had fun being human tally marks! Then we used tally marks with counters and even did a traffic survey! It was a little bit disappointing because we just counted 33 cars and no other vehicles! We have become experts at reading non-fiction texts and finding the “features” used to give us information, such as close u pictures, an index and contents page, labels and diagrams.

The Year 6 Market was amazing today, with the Preps showing they could manage their money very well. There were not too many “party tummies” and only a few “scared stiff” in the haunted house!


Reminders for Year 6 Market tomorrow


Posted by mrsmoncrieff | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on September 14, 2017

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the Year 6 Market. The children are able to wear free dress for a gold coin donation to the Luke Batty Foundation. Pre-ordered sausages will be eaten in our classrooms as per normal lunch, but sausages can still be purchased on the day.

Could children please bring their money to spend in a little wallet or purse. It is recommended that they bring no more than $10.00.

The market will be held indoors. We have been examining the posters around the school and we are looking forward to seeing what the Year 6 children have to sell.


Book Parade and Fun at the Ecopark


Posted by mrsmoncrieff | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on September 8, 2017

Thank you for the effort all of our families went to when creating such terrific costumes for our Book and Movie parade. We has a ball sharing our dress ups and talking about our characters. If you have a chance, check out the book we made on display outside the room! Thanks to Michelle Geddes for stepping in when Mrs Moncrieff’s phone was flat! We worked together this week to watch how we move across the play equipment at the Ecopark. Here is a video about our movement (our favourite was rolling down the grass hill!) and photos of our costumes. Well done to James for passing 200 nights of reading too! What a champ!

Week 8 Craft Power!


Posted by mrsmoncrieff | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on September 8, 2017

There has been so much happening this week we need several posts to include it all! Craftpower was so much fun, Anatoli was  a hilarious man! Thanks you to our parent helpers. We have painted our cars and will be using them for some science experiments over the coming weeks.


Happy Father’s Day

We hope that all the dads and grandpas had a terrific day today and everyone had a chance to spend some time with family. Here is a little video just to end your day!


Week 7 Antics!


Posted by mrsmoncrieff | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on September 3, 2017

We have been learning about non-fiction or “information” texts this week and we are having fun finding ways the authors show us information in these types of books. We have learnt about captions, diagrams, close up photos, sub headings and maps.








We have finished off our unit of work on subtraction by drawing our own number lines and solving some simple subtraction stories by “counting back”.


Congratulations to Beatrix for her amazing home reading and to the winners of the Sports Equipment for returning Jogathon donations. We have a prize for you too Erin and Cameron!

We have a request for parent helpers this Monday afternoon from 2.00 – 3.00 for our Craftpower incursion – if you are handy with a hammer! We also need a couple of parents to come with us to the Ecopark over the road after lunch on Thursday. Please let Mrs Moncrieff know or write your name on the list outside the room!

Capacity Play


Posted by mrsmoncrieff | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on August 31, 2017

What a beautiful afternoon to explore capacity! The challenge was to use two or three different capacity containers to build a tower or castle!
