This term in Pre-primary we have been focusing on our writing. As a result, we have created some amazing personal recounts and narratives influenced by the world around us.

We use icon prompts, provided by the North East Metro Language Development Centre, to support and structure our writing and draw inspiration from pictures, stories and experiences.

A Boy, a Dog and a Frog Oral Retell

To help support our written narratives we have been practicing our oral story creations. Looking at a book without any words we told our own version of the story and recorded it so we could hear it back.

Story 2

Story 3

The Butterfly Story!

We were very lucky this term to have a wonderful local artist (and parent, thanks Jane) come in and illustrate a whole class narrative as it was told. We later used this picture to encourage our own narrative writing.

What I Like to do at School Recount

Looking at pictures of our class playing in the playground helped us to think about what we like to do at school.

B’Tutta Recount

A few weeks ago we were very lucky to have the percussion group B’Tutta come and visit our school. After the performance we wrote a recount of what happened. Here is some examples of our pictures and drawing of the event.
