Using Blue-Bots to retell stories in Prep E

We have been learning how to retell stories. We need to remember the characters in the story, what happens to them and retell the story in the right sequence. We’ve been reading The Three Little Pigs so we used the Blue-Bots to help us retell what happened in that story.

Exploring ‘Identity’ in Prep E

In Prep E we have been learning about what makes us ‘unique’. We are unique on the inside and the outside.

We had a go at drawing some self-portraits to show what we look like on the outside. We helped each other remember all the parts of our faces and tried to use oil pastel colours that were close to what we look like.


We all like different things and have different things that are important to us. We made heart maps to show what we love and value.

Retelling stories in Prep E

For reading we have been working on retelling stories. We have to remember the characters and what happens in the story. We can use words from the story too!
