In the last week of Term 1, the Preps participated in a language experience activity. Language experience activities involve planned, purposeful 'doing and talking' together, which is then followed by writing and reading about the experience. Also, language experience activities make visible the links between spoken and written language. A lot of talk takes place, and the children become aware that writing arises from oral language.
