Welcome to Term 2.
Secondary Transition Begins
As we head towards the end of the first semester, secondary transition will begin. We encourage families to arrange visits with your children to familiarise yourselves with the secondary settings. Research shows this supports an easier transition for students entering Year 7.
As with each term, for both Literacy and Numeracy students will be provided learning activities to build on/extend their current strengths and understandings.
Along with additional resources, we use the CAFÉ Reading Program, SoundWaves and Essential Numeracy to support our cycle of individualised assessment and goal setting for your child.
This term, students will be exploring our place in space and specifically the contribution of scientists and astronomers in the exploration of space, now and into the future.
Our literacy will begin with a focus on poetry and then continue as students hone their research skills and then delve into script writing. In numeracy, we make connections between the conversion of measurement units and decimal numbers. We will also investigate data collection and graphing.
You can assist your child by supporting their 5 nights a week reading, practising spelling words, knowledge of 'times tables,' and by helping them to develop their general knowledge through the discussion of world events, news and current affairs.
We welcome and encourage parent to contact us about your child's learning at any time. Please arrange a time to come in and share any information or queries with us.
