Welcome to Term 1, 2020!
Our year begins with getting to know each other both individually and as members of a group. Part of this process involves the selection of various leadership roles, including Student Government and School Captains. Following this exciting process, we begin our exploration into the world of ethical business and consumerism. This will culuminate in our own businesses as part of our Enterprise Showcase, which will kick off the School Fair weekend!
As with each term, for both Literacy and Numeracy students will be provided learning activities to build on/extend their current strengths and understandings. The CAFÉ Reading Program, SoundWaves and Essential Numeracy support our cycle of individualised assessment and goal setting for your child.
Our literacy will have stronger focus on persuasive texts, giving students the opportunity to sell their own ideas. In numeracy, our core work will include operating with different types of numbers, place value and the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Home Support - EVERY CHILD, EVERY NIGHT
You can assist your child by supporting their 5 nights a week reading, practising Soundwaves spelling online, 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.
