What’s Happening in Term 2, 2017?
In Term 2, the Intermediate classes we be learning about Australia by looking at maps. There are many different types of maps - maps that show state boarders, maps that show geographical features like mountains, lakes and rivers, maps that show climate and land use and maps that show population distribution. In Targeted Maths lessons, the classes will be focussing on extending and building upon the students knowledge of addition in simple and complex equations and applying these skills to real life situations. In Science classes we will complete lessons learning about different materials and why some materials are more appropriate for specific uses and jobs.
Term 2 will also be the time when NAPLAN assessments will take place. In Week 4 of the term, Year 3 students will complete national test in writing, spelling, literacy and mathematics. In Week 6, we will hold Science /STEM Week activities across the school and have an open evening for families to come along and participate. Finally in Week 10, we will be heading off to camps in Warburton to attend the amazing Arrabri Lodge. This is an adventure camp and students will complete a range of hands on activities that inspire and challenge children to try and do their best.
We look forward to a terrific couple of months, learning and working together.
