What’s happening in term 3, 2019?
We welcome Miss Andersson to the Senior area. Mr Van Breda is on long service leave for the remainder of the year so we were very fortunate to have Miss Andersson join our team. She has been a casual teacher at our school for over a year and comes highly recommended. We know the students in 4/5V are looking forward to getting to know Miss Andersson and the exciting learning tasks she brings with her.
This term we introduce the senior area to our new inquiry unit about electricity. Students will dissect technological products (safely) to explore how they function. They will also learn how energy from a variety of sources can be used to generate electricity such as solar, wind and geothermal. The students will explore how electrical circuits enable this energy to be transferred to another place, and then transformed into another form of energy to suit the needs of particular products. We are also looking forward to finalising our Term 2 unit with our Pop Up market held in late July.
Interschool sports begins week two and the children are looking forward to playing a new sport against other schools on Fridays. Please check the timetable for byes and remember sport tops are to be worn on Fridays.
From the Senior Team.
