Gamma 3/4

Hi all and welcome to Term 3. Just a quick rundown of the term ahead.

Curriculum

 

Homework - Will commence week 3. Later in the term I will send out information regarding a project the children will need to complete at home. The project will run parallel to the geography unit, ‘Australia's Neighbours'.

 

Geography - Australia's Neighbour. The study of Australia's neighbouring countries, cultures and flora and fauna.

 

History - Explorers Global - studied during Library time.

 

Science - Light & Dark with Mrs Webb

 

Writing - Informative Texts - Reports and Explanations

 

Reading groups  - There have been some small adjustments to our groups. Please chat with your child about whether they have had any changes.

 

Maths -

 

CAPA: Beauty & Beast - Rehearsals Tuesday & Thursday  afternoon 2.10-3.10pm split into 2 groups of singing and dancing.

No other CAPA this term.

 

PDHPE  - For PE the students are participating in a school wide gymnastics program being delivered by the Activated Group. In PDH we will be covering Child Protection in Term 3. Sport will see a return to a weekly rotation of modified games.  

 

Gamma is also lucky to have Kristy Jackson on a teaching prac. Kristy is studying with Swinburne University and will be working in Gamma every Wednesday. From week 6 onwards Kristy will be in Gamma fulltime. We look forward to working together.

 

Looking forward to a productive term!
