Welcome back to Term 2 in 1S!
Term 2 is going to be another busy term for 1S with lots of interesting learning opportunities.
In English we will be looking at the concept ‘Point of View'. Students will be exploring rich texts and discussing stories from different points of view. We will be doing lots of persuasive, imaginative and informative writing based on our learning experiences from the rich texts.
Maths will continue to be hands on learning through the implementation of the TENs (Targeted Early Numeracy) program and our Stage 1 Mathematics program. Students can continue strengthening their number skills at home by using dice, packs of cards or dominos to build their quick recall of number facts.
Science has students exploring the unit Water Works. The Water works unit is an ideal way to link science with literacy in the classroom. This unit provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding of, and appreciation for, a precious natural resource. Through investigations, students explore how water is used, where water comes from and how to use it responsibly.
History this term will provide a study of present and past family life within the context of the students' own world. Students learn about similarities and differences in family life by comparing the present with the past. They begin to explore the links and the changes that occur, over time and they are introduced to the use of historical sources.
Please send your child's red folder to school each day in order for your child to participate in the Nightly Reading Program.
One change this term is that library borrowing will now be on Tuesday.
Our homework project for Term 2 will be sent home in Week 2 and will be a STEM based learning project.
I look forward to a productive and fun term of learning. Please speak to me if you have any queries or concerns. I am available before or after school in the 1S classroom.
Also stay up to date with all that's happening in 1S on our Class Dojo.
