Level 2 Newsletter - Week 1


Term 4 2015

Welcome back to Term 4 from your (hopefully) relaxing holidays. It is great seeing everyone back, excited and ready to go for another action-packed term. Welcome back to Noela Unwin who has returned from her wonderful overseas trip. I'm sure everyone is excited to have Noela back and to hear all about her adventures. Special thanks to Rachael Barratt for stepping in for 1/2U and doing a fantastic job.

This Term our Unit of Study aims to develop childrens' critical thinking skills using 'Wonderland' as an exploratory base. You may have noticed the teachers dressed up as characters from Alice in Wonderland and doorways with some decorations to spark creativity. 
We have discussed what Wonderland means to each person and have begun designs to decorate our rooms to create our own Wonderlands.
