Junior School Newsletter - Term 1, 2018 - Week 7

Term 1 2018, Week 7

After a shorter week due to Labour Day, the term is continuing to fly past us... but we are enjoying every day! Last week was our final Tri-Skills session and we will miss Will and Ryan's wonderful activities and challenging physical tasks, thank you to both of them for their enthusiasm. With Harmony Day approaching, we are preparing for a fun and insightful day. The message of Harmony Day is everyone belongs, and the day aims to engage people to participate in their community, respect cultural and religious diversity and foster a sense of belonging for everyone. We are really looking forward to next Wednesday and wish you all a safe and happy weekend.

In READING this fortnight, we have been learning how to make inferences using the clues in the text and getting a better understanding of how words work.

During WRITING this fortnight, we have been focusing on the components of a Recount (When, Who, Where, What) and the structure of a Narrative (Beginning, Middle, End - including a problem and a solution).

Our latest topics in MATHS have been Addition and Subtraction and how they work together to help us understand numbers.

This week we continued our INQUIRY topic by focusing on how we show kindness to others and identifying the emotions we feel when this happens.

Our focus in SPELLING is:
·         Grade 1: The graph /i/ in 'tin'.
·         Grade 2: The graph /a/ in 'banana'

The PITW key concept we have been focusing on this week is Treating Others The Way You Would Like to be Treated.

  • If you would like to volunteer in the classroom, please ensure the office has a copy of your Working With Children Check.
