Term 3 Overview

We would like to welcome you back after a restful and fun winter holiday. During the holidays there were a change, we have had installed new carpet. This is an exciting improvement to our classroom environment.

We also had a visitor from Africa. Ps. Fred Misaka, Principal of the Hope and Care Schools in Uganda came as part of a visit to Australia to collect the toy horses that Year 2 had created for his students. Unfortunately this visit fell in the holidays, although we were able to spend a day with him touring the school and local area.

 


Term 3 will see Year 2 study the themes "Systems of Transport" and "Push and Pull". The overarching theme is "Journeys" with a novel study on The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane and The Littlest Refuge by Ahn Do.

There is a lot of enthusiasm around these units of study so please don't hesitate to contact myself or Miss Lloyd about them.

Could we also make a request for a Mid-Year Stationery Top-up!!

Please ensure your child has these stationary items so the they are ready to learn at school this semester.
