Year 1 Term 3 Newsletter

 Welcome back everyone!
Welcome also to Alyson Leete who is teaching 1ML for Semester 2.
Just to keep you up to date with what is happening this term.

Our Unit for Term 3 is “Where in the World is Victoria?”
 This is a Geography unit and the key Inquiry questions from the Victorian Curriculum are:
-What are places like? (landscape)
How and why are people connected to their place and other placesWhat makes a place special?
How can we care for places?

We will be using a range of non-fiction books and websites in Literacy and Inquiry to assist children to become more familiar with the features of non-fiction texts. Students will be studying Victoria and its place in Australia and the World. They will become familiar with landmarks and natural features of various places. Students will be required to research and complete a mini project at school.

        In Mathematics this term we will be developing the students’ knowledge of subtraction and extending their counting skills by looking at different skip counting patterns. We will also study length, mass and capacity during our measurement focus.

Students explored a range of historical artefacts and learnt about Cook’s historical voyages. During the visit, students also had the opportunity to explore all the interesting aspects of the garden including the miniature Tudor village, fountains, the conservatory and the scarred tree.

Year 3 First Fleeter Presentations

Year 3 students used their research skills to find details of a person who arrived in Australia on the First Fleet. They explored and considered what it would be like to have travelled on the First Fleet and wrote a letter home from their character explaining the conditions on the boat. Finally they made a creative presentation to their class to share their findings.  Our students were actively engaged in the task and many presented in some very creative costumes.

Grandparents Game Day

On Wednesday the 8th of June students in Year 1 had the opportunity to invite their grandparents to school for the afternoon. The students had previously learnt about how life has changed from their grandparents where they investigated how school, roles, toys and games have evolved overtime.

The grandparents spent time with the students in their classrooms to play games from the past such as, pick up sticks, elastics, hopscotch, quoits and marbles. The students were all very excited and happy to have their family at school. Below are some photos of the afternoon.
