Term 2 - Welcome Back 4CL!

 

 

 

Welcome back to Term 2! We hope everyone enjoyed their holidays. Already this term, students have participated in a First Aid Incursion and we will be having other visitors including the Dental Van and Koori Educators.  Our weekly schedule remains the same as follows:

 

Weekly Schedule:

 

 

 

Tuesdays:                 Library (library bag required)

 

Wednesdays:          Art with Mrs Sally Fay

 

Thursdays:              Physical Education with Mrs Sarah Deveny (sneakers required)

 

                                    Homework due

 

Fridays:                     Assembly (3:00pm)

 

 

 

Inquiry

 

Our Science Inquiry topic this term is ‘Chemical Science – Package It Better!’ which links to the Victorian Curriculum descriptor ‘Natural and processed materials have a range of physical properties; these properties can influence their use (VCSSU060)’.  We will be examining different types of product packaging and students will be completing a packaging research project for homework over a period of 4 weeks. 

 

 

 

Digital Technology and Seesaw

 

This term we are introducing Edison Robots into our coding lessons while continuing to develop our digital technology skills using Laptops, iPads and Dash & Dots.  By the end of this term we will be endeavouring to have Seesaw available for parents to view the various tasks that your child is working on at school. 

 

 

 

Homework

 

Students have done a great job with their homework and reading in Term 1!   Just a reminder that homework is given on a Friday and due back on the following Thursday.  It is expected that students read at least 1 hour a week.  Please ensure your child is filling in the time in his/her diary and sign their diary and homework once completed.
