In Term 1, Years 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 students at NMPS will continue learning Auslan as an additional language.

This term the focus will be on continuing to build their conversational skills and how to use them in context. Students will also learn about customs and protocols that exist within the Auslan language as well as the Deaf community.

We have a strong focus this term on learning to perform the National Anthem of Australia using Auslan. The aim is to have classes performing at assemblies while the whole school sings the National Anthem.

Students will be introduced to new vocabulary as part of building on old units and introducing new units such as;

  • Weather
  • Family
  • Hobbies
  • Animals
  • Clothes
  • People

As always, students will continue to build their fluency in signing the fingerspelled alphabet as well as numbers.
