Welcome back to school everyone. This week in the newsletter I wanted to share what we will be learning in the Auslan Classroom across the different year levels.

 

Years 1 & 2

Year 1 and 2 students will continue to develop their foundational conversation skills, using numbers, telling time, as well as fingerspelling skills. Year 1 students will continue with a project that we started in Term 1 about Animals, and learning new signs that go with this project. Year 1 & 2 students will be starting a new unit all about food. Year 2 students will be working on a class project to support this unit of work on food (similar to the project the Grade 1 students started with their animals unit). We will also, very excitedly, begin the very early stages of Arts Festival preparation. Introducing some key concepts to students surrounding their particular performance and the vocabulary they may require. As with every term we will continue through fun game activities to develop core Auslan skills such as eye-contact, facial expression, and handshapes.

 

Year 3 

Year 3 students will continue to develop their foundational conversation skills, using numbers, telling time, as well as fingerspelling skills. We will continue learning how to sign about school and the things we learn at school. Year 3 students will be starting a fun project that will be part of their unit learning about food and the signs associated. We will also, very excitedly, begin the very early stages of Arts Festival preparation. Introducing some key concepts to students surrounding their particular performance and the vocabulary they may require. As with every term, we will continue through fun game activities to develop core Auslan skills such as eye contact, facial expression, and handshapes.

 

Year 4-5 

Year 4 and 5 students will continue to develop their foundational conversation skills, using numbers, telling time, as well as fingerspelling skills. We will continue learning how to sign about school and the things we learn at school. Year 4 and 5 students will be learning about storytelling using Auslan and watching stories being told. We will also, very excitedly, begin the very early stages of Arts Festival preparation. Introducing some key concepts to students surrounding their particular performance and the vocabulary they may require. As with every term, we will continue through fun game activities to develop core Auslan skills such as eye contact, facial expression, and handshapes.

 

I am also very excited to announce that starting this week at assembly one class per week will be performing the National Anthem in Auslan. This week will be Year 5D and the following week will be Grade 1D. The schedule for the performances to follow will be part of the next edition of the newsletter.
