Curriculum

For the first term, we will be settling into our classrooms, developing good school habits and learning the routines of a flexible learning space in the Lower Cloud.

Writing, students will be exposed to the value of a Writer's Notebook to organise and develop their ideas before progressing onto the application of persuasive writing.

Reading, the students will develop their reading comprehension strategies through explicit instruction and apply this to our Australian Geography focus this term.

Numeracy will focus on the real life application of mathematics. In Term 1 students will focus on consolidating their addition strategies and developing their problem solving skills.

Students will be exploring the aforementioned within the context of Democracy and Australian Geography, with a particular focus on Civics and Citizenship.

Homework Expectations

At the start of each term, students will be given a homework project, set out with activities to complete week by week. This will culminate in an end of term homework project exhibition. They will share this work with their peers and teachers during this designated project review
afternoon.

Students will have access to the digital work sharing space ‘SeeSaw,’ an interactive school approved app where students are encouraged to share their learning and respectfully comment and reflect on one another's project development.
