Please find below an outline of the final term for 2017. We would encourage you have a thorough read over to find out what your child is learning. Some points can be excellent family dinner conversations, can provoke local library visits or spark conversations from signs and things happening around our environment.
For example; in HASS this term we are looking at the familiar services provided by the local government. We will be looking at parks, foot and bike paths, garbage collection, public libraries, roads and parking facilities. When you encounter these things on a daily basis it would great if you could point them out and have rich discussions around purpose and improvement.
We will also be delving into the online world of emails. A note will go home soon seeking permission for your child to participate. It is completely optionally and if you wish for your child not to have an education department email address, alternative accommodations can be made.
We are both looking forward to another very busy but productive term. Please do not hesitate to contact either of us should you have any queries or concerns.
