Students will explore the story book “Are We There Yet?” by Alison Lester. They will investigate each location in Australia visited by the characters in the book. Some concepts covered include map reading, unique features of Australia and how this relates to us an individuals.
Students will investigate various fairytales, their make up and construction and apply this information to creating their own fairytales.
Students will research and investigate the planets of the solar system, and how Earth, moon and sun are connected. This leads up to our sleepover camp.
Term 4: “Celebrations”
Students learn about Celebrations in our culture, and how other cultures celebrate similar events. Aspects covered include festivals, religious celebrations, sporting events, significant days and how food is incorporated into some of these celebrations.
The Literacy Program has been formulated in accordance with the National Curriculum – English program released early this year.
Parents and carers can best assist students by making them feel comfortable and relaxed about the nature and purpose of the tests. They can assure their children that the assessments will give them an opportunity to show what they have been learning.
