We will be covering the unit Through the Generations. Within this theme, students will learn about the lives of people in the past as they interview a person from an older generation. They will learn words to describe events in the past, present, and future and words to describe a point of view. Students will consider the importance of places to people in their community and people from different cultures. They will learn about sequences and different ways that stories from the past can be told. This aligns with UN Goal 5: Gender Equality & UN Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities Getting ready for school each day Please have your child help you pack their own bag each night/morning. This practice will make it much easier for them when they have to do it themselves at school. Ensure your child gets plenty of sleep and a good breakfast, so they are fresh and ready to learn. Punctuality to school is very important. Good attendance is vital; too many days off, or arriving late may hinder your child’s learning. PDHPE Students will be participating in Sport each Thursday. This will focus on team games. In PDHPE students will focus on the fundamental movement skills and our unit is called “Getting along with others. ” Canteen Wednesday – Recess over the counter sales - Place lunch order in the slot for Friday lunch Friday – Preordered lunch order
