Support Unit News: Term 3

The past few weeks SJ have been buzzing with excitement with lots of things happening. We have been learning about healthy and unhealthy foods in PDHPE, informative texts and learning about animals. We have also been involved with community access and attended the Infants Athletics Carnival. We are excited about the up and coming school holidays for a much deserved break. Well done class SJ keep up the good work. Miss Jeremiejczyk

Students in SS and SM have been learning about mass in Mathematics for the past 3 weeks. Students have learnt all about heavy and light objects and have participated in activities where they are categorising heavy and light objects and hefting objects to determine which object is light or heavy. This week students have been learning to measure the weight of objects using informal units.

Over the last few weeks, students in Class SJ have been busy learning about fractions. We were lucky enough to use our knowledge practically in the kitchen by making pizzas and cutting them into halves and quarters. It's been a very busy Term 3 and all students are enjoying their time at school, learning lifelong skills and becoming independent.

Students in SS and SM have been working hard learning about their selected decade in history, dance and art lessons. Students read informative texts about pop icons from the 80s and worked together to understand how the image of the 80s was formed. Students selected colourful wall paper designs in 80s colours and patterns and cut out different shapes before placing them around their art work. Our classes worked together to create a dance routine to the song ‘Shout' and enjoyed performing in front of teachers, peers and families at the 50th celebration. To conclude our learning, students jointly constructed a recount of the 50th anniversary day and did their best to write a sentence about their experience.

Class SJ has been extremely busy over the last few weeks. We have been learning about places within the community and the services they offer. We even got to visit Green Valley Library last week and participated in a lesson to learn how to borrow and browse for books. Thankyou to the staff at Green Valley Library. The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Students are looking forward to visiting more places within the community over the next few weeks. "I'm excited to say that students in class SJ have been so dedicated to their learning and are making huge improvements" - Miss Jeremiejczyk

This term, students in SS and SM have been looking at maps and globes trying to locate Australia. Students have also researched different Australian flora and fauna and famous landmarks. The children used different sources of information such as viewing videos, books, images and the internet to find this information about Australia. They enjoyed categorising and grouping images based on their category and seeing different famous Australian land marks, flora and fauna.

Here you can see students pretending to be sleeping scarecrows as they then jump up to life to dance along to the song. Kindergarten has really enjoyed learning how to dance along to different songs.
