Welcome to Term 2

Year 3

This is the year that students cross over the half way mark of their time at Primary School. They are no longer a part of the Junior school and they are ready to take all the knowledge that they have already gained into their future learning. Assisting these students in the transition from Junior to Middle school are four fantastic teachers; Mrs Kate Emry, Mrs Heffernan, Miss Imogen Green and Mrs Mel Whipp.

Term 3

In Term 3, the Year 3s are exploring the Big Idea ‘The way people communicate is constantly evolving’. Students are using their inquiry skills to find out more about changes in different methods of communication over time, including verbal/non-verbal, written, face-to-face and multimedia. As a starting point, students used a visible thinking routine called ‘I see, I think, I wonder’ to closely examine a ballpoint pen.
