Welcome to Term 2
Hi and welcome to Term 2.
This term will see us focussing on organisation. The children have been asked to think about what goals they would like to set in the classroom and at home and what steps they can take to help them achieve their goals. We will be talking about how our goals are our destination and how by proper planning and time management we can reach our goals. As a part of our focus on organisation, children are reminded to bring their diaries or communication books every day, return their library books on a Wednesday and their homework and readers on their allotted day.
For fitness this term, the Cycle Two team have decided to offer all Cycle Two children a choice of either Indigenous games with Jo, Exercise Circuit with Wendy, or Ball skills with myself on Tuesdays. The children enjoy being able to choose a sport to try and to mix with children from other Cycle Two classes.
In Cultural Studies, after a recap of the first two Montessori Great Lessons of the Big Bang and life coming to Earth in Term 1, we will focus on endangered animals this term. We will be investigating the causes of animal endangerment and extinction, the animals that are, and have been, affected by them and what actions we can take as individuals to protect endangered animals.
And lastly, thank you to all our parent helpers your time and efforts are greatly appreciated.
Judy, Jo and Jane
