Religion: Why is this special book “the bible” important to us as a school family?
Students will understand that the bible is a special book. They will make links between some familiar Old Testament stories and their own experiences by sharing characters, events and messages that may be similar or different to their own experiences. Students will listen and respond to the two creation stories in Genesis. They will share feelings and thoughts about the goodness of God’s creation from their own experience.
English: Students engage with a variety of texts for enjoyment and information. They will sequence familiar stories and identify rhyme in texts. Students will participate in shared and guided reading, viewing and storytelling using a range of literary texts. Students will create texts using pictorial representations and recounts. Students will continue to develop their knowledge of concepts of print, sounds and letters and reading strategies.
History: “My Family Tree”
Students identify different structures of families and family groups today and what they have in common. Students will learn about their own history and the history of their family.
Science: Physical Sciences – “On the Move”
Students will develop an understanding of how things move. They will explore the push and pull forces they can use to move objects in ways such as sliding, bouncing and spinning.
