Term 3  Room 5

Inquiries: We will be doing two inquiries this term, a Technology one and an Arts one. Our Technology Inquiry entitled “Animals in Action” involves the students designing an enrichment toy or enclosure for a Zoo animal.  The big idea is ‘Enterprise’ and the students will follow the process of Technological Practice which is thinking, planning, making, testing and evaluating. The Arts Inquiry is entitled “Creative Communication” focusing on how we communicate and entertain others through Music, Dance, Drama and Visual Art.  Room 5 students will be learning, practising and performing different fairy tale plays in small groups. They will perform these to entertain audiences within our school.
