I hope you have had a relaxing and enjoyable break. We have a busy and exciting term ahead of us with a lot going on around the school.

Make sure you keep up to date by using the school app or if you chose, a paper copy of the notice will be sent home.

Inquiry: Animals in Action 

This term we are doing something a little different where our inquiry will run over 3 full days, rather than afternoons during the term. 

The students enjoyed the animal inquiry so much last term that we have decided to continue with the topic. However, it will be with a technology premises.

Our big idea is the enterprise and design of an enrichment toy for zoo animals.

The students will need to think, plan, test, make and evaluate this toy.


Reading groups will continue this term, along with the shared book and poem.Thank you for writing the home readers in the homework book once they are completed.


Math's groups and rotations will continue in Term 2. Every Tuesday we will be learning about position and orientation.
