WEEK 1 REFLECTION
This week classes have been busy preparing for Student Led Conferences which are next week as well as making a start on our new unit ‘Where we are in place and time’ (WWAIPAT). We have also set new essential agreements for this term as well as set ourselves some goals.
WEEK 2 CURRICULUM
Each class is heading separately to the Migration museum (4P, Tuesday 31st July / 4S Friday 3rd of August). The following week we will go on another excursion to Campbelltown and Hahndorf on Wednesday, August 8th to explore migration in these regions. Excursion forms for the migration museum were sent out on Tuesday – please return asap (by Friday please). The excursion permission form for Campbelltown and Hahndorf will be sent home very early week 2, and we ask that these be returned by Friday 3rd August. Parent helpers will be required for all of these excursions. If you know in advance, please let us know if you are available. Helpers still required for the Campbelltown and Hahndorf day.
Class work this week will be supported and focused around the excursions and working towards our cluster celebration in the worship Centre on Wednesday 12th September 6.00 – 7.00pm (week 8). In Maths we will begin some work on number lines and in English look at historical literature as well as view videos about migration. Christian Studies this term will be a comparison between Judaism (Jews) and Christianity. Culturally, Jesus was a Jew.

In English students have started planning their historical narratives and thinking about how they will introduce their story. Classes have engaged in migration alphabet games and word wall tasks. They also took part in a role play based on the Peramangk people who originally inhabitated the Adelaide Hills in order to experience the effects of settlement and gain an indigenous perspective.
In Christian Studies we have investigated features, history, symbols and discussed different views of Jesus held by Christians and Jews. (The 4P class have begun preparing for chapel in week 7 in some of their Christian studies lessons).
WEEK 5 CURRICULUM
Students will continue to work on their ‘Where we are in place and time’ celebration of learning presentation and construct historical narratives. In Maths our focus will be on equivalent fractions to support problem solving. Students will continue to hear migration stories and view videos to support and help develop deeper understanding of the Australian context at the time of immigration. All this will be looking through the lenses of perspective and change. In Christian Studies we will consider points of difference between Judaism and Christianity. Students will investigate artefacts, symbols, celebrations and practices and look at a biblical event from a Jewish and Christian perspective.
