Term 3 - Week 1

Term 3 Week 1

Just a quick welcome back to the new semester and we pray the time has been well spent.

 

Learning: Students will be continuing with their unit of inquiry relating to business and business structure, as well as introducing the next unit about the use of advertising. These units are running concurrently so the learning about advertising can be utilised within their business model to enhance sales.

 

YR 6 parents : In preparation for the end of the year celebrations we are asking for students to locate and bring in a photo or themselves as a baby and in a younger year such as first day at school. If electronic versions are available please send them to Mr Maddren, or actual photos can be brought in for scanning. These pictures are used to show at the celebration dinner that will be held in term 4.

 

  • Student-led conferences– these will take place in Term 3 week 2 (Tuesday 1st of August and Wednesday the 2nd of August). Please refer to the school newsletter for further information. Bookings can be made via http://www.goldengrove.sa.edu.au/2017/06/21/student-led-conferences/  Please copy code w5uz8 (you will need this to make your online booking)

 

 

Thanks from the year 5/6 team

Learning: Students are exploring how media influences the way we think through the use of advertising. We would then like them to link to their business and manipulate their current way and type of advertising to increase sales.

This will lead students to letter writing to apply for this position.
