Welcome back to Term 3, it’s hard to believe that we have passed the halfway mark of the year. It was lovely to see the big smiles yesterday as everyone caught up with friends and shared news from the holidays. I hope you all enjoyed extra family time and a more relaxed routine.
This term our Inquiry unit is about Australian History. Students will gain an understanding of what Aboriginal life was like before European settlement, investigate world explorers (including Captain Cook), the First Fleet and the impact of European settlement on the Aboriginal way of life.
To introduce this unit of study, Year 4 students will be walking to the Estuary for our “Tribal Day” this Thursday 19th July. We need 2 parent helpers to assist the supervision of groups. Please let me know ASAP if you can help.
We will also be showing the ABC’s “My Place” TV series depicting this era. Since it is rated PG, due to mild themes, parental permission is required. Please immediately sign and return the note sent home yesterday and contact me if you have any concerns or wish to preview the episodes.
Thanks for your support.
