Term Theme: Our World


Statement of Intention: During this term the children will have the opportunity to act on their natural curiosity by asking questions, investigating, exploring and making new discoveries. The children will develop persistence and problem solving skills as they take responsibility of their own learning and become aware of the world beyond their own backyards. The children will learn more about their world by looking at the past, exploring the present and dreaming of what the future could hold. They will widen their knowledge and acquire the essential skills and understanding to make sense of the world around them as they begin to engage with science, history and geography concepts.
