Grade 1/2

Term 2 Learning

Welcome to Term 2! 

We have another exciting term ahead.

This term, the children will be learning 'how to be a scientist' through our integrated topic, as well as working with the four operations in maths. 

We also have our 10th Anniversary celebrations at our current Hiller Lane site, as well as our Grade 1/2 swimming program.  We will keep you updated with the dates for these events though our school calendar.

We are looking forward to another wonderful term working with your children.       

          

Thanks - Lindy, Lisa, Rachael and Bec
