Welcome back to Term 2!
We have hit the ground running in Year 1 and everyone was excited to catch up with friends and share all about our holidays. We also had the opportunity to watch a beautiful puppet theatre show about life in the reef! It was wonderful.
As always, in Term 2, we will have a heavy focus on literacy. We are learning about Recounts in English and will be extending our knowledge and use of reading strategies to help us become remarkable readers!
We are continuing our unit on Past and Present in HASS and Science is going to see us participating in some cool experiments as we learn about Physical and Chemical Changes.
Can’t wait to see what term 2 has in store for us!

At the beginning of this term, Year 5 visited the Caboolture Historical Village. This trip helped the students to go back in time to over one hundred years ago, where they experienced aspects of school and life in that era. The students participated in four activities and were immersed in life during the colonial time. The eye opening job of washing without a machine, making machinery and tools without electricity and only the skills of a blacksmith, gem sieving and the life of a lone bush ranger, amongst many other elements, really engaged the students. The day took them on a journey of life over a century ago whilst comparing it to their everyday lives today. It was a day thoroughly enjoyed by all!
