Grade 1 & 2 – Even Year

Term 1

‘Where do I belong?’ was our Term 1 inquiry. As part of this unit, the students investigated how families have changed over time, the places in our community where they belong and what it means to belong.

Term 2

During term 2 our science inquiry was learning about the weather, the seasons and how they affect us. We discussed how weather shapes our landscape and our behaviour. As part of our inquiry we took part in a ‘Hands on Science’ incursion.

Term 3

As part of our ‘Living Things’ inquiry we investigated what living things need to survive. We looked at different habitats and discovered how different animals have adapted to different environments. As part of this inquiry, the Grade 1/2 students visited Healesville Sanctuary to learn about Australian animals and their habitats.

Term 4

As part of ‘How does it Work’ inquiry the students will be exploring various characteristics and properties of materials and components that are used to create designed solutions. We will also be looking at how we use technology. The students will be designing, building and critiquing various models of everyday objects.
