In Term 3, we will be continuing  the Life Skills Program. This program has been beneficial for our students, as they have been focussing on the values of honesty, respect, resilience, teamwork and gratitude. 


Our key understandings for Inquiry are: 

  • There is a rich and diverse history in Hobsons Bay

  • There are various places (natural and built) that people can access in the local community.


This Inquiry concept will give students the opportunity to visit the Local Historical School and Altona Homestead. These excursions will provide experiences for our students to develop their understanding about the history of Hobsons Bay.


In Reading, we will be focusing on inferential questions and making text connections. We will also be looking at the text structure and features of Non-Fiction texts. We will be conducting Guided Reading groups based on student needs.


In Writing, we will be focusing on Information Reports and Poetry. We will also be continuing on with the SMART Spelling program.


In Mathematics, we will be focusing on Time, Subtraction and Location. Students will continue to use Essential Assessment to meet their individual learning needs. 


Tissues Required

We request that each child bring a box of tissues to use in the classroom.



Please remember to name all of your child’s clothes, hats and belongings. We do our best to find lost items but this is time consuming and almost impossible if they have no label. We appreciate your support with this matter.


Thank you,
