Dismissal - please ensure that a teacher gains eye contact or gives you a wave to acknowledge that they have seen you before they allow your child to leave.

Absences - If your child is sick, please keep them at home. When notifying the school of an absence, please provide a written note, email or phone call.
An Exemption from school form is required for absences that are for 10 or more days. Please contact the office. 

Parent Interviews
Reasons: Academic, social, emotional or behaviour. (Please make a time so we can give the issue the attention it needs, as opposed to on the run catch-ups). Parents can make an appointment through the school office or by contacting the teacher directly. 

Please be aware teachers have staff meetings on Wednesday afternoons and Thursday mornings. The teachers are not available at these times.

If your child is having a birthday, they are welcome to bring in lolly pops or similar items. Please be aware that many children have allergies and are not allowed to eat cake with egg, gluten or items with traces of nuts. Please do not feel that you have to send anything in.

Please ensure that your child has all of their belongings clearly marked. 

Munch and Crunch: This is a snack that the children will have in the morning session during English time. Please ensure that your child has fruit or vegetables only and nothing that is too messy/sticky, eg. oranges etc. They may prefer that you have it cut up and put in a container so that it is easier to eat.

Term One 2018 Overview

Religious Education
Unit Title: Baptism

Unit A: Belonging This unit presents Mark’s account of ‘Jesus and the Children’ (Mark 10:13-16). Through this story children can experience Jesus as one who welcomes, loves and includes them. In this story children are valued. They are people who enjoy a relationship with Jesus and the kingdom.

Unit B: The Sacrament of Baptism  The unit introduces Baptism as the sacrament of initiation into the Church community. The emphasis here is on sharing in the new life of Christ. The unit presents the key symbols and actions used in the Rite of Baptism.

Unit Title: Lent and Holy Week

Unit A Journey from Ashes   This unit focuses on the season of Lent as a time to grow in the life of God. It explores ways we can foster that growth by trying to be better people. The unit then looks at Jesus’ journey in Holy Week from the Last Supper to Holy Saturday.

Unit B:  A Journey To Remember   During Holy Week we remember the Last Supper, and the death and Resurrection of Jesus. The students will learn about how Jesus asked us to remember him



Unit Title: Characters in Stories


Description:In this unit the students will discuss  characters in Traditional Fairy Tales. They will explore the traits of characters including physical appearance, personality, background and motive.

Term One Focus
Whole Number 
This unit will identity and revise the skills students established in Kindergarten.  It will recognise the understanding of the language and processes of counting by naming numbers in sequences, initially to and from 30, moving from any starting point.  Connect number names, numerals and quantities, including zero, initially up to 10 and then beyond.
Addition and Subtraction

The students will use objects, diagrams and technology to solve addition and subtraction problems. They will explore a range of strategies and use informal recording methods for addition and subtraction involving one- and two-digit numbers.


The students will gather and organise data and create data displays using tables, lists and picture graphs.  When they have gathered the data they will track what has been counted by using concrete materials, tally marks and words and symbols.  They will interpret the results and support their conclusions by explaining or demonstrating how their answers were obtained. The students will make and interpret graphs in different representations, both column and horizontal orientations.


During this unit the students will measure and compare the lengths of pairs of everyday objects using uniform informal units . They will measure lengths and distances by placing the units end-to-end without gaps or overlaps.  The students will record lengths and distances by referring to the number and type of uniform informal units used. 

The students will use the terms 'make', 'mark' and 'move' to assist them in understanding the concept of repeated units.


In this unit the students will 'tell time' focusing on reading the half-hour on both analog and digital clocks.  The students will focus on the important understanding, that when the minute hand shows the half-hour, the hour hand is always halfway between two hour-markers.  The students will name and order the seasons and the months of the year. They will use a conventional calendar to identify the day and date.
