The topic this term is Science.  Experimenting for a purpose is fun - just look at this guy!

Parents and Caregivers are welcome at any time to be part of the learning for the term and we encourage family to be actively involved in both Home Learning tasks and those completed at school.

The St Thomas's Value we are focusing on this term is 'Excellence'.  With the end-of-year award ceremony approaching, students will be working hard to achieve to the very greatest of their potential.


KEY COMPETENCY

Thinking

"Thinking is about using creative, critical, and metacognitive processes to make sense of information, experiences, and ideas. These processes can be applied to purposes such as developing understanding, making decisions, shaping actions, or constructing knowledge. Intellectual curiosity is at the heart of this competency.

Students who are competent thinkers and problem-solvers actively seek, use, and create knowledge. They reflect on their own learning, draw on personal knowledge and intuitions, ask questions, and challenge the basis of assumptions and perceptions."

LEARNER DISPOSITION

Problem Solving

"Effective problem solvers know how to ask questions in order to fill in gaps between what they know and what they do not yet know. They also pose questions about alternative points of view and often make causal connections between people, events or situations."
