Welcome to Term 2, 2016. This term's focus is 'Born Leaders'.

SCHOOL WIDE FOCUS - LEAD
ERSHIP

This term the whole school is focusing on one of the core values for St Thomas's School: Leadership. We are building on the prior learning from Term 1 where we focused on 'Connections'. The learning for the term will culminate in an Open Morning to the St Thomas's community in week 10. 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- especially the five challenges for the term. More details to follow nearer the time.

BORN LEADERS

Everybody has leadership qualities and knowing what your capabilities are enables you to apply them to both your personal life and to the lives of others. Year 7&8 students will be focusing on five different challenges to understand more deeply where their strengths lie. The details of these challenges will be given to the students at the beginning of week 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. The tasks for these challenges will be collaborative and they will cover a range of situations to suit a range of passions and skills.

KEY COMPETENCY

Our Key Competency focus for Term 2 is 'Participating and Contributing' however the students will need to draw also on all the other competencies and especially the Term 1 Key Competency of 'Relating to Others'.

OTHER EVENTS THIS TERM

We begin the term (after our parent meeting early in week 2) with the 'Keeping Ourselves Safe' topic and we are well supported by Constable Gordon in Week 3 with part of these learning activities. Weeks 4-10 see the our topic of 'Born leaders' as the major focus. We will be continuing with both Narrative and Explain genres for writing an
d in reading there are a range of texts required to be read for a 'Reading Pentathlon'. Continuing with the success of term 1 Maths Rich Task will be an individual Maths Rich task for students to complete based on Strand learning of 'Measurement'. See the Maths website page for details.
