Junior School - Grade 1/2
In Grades One and Two, learning is experienced across a range of curriculum areas, through topics the students find interesting and engaging. The integrated curriculum involves students in inquiry learning. Students formulate questions, investigate to find answers, build new understandings, meanings and knowledge, and then communicate their learnings to others.
Where’s the Party?
Junior School students recently enjoyed improving their financial literacy, as they saved money towards an end-of-term class party. Students were engaged as they listed the treats they wanted for the event, and they were all amazed to discover that the cost of party supplies was much greater than the budget they were working within.
Looking closely at Australian coins and notes as we practised counting our money, was highly engaging for everyone! The end result of all the hard work? A wonderful, fun-filled party!!
