Week 2 Term 2

Image
Welcome to Week 2 everyone. History is talking about people and places in the past.  Last week we had a brief look at the history of ANZAC Day and how sharing history helps us to understand how our past influences our present and allows us to tell the same stories over time. The activities for the junior years this week dig a little into family histories. For our older students, we are going to start looking at community, national and global histories.   

PRE-PRIMARY

Students will be able to:
●Understand that families have a past.

●Share an object (artefact) from their own past.
