Term 4, 2019: Saturday 19 October 2019 to Saturday 7 December 2019 (8 Weeks)
All of the courses start at 1.00 pm and finish at 4.00 pm. The first Saturday of term will include an orientation for students and their parents, which will provide a chance for parents to meet with teachers.
In Term 4, we are pleased to offer the following package to students in Kindergarten/Year 1:
TWO COURSES: YOUNG ASTRONOMERS and LOST IN SPACE
Courses are offered as a package, with two courses in each package, meaning all students enrolled will do both courses. NOTE: One Package not allowed.
Each class integrates hands-on activities around an interesting and exciting central theme. This term students will learn about:
YOUNG ASTRONOMERS - VANESSA ROMERO
What is beyond Earth? How far away are the stars? Is there life on Mars? These are just some of the inquiry questions students will be exploring in the Young Astronomers Course. Space is an exciting place to explore! In this course, students will learn about planets, stars, moons, galaxies, comets and various astronomical objects. There will be a strong focus on the current conditions on Mars. By studying the Mars 100 project, students will explore whether a human colony can survive this unique planet.
By thinking of the possibilities of what can exist in the infinite miles beyond our planet, the Young Astronomers Course will cater to your child’s curiosity and by the end of this fascinating course, students will develop an appreciation for astronomy.
LOST IN SPACE - WENDY BULLOCK
The K-1 team have been hired by a company that makes all kinds of maps. The children will be solving real-world problems as they work collaboratively to design and build a means of transport they can use to map our galaxy!
First they will need to decide what kind of environmentally-friendly fuel to use in order to power their transport and discuss the kinds of problems they might need to solve to get their craft off the ground. Then, the students will need to figure out a way to keep track of where they are going and how to get back to earth when they have finished their maps! Phew!
Team K-1 have a lot of thinking to do next term!!
