Kindergarten to Year 1

Term 3 2018: Saturday 28 July 2018 to Saturday 29 September 2018 (10 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 3, we are pleased to offer the following package:

  • Kindergarten/Year 1:Two courses: The Solar System and Influential Artists

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: 

the solar system - angela sainsbury 

A solar system is a star and all of the objects that travel around it (including planets, moons, asteroids, comets and meteoroids). Most stars host their own planets, so there are likely tens of billions of other solar systems in the Milky Way galaxy alone.

Students will learn about our solar system, with a focus on the relationship between the Sun, Earth and the Moon. We will explore the orbital and rotational movement of planets in our solar system and investigate how the movement of the Earth and the Moon defines our years, seasons, days and nights.

Students will use their scientific inquiry skills to carry out investigations of the planets and solar system and research information including:

  • What are the different features of our solar system?
  • How does the movement of Earth in our solar system affect our calendar, seasons and days?
  • Why is gravity important to the way we move on Earth and the way Earth moves in our solar system?
Influential Artists - Angela Sainsbury

Visual arts includes the fields of art, craft and design. Learning in, and through, these fields students create visual representations that communicate, challenge and express their own and others’ ideas as artist and audience.

In this unit we will be looking at influential artists (such as Paul Cezanne, Gustav Klimt, Paul Klee and Leonardo Da Vinci). Students will study colour, light and composition. We will look at influential styles of art, and use them as a basis for creating our own work using experimentation and invention 
The course will operate with 8 or more participants and spaces are strictly limited. Each class runs for one-and-a-half hours.

In the event of a course being undersubscribed by the cut-off date, a decision will be made as to what adjustment will take place. Thus, the options displayed here may vary slightly from what is finally offered, depending on student interest. Please note that such adjustments are rare and that every effort is made to preserve the courses in the form initially offered here.
