What Are We Saving For?

Our term 2 topic is answering the question, 'What Are We Saving For?'. Each term our learning will be themed around a key question.

What is precious to us and how do we save it?

Our English text for term 2 is called, Where the World Turns Wild by Nicola Penfold that we will also be using for our RIC and English. We will also be covering the book Earth Heroes by Lily Dyu. Our foundation subjects will all link to our topic.
