This term our Transdiciplinary theme is  – Who we are.

Within this theme the children will be exploring the central idea Changes in our lives can affect the form of our beliefs, values, health and interactions.

During the term we will be aiming to answer the following questions – What makes me special? What makes me an individual? What is my world like now? How has it changed? How do I interact with my world? How am I part of the community? How can I develop more links with my friends, family and community? What are my beliefs? What are the beliefs of others? How are my beliefs connected to others? What role does the church play in my community?
