Concept - Point of View & Perspective
This term, Stage 2 students will explore the concept 'Point of View' and 'Perspective'. Point of view in a text is the position from which the subject matter of a text is designed to be perceived. Perspective is a lens through which we learn to see the world; it shapes what we see and the way we see it. Exploring point of view and perspective will allow students to explore other ways of seeing a text. Stage 2 will explore how authors use different points of view to show different perspectives and influence their audience.
Concept - Part-Part Whole
In Maths, students will be supported and challenged through differentiated tasks that provide concrete and abstract representations of content. In Term 1, we will be exploring strategies for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division both with whole numbers and fractions. We will also examine mass, time and data. A number of projects will be completed to help students focus on the application of their learning.

Stage 2 students will be using elements of drama and visual arts to explore different artists' perspectives and communicate their own points of view through surrealism. We will identify different forms, materials and techniques in artworks and describe how these are employed to represent subject matter.
Concept - Change
In PDHPE, students will be exploring how an understanding of 'Change' can be used to improve performance and sportsmanship in various games. They will also look at social, physical and emotional changes that people experience as they grow, and research sources where they can seek help about health, safety and wellbeing
