Area One Website Term Four

In Term 4 the students of Area 1, all year levels, will be thinking about how we affect our environment. We will be thinking about sustainability and the actions that we can take to help ensure a healthy world for the future. We will also be looking at the sustainability of our bodies and how we can create a healthy mind and healthy body, and how this affects our brain function. 

We will cover the following:

  • Pollution
  • Carbon footprint
  • Packaging both plastics and paper
  • Reduce, reuse, recycle
  • Healthy body + healthy mind= happy life
  • Mindfulness + Meditation
  • Resilience Project

The Year 1 & 2 project will be to produce a show bag full of resources to help us maintain a happy life. We will be working on this throughout the whole term.

The Year 3 & 4 project will be to produce a board game (like Earthopoly) that incorporates all the information we have learnt through the term.

The Year 5 & 6 project is based on their mindfulness and resilience lessons from throughout the year. They will be building on this to create a sequence of lessons to teach other classes in the school. Students will get into small groups and choose an area that they would like to learn more about and teach to other classes, this could include; yoga session, nutrition seminar, organise nude food lunch days or mindfulness afternoon.
