2012 Planning

I have spent the last week writing up my planning for 2012. We will be inspected this year as R turns "school age", so I want to have everything in place. Along with the obvious maths and English we will be focusing on ancient history and geography, biological science, artist study, computing, nature study, life skills, reading and narration.

Here's a sneak peek at some of the things I have in store for term one:

  • Counting, number bonds, addition, subtraction, tables, properties of numbers, money and real life maths problems.
  • Lots of reading, narration, handwriting, phonics, grammar, writing reports, stories and poems. 
  • Living things, habitats, biomes, species and offspring, plant structure, growing plants, Australian animals and tree study.
  • Picasso artist study, experimenting with art materials and techniques, painting, collage, clay work, landscape, felting, and simple perspective. 
  • Archaeology, making and burying a time capsule, hieroglyphic writing, mummifying a chicken, making monsters, and story telling.
  • Touch typing, mouse skills, word processing, digital photography and image manipulation. 
  • Swimming and music lessons.
  • Cooking.
  • Gardening.
  • Excursions.
  • Home Education group hangouts and survival skills.

Check back often to see how it all turns out.
