In maths we will be doing basic work, nothing specific, just learning what we can . The kids are obsessed with money, as kids often are, so using money for maths is a no-brainer in my opinion.
The main focus of our year though will be on SOSE/HSIE. We will be looking at Australia for the most part, history, geography and Aussie animals (which I suppose also covers some science). For the Aussie Animals we will be using those annoying Woolworths Cards to our advantage, they may not be comprehensive, but I think they will be good as starters. Since we own the book Wombat Stew, I figure we can use that as well, even if it's only for reading fun.
Along with looking at Australia we will also be learning about religion. That is, not how to be religious, but about what various religions believe in. Our first look at religion will be a study of the various beliefs of the Afterlife, including non-religious beliefs such as Oblivion, or nothingness. For this we will be using something I put together myself that was inspired by an Afterlife Unit by Little Pagan Acorns.
For the rest we will be using random printables that I find through Google and Pinterest. Art tutorials, colouring pages, crosswords, find-a-words, craft tutorials and ideas. We will also use things that I create and of course, the library is the greatest resource of all.
