3/4W parent information term 3 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Hi everyone. Well, we’re at the half way point of the year and my fingers are crossed that Tasmania stays covid19 free and we don’t have any more lockdowns or bouts of online learning.

Despite the strange year I’m loving being at Albuera Street Primary School. The facility itself is great, the staff are wonderful and I couldn’t ask for a better class of kids. I particularly wanted to thank you all for your support and encouragement. It means a lot to me. I feel buoyed by stories of how engaged and enthusiastic your children are for learning. I will endeavour to maintain a fun and inclusive learning environment this term and look forward to laughing and learning with your kids.

As usual, don’t hesitate to contact me, either through the school phone or by email (, if you have any questions or information you wish to share. I’m not the sort of person who spends a lot of time at the computer so I don’t always jump on emails but I’ll try to get back to you quickly on important matters.

Following is a brief outline of the learning areas and activities we will be focusing on this term.



  • Spelling, vocab building and word study
  • Grammar – first, second and third person, and editing
  • Information and Procedural Texts
  • Reading strategies and comprehension


  • Problem solving strategies
  • Multiplication and Division
  • Fractions – modelling and representing, and equivalent fractions


  • Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic rocks
  • Soil Composition
  • Changes in the Earth’s Surface
  • Representing and communicating ideas and findings


  • Australian states and territories
  • Places of significance to both indigenous and non-indigenous people

Term 3 Newsletter

Dear Families,

Please remember that Monday 20th July is a pupil-free, professional learning day for teachers. At Albuera Street we will have no administration or other non-teaching staff at school so the office will be closed and there will be no-one available to supervise children who arrive at school unexpectedly. We will look forward to welcoming everyone back at school on Tuesday!


As we return for term 3, some of the COVID – 19 restrictions in place in term 2 have been lifted. Please see current advice attached.

Grade 6 High School Intention 2021

High School Intentions for 2021

 Dear parents of Year Six students

As we approach the halfway mark of the year, Year Six students start to look ahead to transitioning to Year Seven.

To begin this process, Albuera Street Primary and Taroona High School require parents to indicate which high school their children will be attending next year.

To assist us with collecting this knowledge, please complete the Microsoft Form (link below) with your child. We would appreciate all Forms to be completed by 12pm this Friday July 3rd.

If your family is uncertain which high school your child will attend in 2021, please simply indicate Taroona High School at this stage.

 Click here to complete the Form.

 Paper copies are available at the office if you are unable to complete the Form online.
