Welcome to 2/3
Welcome back to Term 4. We sure do have a busy time ahead of us on the count down to the end of the school year and our Christmas break.
Students are working hard to consolidate and progress their understandings in reading comprehension with a focus on making inferences.
We have a celebration and editing focus in Writing this term. Students are having more of a choice in what they write about, showcasing the skills they have learnt throughout the year in the differing text types of narrative, informative and persuasive styles of writing. They are working hard to edit and polish their pieces, publishing them to add to their Writer’s Gift, which will be a wonderful display of their hard work for the year.
In Maths, students have shown great enthusiasm in our continued work on developing multiplication and division skills. This will remain a focus as we integrate this in to our learning of Shape and Area. Students will begin gathering data and looking at the differing ways this can be presented and analysed. Parts of number (Fractions) will also be integrated in to our learning, looking at how this area of maths is used in our everyday world.
Inquiry this term has a Geography focus. We are learning all about the differences in the world around us, making comparisons between Nar Nar Goon, Victoria, Australia and the World.
Some of the key questions that will investigating are;
Be sure to keep an eye on all the wonderful work and learning our students are doing in the SeeSaw app. If you are yet to sign in to this app or require assistance, please see your child’s classroom teacher and they will be more than happy to assist. This is such a positive and engaging way to be a part of your child’s learning, with the opportunity to view photos of work, listen to learning reflections and provide written feedback to your child.
