Weekly Update

Term 3

Welcome back to Term 3!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable and entertaining break.
This term is going to be a fascinating term as our main focus for inquiry will be looking at Movement, exploring the reasons of how and why people move, in the past, present and also into the future.

For Maths we will be looking at Geometry for our Strand learning and carrying on with our knowledge and strategy development for number. For Geometry will cover position and orientation, including mapping skills, coordinates, direction and describing compass points.

In Literacy we will be continuing to cover our reading strategies for comprehension and writing both narrative and informational texts. We will be looking at how we can integrate our understanding and comprehension of texts to aide our inquiry focus.

For Arts we will be looking at using different mediums to represent ideas and focussing on how art is used to represent the past, present and future. We will be looking at the use of colour, lines and how art can influence other areas of our lives, such as architecture.

In term three our PE/ Health programme will continue around practicing skills of catching, throwing and striking using a variety of sports equipment and applying these skills to game situations. Movement, spatial awareness and being a team player will also be part of the sessions.
