This week we have set up our Year 3 and 4 Jolly Learning of Spelling with the focus of digraphs/silent letters and Grammar program which includes parts of speech/antonyms.

Each student has also participated in individual goal setting for English, Mathematics and one of their choice in Term 1.

English: We continue Reader’s Workshop and have discussed why it’s important to build our reading stamina.

Mathematics: Students have focused on identifying number patterns, odd and even numbers and their properties. Students began their investigation into odd and even numbers in Mathematics.

 

Unit of Inquiry: We began our provocation for our ‘Who We Are’ unit. Students completed a visible thinking reflection to begin our focus on values.

Week 4 Learning:

Spelling: Year 3 students spelling focus will be ‘tch’ sound as in ‘batch’ and Year 4 students focus will be ‘nch’ sound as in ‘bench’. Grammar Year 3 focus is simple tenses while Year 4 students will focus on synonyms.

Mathematics: We will focus on place value to 10000 as well as probability of identifying dependent and independent events.

Unit of Inquiry: We begin to build our understandings of key concepts, deconstructing the central idea and lines of inquiry for the ‘Who We Are’ transdisciplinary theme.

Thank you to all parents for attending the iPad sessions this week. We hope you found this information valuable. Please return iPad agreement forms before Monday Week 4 to ensure your child will be able to use their iPad.
