This term’s inquiry focus will be “Australia’s Neighbours”. This unit aims to provide the opportunity for each student to compare and contrast the diverse geographical and man made features of Australia and neighbouring countries to understand how each contributes to everyday cultural lifestyles.
Literacy sessions are held daily with tasks catering for students individual needs. Guided reading and writing sessions will link to our Inquiry Focus and the development of student knowledge of the different text type. Reading tasks will focus on developing reading comprehension strategies utilising Café Reading alongside the Victorian Curriculum. Students will participate in reading groups within their own class and at times with the other 3/4 class. In writing this term the students will be explicitly taught the structures of narratives, persuasive texts and descriptions. We will continue to follow the SMART spelling program with a focus on a weekly sound.
During Maths lessons we aim to foster an enjoyment and appreciation for Maths. Students will develop their understanding of Fractions, Multiplication, Location and Transformation, Chance and Data and Area and Perimeter. We will continue to direct the students to broaden their knowledge of different strategies and approaches to apply when completing problem solving tasks.
