TERM 2 2021
Welcome back to Term 2! We hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter holiday.
Reading this term will cover a range of strategies from our CAFE (Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency and Expand Vocabulary) program alongside our Daily 5 reading choices. Students will be expected to read their satchel books daily at home and to be recorded into their diaries. This will be counted towards their 'Nights of Reading'. We strongly encourage all students to keep their diary in their satchel and brought to school every day. The diary is expected to be handed in to their teacher each week. At this stage (end of Term 1), we would hope that your child has reached 30 reading nights, which is an average of 3 reading nights per week.
Our Numeracy focus in the first half of term will be on addition, chance and 3D objects. The second half focus will be on subtraction, length, area, volume and capacity. Open Learning will continue first week back.
Writing will have a strong focus on narratives. As always, our VOICES program provides students with essential writing skills and we will be looking into each of these traits throughout the term. Sound Waves remains a core focus for spelling and expanding students’ vocabulary.
Our Inquiry focus this term is Biological Science. Students will be exploring the life cycles of different species.
Digital Technologies will focus on exploring and identifying controls and developing basic computer skills.
