Literacy: 

For reading this term we will cover a range of CAFE strategies with a large focus on comprehension, accuracy, building and extending vocabulary. In our writing we will continue to explore narrative skills before moving onto persuasive writing and poetry.  We will focus on weekly Soundwave sessions to support students’ reading, writing and spelling skills. Students will take home readers for nightly reading and Oxford words for practice. Let’s see how many students can get to or exceed 200 nights of reading!

 

Numeracy: 

We will delve into Statistics and Probability, focusing on Chance before moving onto Shape and Location and Transformation. Weekly Open Learning sessions will continue to further target your child’s Number Sense learning needs on a Tuesday morning

 

Inquiry: 

We will explore Geography and Sustainability, investigating your child’s special place and other connections they have on a local, national and international scale.  We will examine how places have changed, what makes them unique and how we can take care of them. 

 

Digi Tech: 

Students will engage in digital devices this term by making a replica of a device and explaining the significant parts. They will then combine their math and coding skills to make their robots move around a model ‘town’.

 

Parent Helpers: 

We welcome the assistance of parents in our classrooms.  If you are able to help, please do not hesitate to contact your classroom teacher.   

 

How to support your child at home:

  • Listen to them read aloud each day, signing their diary. Ask questions before, during and after the reading process to encourage your child to think about what they’re reading
  • Encourage them to rehearse their Oxford words in fun ways like Snap, Memory or Rainbow Writing (just to name a few!)
  • Get out a deck of cards and help develop confidence in Maths. Some ideas are adding two cards together or subtracting them (if they’re up for a real challenge, why not try multiplication!)
