Our curriculum focus for this term:

In Reading we are focusing on setting up our routines and setting the expectations for the Reading Block. 

In Writing we are revisiting and building on our understanding of the writing process, including incorporating the 6 + 1 Traits of Writing into each piece of writing that we do. We will also be analysing the language features and structure of Factual Recounts and Narratives, leading into creating our own.

In Maths, we will be spending the term focusing on Number and Place Value including investigations that will allow students to build on skills to use when working with the 4 operations. 

Throughout Topic this term we are looking at “Who we are” with a specific focus on Australia's connection with the rest of the world. 

We are always available for a chat so please feel free to contact us at school anytime.
