Our Learning this term
Inquiry learning: Our focus this term is Sustainability and Technology. We will be re-using recycled materials to design ideas for helping our school environment. As a part of our inquiry, the Takahe team will be visiting the Auckland Botanical Gardens.
Oral Language: Our focus is on learning new vocabulary for our Inquiry learning.
Written Language: We will be learning to start our sentences using interesting words and write using words from our word wall. We will be re-reading our sentences to check they make sense. Students will also be focusing on including descriptive words and punctuation into their sentences.
Reading: The students will be reading everyday at school. They will come home with reading books, word lists and some students will have Jolly Phonics to practise everyday.
Numeracy: Our focus this term is on basic knowledge building. We will be using Mathematics language
to talk about the strategies we are learning to use to solve Mathematical problems.
Statistics: Our focus this term is probability. The students will learn to predict the possible outcomes of events.
They will be using everyday language, such as the words; likely, unlikely or maybe to describe the l
ikelihood of an event happening.
Always remember to visit our class blogs to see what we are learning.
