Teaching and Learning Term 1

English

This term we will be developing the students’ understanding and use of the Super 6 comprehension strategies: Making Connections, Predicting, Questioning, Monitoring, Visualising and Summarising. Our writing focus will be on persuasive texts. 

Mathematics

This term, there will be a strong focus on whole number and mental addition and subtraction strategies. While the work might look easy, the challenge comes from building flexibility and developing mathematical reasoning. The goal is for students to be using the most appropriate strategies rather than sticking to the ‘safe’ ‘comfortable’. 

Science

Stage 2 of the Digital Technologies strand focuses on digital systems and how they transmit data. Students explore different types of data, have the opportunity to learn how to interpret patterns and develop skills in visual programming. Stage 2 of this strand further develops students’ knowledge and understanding of computational thinking and abstraction. There will be emphasis on the skill involved in ‘working scientifically’: processing and analysing data, design and production, producing and implementing and testing and evaluating.
