Year 1

Term 3 Overview

The Year 1 students have an action-packed term ahead.

In Reading we will be revising decoding strategies, comprehension ‘right there’ and ‘think and search’ answers. We’ll also be interpreting poetry, practicing our inferring skills and revising our summarizing strategies.

In Writing we’ll be working on the correct use of Grammar and Punctuation, as well as Procedural and Narrative writing.

In Numeracy we will be focusing on Money, Division and Multiplication as well as Volume and Capacity.

The History topic is ‘Then and Now,’ focusing on the subtopics of family, school, houses, clothes, food and transport. We are also excited about the upcoming excursion to Como House in late August! Science will be incorporated within these lessons and focus on materials used in different objects and the push-pull concepts.

We will continue to work on Spelling sounds and patterns as well as frequently used words.

In addition to all of this, we will be out getting our hands dirty with Gardening, staying creative in Art and Music, becoming more worldly in Italian and keeping our fitness skills growing at Sport.

We look forward to working hard to achieve our goals and challenging ourselves even more in Term 3 – thanks for all of your support!
