Year 3

Term 2 Overview

Term 2 will see the students continue to develop good school habits and learn the routines of a flexible learning space in the Upper Cloud. There will also be a focus on developing their maturity in this space and social interactions both inside and outside the classroom.

In Writing, students will be following the Seven Steps to Success which focuses on spelling and grammar, as well as the importance of effective planning and correct text structures. Later in the term, students will be focussing on transactional pieces and how to write both formal and informal letters.

In Reading, the students will learn how to efficiently summarise a variety of text types, moving on to the visualising strategy and making connections with the texts they read.

Numeracy will focus on consolidating their addition and subtraction strategies, developing their worded problem solving skills and then developing their multiplication and division strategies. The end of term will see them focus on location and mapping.

Science will be centred upon the understanding that the Earths rotation causes regular changes. Students will be putting together a science project of their choice and we hope to invite you in while they share their wonderful presentations.

Students will be exploring the aforementioned within the concept of Change, with a particular focus on Communication and Collaboration.

We’d love to utilise your expertise and passions in our classrooms, if you are open and willing to come in and share any knowledge and skills with our students, please get in touch.
