Curriculum

Curriculum

Term 2 will see the students continue to develop good school habits and learn the routines of a flexible learning space in the Lower 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 continue to follow the Writing Workshop Process and learn how to apply the Seven Writing Traits to enhance their persuasive and narrative texts. There will also be a focus on spelling and grammar as well as the importance of effective planning and applying the correct text structures to pieces.

In Reading, the students will learn how to efficiently summarise a variety of text types, before moving on to developing their inference strategies and developing thoughtful questions while reading.

Numeracy will focus on consolidating their addition and subtraction strategies, developing their worded problem solving skills and then strengthening their multiplication strategies.

Science will be centred upon the understanding that living things have certain characteristics and adaptations in order to survive in their environments. We will looking specifically at Marine Life this term. Students will be putting together a science project and we hope to invite you in while they share their wonderful presentations.

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.

Homework Expectations

At the start of each term, students will be given a homework project, set out with activities to complete week by week. This will culminate in an end of term homework project exhibition. They will share this work with their peers and teachers during this designated project review
