3/4 Area


We are so excited to have our students back in the classrooms! All of our students have come back from their holidays eager to learn, challenge theirselves and make new friends.

 

Literacy:

In reading, students will be focusing on the different language choices authors use in texts, adverb and prepostional phrases, as well as understanding what texts are persuasive, informative or entertaining. In writing, the middle school students will been focusing on writing a recount and exposition/ persuasive pieces. Students will begin by having a look at the structure, followed by brainstorming and creating ideas. Students will use these ideas to write, edit and publish their own, incorporating simple, compound and complex sentences. 

 

Numeracy:

During this term in maths we will been learning about Place Value, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, as well as Chance, Data and Shapes. Throughout these topics, we will be making sure that students also have problem solving activities. Students have been using Essential Assessment to find their goals for each of these topics and working hard on being able to understand and demonstrate them. 

 

Integrated:

Our Term 3 integrated topic is Health. Middle school students will been investigating the Skeletal System, Muscular System, Nervous System, Circulatory/Cardiovascular System, Digestive System, Respitory System. We will be doing a lot of hands on activities to help students understand how each of these systems work.
