Term 2 in 3/4 

 

Literacy:

This Term in Literacy the Grade 3/4 students will be continuing to develop their phonic knowledge in their morning Literacy block. Students will continue to practise words on their word lists that target specific sounds. Students will also focus on understanding how authors use descriptive words to describe settings, characters, traits and create a picture for the reader. They will also be looking at dialogue within texts, as well as the main idea and points of view. Students will be using these skills along with extending their knowledge on action and saying verbs, compound sentences, editing, paragraphs and quotation marks to create exciting narratives and information reports.

 

 

Numeracy:

In Maths term, our students will be building upon their skills and understanding across a range of different maths concepts. We will continue to use Essential Assessment Pre-test data to ensure we are planning lessons according to students mathematical needs, these topics include: number patterns, multiplication, 2D & 3D shapes, fractions, decimals and chance and data. We are going to continue weekly Math Investigations that involve problem solving that allow students to show teachers their mathematical strategies. Teachers will then extend and enable students using prompting to allow them to deepen their understanding of the mathematical concept. 

Integrated:

This term's inquiry question will be ‘What are the natural features of Australia.’ Throughout this term students will be using their research skills to identify and name different states and territories and discover their key natural features- this can include rivers or mountains. They will then use this knowledge to create their own focus question on the topic and develop/create their own project.
