Classroom Connections


Term 3 is an exciting term for Room 4 as we continue together on our learning adventure, full of magical experiences and discoveries.



Our Inquiry topic this term is “Let’s Get Creative”. We will focus on “The Arts” being ways to communicate our feelings and ideas. Pop in and have a look at our ‘wonderings’ and later in the term our ‘discoveries’.

In Mathematics this term we are continuing to focus on addition and subtraction, developing understanding of real life contexts and knowledge activities to help our recall of basic facts, place value and fractions. We will continue to play knowledge games as a whole class and as part of the Mathematics group rotation. The strand focus for this term is “Position and Orientation”.

For Writing we will be continuing to write about our personal experiences and describe people, animals and objects. We will be learning to write more and to expand on our ideas to included who, what, where and when.  We will use the descriptors to help develop details in our writing: Number, Colour, Size, Shape, Doing, Position and Texture.  We will be working on adding interesting details to our writing including adjectives, verbs and conjunctions. “The Solar System” is a key topic this term we will be learning about and connecting to our writing.

Reading: Shared and guided reading daily – focusing on retell of main ideas with supporting details and comprehension of fiction and non-fiction texts.

This term we will be training and participating in the school “Cross Country” for P.E.  It is important that we remember to bring suitable clothing for this on Thursdays.  After the “Cross Country” is completed we will continue to focus on “fundamental skills” and “winter ball skills” such as; kicking, striking, throwing, catching and jumping.
