Welcome back everyone!
Welcome also to Alyson Leete who is teaching 1ML for Semester 2.
Just to keep you up to date with what is happening this term.
Our Unit for Term 3 is “Where in the World is Victoria?”
This is a Geography unit and the key Inquiry questions from the Victorian Curriculum are:
-What are places like? (landscape)
– How and why are people connected to their place and other placesWhat makes a place special?
– How can we care for places?
We will be using a range of non-fiction books and websites in Literacy and Inquiry to assist children to become more familiar with the features of non-fiction texts. Students will be studying Victoria and its place in Australia and the World. They will become familiar with landmarks and natural features of various places. Students will be required to research and complete a mini project at school.
In Mathematics this term we will be developing the students’ knowledge of subtraction and extending their counting skills by looking at different skip counting patterns. We will also study length, mass and capacity during our measurement focus.
