Welcome to Term 2
We had a great time in Term 1 being scientists and we will continue this State of Being in Term 2. There will be plenty happening in the run up to Christmas and we look forward to seeing you at the various School events. Remember if you need to discuss your child at any time please let either myself or Mrs Phillips know, either directly or via the School Office.
As part of our Wild City curriculum we will be scientists examining the Earth, its Geography and place in the Solar System.
The children will explore how the planets and moon move around each other and be able to explain why the shape of the moon changes each night.
Closer to home we will be using ipads and atlases to identify continents, cities, and many natural and manmade features. At home you might be able to use Google Earth to test each other.
This term our Mathematicians will start by improving their multiplication and division skills. Later on we will be looking at calculating area and perimeter.
The book we will be studying in our quest to be better Authors is Cosmic which will complement our Enquiry. This humorous adventure is seen through the eyes of twelve year old Liam Digby a ‘gifted and talented’ child whose physical appearance ages him beyond his years. I am sure the children will love it.
In line with the new school policy we ask that the children bring in their Reading Records every day.
Children should practice their times tables at home, if you need your Rock Stars password please let me know.
I can help put right unfair situations that may arise.
I am confident to ask and answer questions to help my understanding.
I can undertake activity with minimum support asking for clarification only when necessary.
