In the Classroom: F/1
Term 4 Learning Overviews
This term, we have begun exploring narrative texts. Students are learning to identify the different parts of a story – including retelling narratives, and describing characters and settings. Next, we will explore rhyming words, as well as the manipulation of sounds in words. We will also learn about poems and how words are made up of syllables. Finally, we will explore cards and letters. Students will continue to be involved in a variety of activities to support their individual learning goals. This includes independent reading, one-on-one teacher conferences, hands on activities and small teacher-focus groups.
This term in Writing, we will be learning to write narrative texts, poems and cards and letters. Students will explore characters and settings as part of our narrative unit, as well as re-telling established narratives and creating their own. When writing poems, students will learn to create simple poems that involve repetition and rhyme. Finally, students will learn about the structures and features of cards and letters.
We have started this term learning about addition and subtraction. Students will continue to build on their understanding of each and further develop strategies to solve a range of problems – with a particular focus on adding to and subtracting from 10. We will then learn about data and statistics, where students will focus on collecting and representing data. Next, we will learn about time where we will explore days of the week, duration and telling time. Finally, learning will focus on fractions where students will learn about halves.
