Welcome to Term 3! It's hard to believe that we are already almost half way through the last term of this school year!
This term we will continue with the elements of a good story., wow words and correct punctuation. We will be investigating the diference between fiction and non fiction texts. In Grammar we will continue with adverbs, contractions and compound words. We are enjoying our improved fluency in reading and becoming more adventurous in our creative writing! As part of our instructional writing, we followed instructions to make our own sandwiches.
This term we will focus on doubling, halving and measurement using standard units such as centimetres, metres, grams and kilograms, millilitres and litres. We will improve our mental maths with bonds up to 20 as well as adding 3 single digit numbers. This term is a term of consolidation in our great learning in maths. We have enjoyed a wonderul maths week where our focus was on money and simple financial understanding.
This term we will continue celebrating our school's diamond jubilee. We had a wonderful whole school family picnic as part of our 60th anniversary celebrations. In Science we will be learning about animals and their habitats, lifecycles and a simple food chain. We had a wonderful trip to Mbala Estate to link in with our topic of animals. In Geography we will be looking at the contrast between the northern and southern hemisphere. In History we will be exploring important African leaders from the past.
