Term 2 Weeks 9 and 10

Hi Everyone,

As you may be aware, Wednesday is my last day for a little while.  I’m having an operation to repair a snapped ligament in my ankle.  While I’m away Mrs Norcliff will deliver the Curriculum I have planned for the students.  I believe she can not do this Thursday, so I don’t know who the students will have.  Mrs Luff will still be in the room to make sure the transition goes smoothly.

Here’s a brief summary of the two weeks left of the term.

English

The students will be finishing off our work relating around the book ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes.  They will be writing a procedural text on how to build and robot.  Studying the planning process when writing Robot stories and ending the term with a little robot poetry. Guided Reading will be looking at strategies the students already know. Next term I will be introducing them to more of the 18 reading strategies.

Mathematics.

The students will be finishing off their work on Multiplication and Division.  They will then move on to Fractions as they are linked closely to Division.  During the holidays I would love it if you could ask your children to write the fact families for multiplication facts.  If you are unsure how to do this then please pop in and see me before Thursday.

 

WEDNESDAY WEEK 9 – This Wednesday we are celebrating the Winter Solstice by wearing Pyjamas to school.  Please make sure your child wears their normal school shoes.  All clothing must cover shoulders and be no shorter that their normal school uniform.  They must also be able to wear their school hat and have hair tied up.  They can bring in a SMALL teddy but no blankets please.  We will be observing an hour without power so a bathrobe/dressing grown maybe required to keep them warm.  If you have any questions then don’t hesitate to ask.

Homework will go home tomorrow and is due back on Friday.  No homework will be given on the last week of term.

THURSDAY WEEK 10 – There will be a NAIDOC Incursion.

Have a lovely rest of the weekend and I will see you all tomorrow morning.

Karen.
