Term 4 2017
In Reading, we will continue to cover the CAFE reading strategies to develop all student’s comprehension, accuracy, fluency and develop vocabulary, including their MiooW words. In Writing, students will continue to work on their individual goals and write about a variety of topics. The main aim this term is for the students to become as independent as possible with writing. We are becoming very familiar with letters and their sounds including digraphs.
In Maths, students will be working on their understanding of Numbers 0-100, beginning to understand the strategies of multiplication and division and they will use simple graphs to display and record information such as how we travel to school.
Science and Integrated Studies
During term 4 the Prep students will be travelling into the world of Fairy Tales! This unit provides many opportunities for learning in all areas of the Prep curriculum, particularly in Literacy, Drama, Performance and Art. Students will also be given opportunities to reflect on the problems faced by Fairy Tale characters and help them find other solutions!
