WELCOME TO YELLOW GROUP
Classroom Teacher - Mrs Christine Bridgeman
Term 2 Foci:
Writing: In writing we are working on planning, drafting and publishing narratives and expositions. We will look at the ways to structure our writing and use descriptive and persuasive language. We will develop our editing skills to ensure it has correct punctuation and grammar.
Reading: During reading we will have a comprehension focus each week. We will develop our abilities to decode words using different reading strategies. This is supported by daily oral language warm-ups, guided reading, shared reading and independent reading activities.
Numeracy: Our numeracy focus for the remainder of the term includes place value and counting for the Grade 2’s and 3’s. The Grade 4’s will focus on recalling multiplication and division facts up to the 10’s facts.
Integrated: This term we are investigating Australia. We are also exploring healthy habits and the Commonwealth Games. STEM gives our budding scientist and engineers the chance to plan, create and make new discoveries.
Yellow Group are excited about the impending arrival of our classroom pet. We have enjoyed conversations about what will make the perfect classroom pet and important ways to look after it.
