In writing we are continuing to work on recounts and will be introducing report writing. We will look into fiction and non fiction texts and undertake a Talk for Writing project. Spelling continues as per Term 1 and 2. All students have been progressing well. If you would like their weekly spelling lists sent through, please let me know.
Statistics and Probability will be a focus where we look into chance and outcomes of events. We will be working on interpreting and representing data. We will continue working hard on number, consolidating our skills with numbers to 100. Focusses will include number bonds (part, part, whole/ fact families), increased complexity of addition and subtraction strategies, solving word problems and daily mental maths.
