What Are We Learning This Week?



Term 3 Week 4

Maths – Area
This week we will measure area by covering the surface with paper or an object in rows or columns so that there are no gaps or overlaps.
Our goals are to:
·      use uniform informal units to measure area by covering the surface in rows or columns without gaps or overlaps.
·      record areas by referring to the number and type of uniform informal unit used eg.’The area is 20 tiles.’
·      compare the areas of two surfaces that cannot be moved or superimposed.

English – Speaking and Listening
This week we share with the class a place in the world that we have been to or that we would like to visit. We will include information about on which continent the place is located, how we travel there and what activities can be done or sights that can be seen there.

Literature and Creative Arts –  Busting!
This week we will read Aaron Blabey’s book ‘Busting!’ and enjoy participating in lots of activities using rhyme and repetition.

Science – Push and Pull
On Tuesday we are going to push balls under water to feel what happens when the balls get pushed under. We will learn about the upward force provided by water and learn that the larger the ball the greater the force. We will also begin to learn about gravity, which pulls down on objects.

HIGE – Our World
This week we will learn that the weather and seasons are different in different countries depending on how near or far the country is to the equator.
