Our learning- what’s on

Dear families,

We hope you had a restful long weekend. We thought we would publish an overview of the upcoming learning in our level.

In Numeracy, we will be beginning a focus on subtraction and time. By the end of Year 1 students should know time using ‘o’ clock and half past, and Year 2 students should also know time at quarter past and quarter to by the end of the year.

In Writing we are continuing to focus on persuasive texts and stating your opinion.

In Reading we shall be working on the comprehension strategy, questioning.
