I hope you all had a fantastic break and enjoyed the time spent with your children and families.

We are straight back into it this week with learning focussed activities well under way.

This week in Literacy:

We are learning how to sequence and retell a story, using details from the text in our retells.
We are focussing on using FLOW CHARTS as an aid, as well as the Retelling Hand. We are expanding our vocabularly focussing on nouns and using adjectives to make our retells more interesting.

Our Focus Stories are:

Bringing the Rain to the Kapiti Plain and Handa's Hen

This week in Maths:

We are consolidating our numbers to 100 - identifying one more and one less than any number to 100. We are recording these as number sentences using +1 and -1.
We are learning to count in 10s and will beginning to identify 10 more and 10 less of any number to 100. We will use the Hundreds Chart to help us identify these numbers.

This week in IPC:

Throughout this term we are focussing some of our IPC time on Learning about Learning. We are learning about how our brain works, how it learns, and what strategies we can use to make our brains stronger. We will be learning about what a Growth Mindset is, why challenges help us and the importance of perservering!
