WEEK THREE

Week three of term three sees the swimming program kick off. Two weeks of daily swimming lessons means we work around visits to the pool, and the ensuing tiredness which this generally entails. Our comprehension focus will shift to developing skills in questioning. Questions we ask before we read, during reading and after reading to deepen our understanding of text. We will have a continued focus on developing familiarity with the features of non fiction texts and locating information using tables of contents and the index. Writing tasks will focus on the appropriate use of question marks and questioning words who, what, when, where, why and how. Prep students will continue to work on counting strategies in maths, developing skip counting patterns and facility with efficient strategies for sorting and recording when counting collections.
