Term 3 in a Glimpse
We are at the end of term 3. Alhamdulillah, this term has flown by so quickly. We had a very eventful term. Thank you to all parents of year 1s for your continued support. Together with your support, we are able to do our part of teaching our students to be the best version of their selves. In term 3, we had the following events:
In Literacy this term we developed our 7 steps writing skills focusing particularly on persuasive writing. They also did Literacy rotations every morning after warm ups. In their rotations, they practiced their spelling words, sentence structure, handwriting, reading eggs and sharp reading with their teacher. During sentence structure, the children have been practicing writing sentences in the present, past and future tens along with the use of punctuation.
In Science we explored and our understanding about biological sciences, which included learning about different living animals and different parts of their bodies, as well as looking into their habitats. This term we also focused our time for our STEM projects, which will be exhibited on term 4.
In Health we learnt about keeping safe and expressing our emotions in a safe and cohesive way. We participated in lots of discussions. Year 1s also learnt about friendship, how we can make friends, how should we behave with our friends.
In Art this term we explored the use of visual arts. This time round we turned our focus to a famous children’s author and illustrator, Eric Carle. We focused on the different illustrating techniques used by Eric in his many beautiful books. The children enjoyed collaging and applying lots of beautiful strategies to make gorgeous pieces of art.
