    In Geography we have been learning about hot and countries. We have used globes, atlases and compasses to find different continents in the world. We found out that the hottest countries are near the equator because it is closest to the sun.

     

    Literacy

    This term we have been expanding our vocabulary. We explored dictionaries and looked for key features of a dictionary. We found that dictionaries are ordered in alphabetical order and they tell us the meaning of a word. Some children looked for words using the dictionary and we ordered some words in alphabetical order.

     

    Maths

     

     

    In Maths we have been looking at solving addition and subtraction problems. In our classes we learnt to use number lines to jump forward to add and backwards to subtract. We learnt to use our fingers to solve maths stories mentally.
