Term 2 2021

So far this term we looked at ANZAC Day. We have considered why this is a public holiday, what a dawn parade is and who we are remembering. We have explored vocabulary such as War Memorial, solemn, carve, bugle, medal, national anthem, dawn and dusk.

We are beginning to learn about walls, different types and their purpose. Alongside this we will exploring the characteristics of explanation writing.

We will be

  • sharing the reasons things happen. For example,  when ______ then_______
  • learning to use conjunctions that show cause and effect. For example: when, if, that, because
  • learning to use a variety of time connectives. For example: soon after that, eventually, earlier, occasionally.
  • learning to use technical words with regard to walls.  For example: partition, seperate, vertical and enclose.
