Concept - Context and Representation
Through their examination of 'Context and Representation' students will explore texts from other cultures to analyse how personal understandings, beliefs and experiences are portrayed. They will learn ways to enhance their own texts by using strategies to assist readers' comprehension.
Concept - Spatial Relationships
The Stage 3 Mathematics program uses explicit teaching strategies and project-based learning to help students develop a well-rounded understanding of content and skills.
Through connections with our Geography unit, students will learn how to use position and data to share an understanding of a country.
In alignment with our visual arts program, students will learn how to transform and manipulate two-dimensional shapes.
To evaluate how a place can be enhanced, Stage 3 will be using our understandings of addition and subtraction, fractions and decimals, length, and area.
Concept - Place and Space
In Geography, students will be exploring the diversity of Asia and Australia's connections with Asia. This will include engaging in a case-study of Malaysia, examining its position, social and economic data, cultures, tourism and trade.
Parents can support their child in their home learning project to create their own case-study of a country. Please read the 'home learning' section below for more detail.
Concept - context and Representation
Stage 3 students will examine a range of artistic styles before using a design-thinking process to create a Vivid installation for Anzac Park exploring the question, 'How Do We Know?' This project will culminate in a Vivid festival evening to which Stage 3 families will be invited.
Concept - Connection
In Personal Development, Health and Physical Education, students will explore how having a healthy, safe and active lifestyle can enhance connections with others. This will involve evaluating the reliability of health information from different sources and exploring how media and people in the community influence personal attitudes, beliefs, decisions and behaviours. They will also be working cooperatively to solve movement challenges in physical activities, games and sports.
In our Geography unit, students will be supported to complete a case-study on Malaysia, by recognising its unique characteristics and connection with Australia. Their home learning project is to develop their own case study of a different country in Asia.
While this project is designed for students to independently complete, some parents and carers may find value in supporting their child to build more rich and multifaceted understandings.
