Concept - Context and Representation
This term, Stage 2 students will explore the concepts 'Context and Representation'. Context refers to factors acting upon composers and responders that impinge on meaning. Representation is the depiction of a thing, person or idea in written, visual, performed or spoken language.
Stage 2 students will understand that texts can be responded to and composed differently in different personal, social and cultural contexts. They will also explore how representations are varied and reflect individual experiences and contexts.
Concept - Spatial Relationships
Through a range of hands-on, inquiry-based and explicit mathematical teaching, students will explore whole number, addition & subtraction, multiplication & division, data, two-dimensional space, angles and area. Instruction will be differentiated to ensure students build their understanding of mathematical concepts.
Concept - context and Representation
This term, students will explore the artforms of dance and visual arts. Students will explore movement using the elements of dance to communicate ideas, feelings or moods. Students will also use various construction techniques suited to the interpretation of selected subject matter in sculpture and in other three-dimensional work.
Concept - Connection
In Personal Development, Health and Physical Education, students will explore the contextual factors influencing personal choices and decisions around health, safety and physical activity. Students will also pose questions, test solutions and use problem-solving strategies to solve movement challenges.
In addition to completing Literature Circle activities each week, every Stage 2 child should be reading for at least 25 minutes per night. This can include a mix of quality literature and school-set texts.
The 20 Hour Challenge will also continue this term as students upload evidence towards their goals on Seesaw each week.
