Central Idea:

Different approaches to collaboration influence the productivity of groups

The children will be inquiring into:

Shared goals in group situations (connection)

Skills and behaviour that support collaboration (responsibility)

The impact of their behaviour on a shared goal (reflection)

Next week the children will complete a summative assessment to show their learning from Unit 1.


                    Next week we will continue our exploration of Shape, symmetry and location.

Central Idea:

Shapes and vocabulary are useful for representing and describing objects in real-world situations

Lines of Inquiry

  • Sort, describe, compare and label regular and irregular two dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects using appropriate vocabulary
  • Construct three-dimensional objects and recognise them in different orientations
  • Identify and draw lines of reflective symmetry in patterns, pictures and shapes



And if the moon could talk…..
