Managing self

This competency is associated with self-motivation, a “can-do” attitude, and with students seeing themselves as capable learners. It is integral to self-assessment.

Students who manage themselves are enterprising, resourceful, reliable, and resilient. They establish personal goals, make plans, manage projects, and set high standards. They have strategies for meeting challenges. They know when to lead, when to follow, and when and how to act independently.

We will look to develop skills, strategy and knowledge around multiplication this term. For some students this will be a focus on learning how to skip count in 2's, 5's and 10's, and the relationship between skip counting and times tables/division facts. For others, there will be more of a focus on learning the times tables basic facts off by heart, practising using these in meaningful contexts and beginning to develop knowledge around how to use the written method to solve multiplication problems with bigger numbers.

We will find out about some of the significant artists and art movements that have influenced how we see our world, explore the styles and techniques they used to create their art works and experiment with making our own art works. There will be lots of opportunities for rich discussion as we consider what is art? Why do humans through time and across cultures feel the need to make it? What do people use art for? What are our own opinions about the different styles of art we see?
