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.

2021 T3 Numeracy Stage 1 - 4

We begin counting forward and back to 10, then to 20, then to 100. Within our range that we are learning we learn the number before and after. We learn facts to 5 such as 1+4, 0+5, 2+3, 3+2 etc. We need instant recall of these facts/number bonds. We then move to learning facts with 5 eg 5+2, 5+4 and then facts to 10 eg 7+3, 6+4.
Learning then moves to doubles 3+3 firstly to ten and then to 20. We learn to use our doubles in relation to 1/2s and subtraction eg 6-3.

2021 T3 Reading Level 1

At NE level we are learning that the picture in the book relates to the text, the difference between letters and words, and how we can use the picture and the beginning and end sound of the word to help us decipher the text. We point to each word as we read them. This helps us to recognise different words. We learn about the different parts of the book eg front cover, title page back cover, author and illustrator. We slowly start learning some high frequency words (HFW) such as I, is, to, the, am, and etc. Sometimes we write them on a white board in reading.

We will look at narrative for our literacy focus this term. The basic purpose of narrative is to entertain, to gain and hold a readers' interest. However narratives can also be written to teach or inform, to change attitudes/social opinions eg soap operas and television dramas that are used to raise topical issues. Narrative stories set up one or more problems, which must eventually find a way to be resolved.
