Participating and contributing

This competency is about being actively involved in communities. Communities include family, whānau, and school and those based, for example, on a common interest or culture. They may be drawn together for purposes such as learning, work, celebration, or recreation. They may be local, national, or global. This competency includes a capacity to contribute appropriately as a group member, to make connections with others, and to create opportunities for others in the group.

Students who participate and contribute in communities have a sense of belonging and the confidence to participate within new contexts. They understand the importance of balancing rights, roles, and responsibilities and of contributing to the quality and sustainability of social, cultural, physical, and economic environments.

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.

Alongside our small group lessons, we will use Maths Buddy online tasks, with Seesaw tasks, games, worksheets and book work for additional activities that support and enhance our learning.

We are learning to use imaging, counting on and counting back as well as using skip counting to solve repeated addition problems.
