Kincumber PS Stage 3 2018

Welcome to Stage 3.

 

We have a wonderful team of teachers this year working with the students in Stage 3. Our highly skilled team of teachers includes Ms Andrew, Mrs. Stafford, Mrs Kennedy, Mrs Bullock and Mr. Logue.

 

The students have made a great start to 2018 and have quickly settled into the new year.

 

In English we will be looking at the purpose and audience of the different text types in writing. 3A and 3L will also be completing a novel study using "Hitlers Daughter"

 

In Mathematics Stage 3 will be covering the following areas:

  • Whole Number
  • Addition and Subtraction
  • Data
  • Multiplication and Division
  • Time
  • Position
  • Length

 

 

Our integrated unit of inquiry will be "Ethics And Emotions"

 

During this unit students track their emotions and consider ethical dilemmas. They experience new things and learn about social, emotional and physical challenges during adolescence.

 

The Essential Questions during this unit are:

  • What are the social, emotional and physical challenges experienced during adolescence?
  • How can the social, emotional and physical challenges experienced during adolescence be managed?
  • What are ethical dilemmas and ethical principles?

 

As a result of their work during this unit of inquiry it is hoped that the students will have a greater capacity to maintain their equilibrium throughout puberty. It is also hoped that the students will have a repertoire of strategies that support the maintenance of their sense of self-worth and wellbeing.

 

We are all looking forward to an amazing year working with Stage 3 to achieve their goals.
