English “Where we are in place and time” (19 Feb – 13 April)

UOI – Where we are in place and time

Central Idea – The Earth’s physical geography determines the way it is explored and where settlement can be established

Semester 2 is now well on its way! I aim to continue supporting our HRT’s with the new UOI. We will have a look at exploration and focus of the exploration endeavors of a few of history’s most significant explorers.  We will be working towards our summative assessment at the end of the unit which will take the form of a newspaper article about the efforts of Robert Falcon Scott.  During the inquiry, we will focus on developing speaking and listening skills, reading skills and writing skills as well as relevant spelling, punctuation and grammar topics that will enable us to be successful with the end of unit assessment. The guided reading program will continue to improve the students’ reading and comprehension skills.
