Year 3 Unit of Inquiry 2 OverviewUnit of Inquiry 2 HOW WE ORGANISE OURSELVES: An inquiry into the interconnectedness of human-made systems and communities; the structure and function of organizations; societal decision-making; economic activities and their impact on human kind and the environment. Central Idea A variety of signs and symbols facilitate local and global communications. Concepts Form, Connection Related concepts Culture, Media Learner Profile Focus: Communicator, Thinker Attitude Focus: Independence, Commitment Lines of Inquiry  Different signs and symbols (form)  Reasons for the development of communication systems (connection)  Specialised communication systems including maps Maths Number Calculation  Find complements to 100, solving number equations such as 78 +  = 100  Add and subtract pairs of two-digit numbers  Add three-digit and two-digit numbers using notes to support  Re-order an addition to help with the calculation, e.g. 41 + 54, by adding 40 to 54, then 1  Add/subtract single-digit numbers to/from three-digit numbers  Find 20, 30, … 90, 100, 200, 300 more/less than three-digit numbers  Understand the relationship between halving and doubling Geometry Shapes and Geometric Reasoning  Identify, describe and draw regular and irregular 2D shapes including pentagons, hexagons, octagons and semi-circles  Classify 2D shapes according to the number of sides, vertices and right angles  Draw and complete 2D shapes with reflective symmetry and draw reflections of shapes (mirror line along one side)  Relate 2D shapes and 3D solids to drawings of them  Identify 2D and 3D shapes, lines of symmetry and right angles in the environment  Identify right angles in 2D shapes Position and Movement  Use the language of position, direction and movement, including clockwise and anti-clockwise  Find and describe the position of a square on a grid of squares where the rows and columns are labelled  Use a set square to draw right angles  Compare angles with a right angle and recognise that a straight line is equivalent to two right angles Problem Solving Using techniques and skills in solving mathematical problems  Check the results of adding two numbers using subtraction, and several numbers by adding in a different order  Check subtraction by adding the answer to the smaller number in the original calculation  Recognise the relationships between different 2D shapes Using understanding and strategies in solving problems  Identify simple relationships between shapes, e.g. these shapes all have the same number of lines of symmetry Language Phonics, Spelling and Vocabulary   Use effective strategies to tackle segmenting unfamiliar words to spell, including segmenting into individual sounds, separating into syllables, using analogy, identifying known suffixes and prefixes, applying known spelling rules, visual memory, mnemonics. Learn rules for adding -ing, -ed, -s to verbs. Grammar and Punctuation      Collect examples of nouns, verbs and adjectives, and use the terms appropriately. Understand that verbs are necessary for meaning in a sentence. Maintain accurate use of capital letters and full stops in showing sentences. Continue to improve consistency in the use of tenses. Ensure grammatical agreement of pronouns and verbs in using standard English. Reading  Read and follow instructions to carry out an activity. Writing  Establish purpose for writing, using features and style based on model texts. Speaking and Listening  Take turns in discussion, building on what others have said.  Listen and remember a sequence of instructions. Physical Education Students will focus on basic striking skills used in a variety of games including Tennis, Tee Ball and Cricket. Students will:  focus on applying quality movement skills to a variety of settings  participate in breaking down the rules before playing these games  be encouraged to develop some tactical understanding of the games with their peers Art Mandarin Focus: Line and Shape  Family members  Body parts and basic adjectives  How to describe people by using Body parts and basic adjectives Vietnamese Language and Culture (VLC) Language focus: Fruits and colours Year 3 will continue their next VLC topics with Fruits and Colours. During VLC lessons, the students will learn how to name different fruits and colours in Vietnamese. One of their tasks is to apply their newly learnt vocabularies about fruits and colours to describe their favourite fruits. The students will also learn simple conversation for purchasing fruits in Vietnamese. Culture focus: Floating Markets Year 3 will inquire into the culture of Vietnamese Floating Markets consisting of long boats loaded with fruits, vegetables, flowers and other goods in The Mekong Delta. Ms Naomi Stewart Ms Kellie Packer Mr Ben Mansell Ms Alex Andrews Year 3 Teachers Thu Thiem Campus Year 3 Teachers Thao Dien Campus Central Idea: Everything in our lives is created using lines and shapes. Skills:  Using line to create expression  Differentiating free-form organic and geometric shapes  Drawing from observation Concepts:  Artists use lines to create a mood.  Objects in real life are either free-form organic or geometric shapes.  Combining a variety of geometric shapes in one artwork creates a complex geometric design. Vietnamese National Curriculum (VNC) In unit 2, year 3 VNC will be continued on the 3 topics: Teacher/ grandparents / parents. Through these students will have chances to learn new vocabulary, new grammatical points, how to write a paragraph ……as well as review the phonic. Music Students will develop their Music notation and performance skills focusing on the Music Elements of Duration (staying time to a steady beat) and Pitch (recognizing high and low notes). They will learn melodies on the Glockenspiels and Xylophones and songs connected to their Unit of Inquiry. Melodies and songs will include The polkadots 'Communication' and 'Time to Know',
