This term in reading students will continue to develop their comprehension skills (predicting, summarising, inferring, making connections, evaluating, questioning and clarifying).

Investigating sound - In this unit of learning children will investigate how sounds are made. They will identify how sounds are made, associating some of them with something vibrating and recognise that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear. They will investigate different patterns between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that produce it. They will find patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produce it as well as recognise that sounds get fainter as the distance from the sound source increases.
