Our Engglish and Science themes this term are SPACE related. Above is the brief that I hand out to students at the beginning of the theme, to be glued into their workbooks. Each English theme will last 3 weeks and cover creative writing, oral presentations, a listening activity, reading, a comprehention and poetry.
Using the Government prescribed skills to be covered by Grades 4-6, I have created these Oral & Writing rubrics which should cover most tasks. I may need to adjust them to fit more specific speaking tasks, like an interview scenario or writing a menu for example, but for now they cover what I need to assess.
