Next week in Maths we will focus on multiplication on a number line (repeated add).
Next week in Topic we will learn about the cultures and traditions of the aboriginal Australians.
This week in Maths we have continued practicing our addition and subtraction skills. We talked about how addition is commutative (can be done in any order e.g. 13 + 10 = 23 and 10 +13 = 23) and how subtraction is not. We also learnt about the inverse (the relationship between addition and subtraction e.g. 13 + 10 = 23, 10 +13 = 23, 23-13=10 and 23-10=13). We also did some practice SATs style questions to see just how much we’d learnt at the end of the week.
In Topic this week we learnt all about the Great Barrier Reef. We began by doing a comprehension on the Great Barrier Reef where we learnt all some interesting facts as well as using our inference skills! Then we gathered some wonderful adjectives to describe the photos on our table. some of us practiced our thesaurus skills to make sure our adjectives were the best they can be. After that we planned a setting description by choosing some lovely sentence starters and acting out the sentences we would like to write. Finally we wrote and improved our description. Our teachers were very impressed by our writing this week!
Well done to all the children this week who have been working hard to be the best they can be! The teachers are so proud of all the hard work you do this week but below are some children who really stood out. Keep up the hard work!
