Our Star Learner this week is Finley, who has impressed us with his focus in Literacy and good humour. We are very proud of him.
This week in Literacy we have been reading 'Jade's Party'. Our big write has involved writing an invitation using a variety of descriptive vocabulary within noun phrases and the use of commas within a list.
Please ensure you read for five minutes each day with your child, prioritising the RWI book that corresponds with our class book.
Please could you take a look on the bookshelf or elsewhere and return any books originating from school. It is very important all RWI books are returned as these are critical to our program and in very short supply.
The children have been working hard on their knowledge of place value. They are beginning to understand how numbers can be partitioned into tens and ones and how this can help us to draw conclusions when we compare numbers against each other. Please check the link from last week to review this learning with your child.
We have been studying the UK for the past couple of weeks and the children have learnt about its component countries, capitals and some of the human and physical features of each country. The children created their own maps (as seen in the assembly) using collage and did a fantastic job.
Next Week...Assessments and Science
Next week will be assessment week and we will continue our work on plants.
Have a good weekend!
Mrs Budiman and Miss Heffer
