This week, we have been writing biographies in English about author Anthony Horowitz. We have researched his life and found out what inspired him to write. Many of the children have taken books from our ‘Featured Author’ area to read his work.
In maths, we have been learning about negative numbers and using our knowledge to reason and problem solve.
In geography, Year 5 improved their map reading skills by identifying symbols and finding out what they mean. They focused on their local area to see what they could find.
In science, we learnt about night and day. We saw how we can tell the time by using shadows and how the sun’s position changes in our sky. The children then wrote explanations of why this happens.
Next week, you have the opportunity to join us in our classroom twice! Our class mass is on Wednesday and the children will be bringing home invitations for you today. On Friday, we have our Harvest Festival Assembly, followed by a celebration morning. We will be sharing all of the exciting things we have learnt about Australia.
As it is One World Week next week, a creative homework for the whole school has been given. If you would like to consolidate some of this week’s class objectives, home learning has been supplied on SPAG.COM and Mathletics.
