This week we have been multiplying and dividing decimals by 10,100,1000 and learning that the decimal point does not move, the numbers move to the left as they increase when you multiply and decrease when you divide.
We are continuing to learn the craft of discursive writing. We used a thinking routine called Tug of War to be able to show our opinion and justify it. We also practised manipulating model texts so that we could be more familiar with the structure and then write our own introductory paragraphs.
In reading, we read the next chapter of Kensuke’s Kingdom. We scanned the text for descriptive phrases of the island he has been stranded on and used this to draw an island based on this.
