P5HW learning this week 9/11/18

Today’s reflective week was written together .

Maths 

We have begun a topic on Money.

We are learning different addition strategies in numeracy including column addition and in mental maths we have been using empty number lines.

 

Literacy 

In literacy this week we have continued to look at similes and metaphors and how they are different from each other.

We are also really enjoying our class novel The Explorer.

In Literacy Circles we shared our learning on our new books in our groups.

Languages

In Mandarin we made a booklet about Chinese numbers.  It was lots of fun!  We were counting beyond 10.

Topic – The Rainforest

We have been continuing with our fact files about animals in tropical Rainforests.  We drew some of the animals we have researched and we are also working on presenting the Rainforest as part of our Assembly.

Assembly

We have been practising out assembly on Broomlee and the Rainforests. We been learning how to work together cooperatively and share our learning in an interesting and informative way.

It is all coming together nicely. Please find the link to our Rainforest song below:
