Literacy 

We are currently reading 'There's a boy in the girls bathroom'. The book brings up issues around friendship and how we see ourselves and others. We have had many class disscusions: what makes a good friend, is quality or quantity more important in friendship and how do we influence how others view us. We have discussed the effects of authors language and punctuation choices and how they contribute to the overall meaning. 

 

Numeracy 

In maths we have been working on developing our systematic probelm solving skills and also how we can explain our reasoning. These are vital skills to develop now we have a good understanding of the number system. 

Science

In science we have been learning about electricity. 

 

We needed to be able to:

 

  • Compare and give reasons in how various components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the position of switches 
  • used recognised symbols to draw a circuit diagram
