Week 7

I can't believe it is week 7 already, time is moving way too fast!!

This week we are practicing our assembly item for week 9 (keep that in your diaries)!!
We are working on improving our information reports that we started last week on our houses and have started using the formal addition algorithm.

With time constraints today, we haven't written in our diaries but the homework will involve the homework grid (spelling, reading and mental maths).  Mental maths this week is made of Day 5 from units 4, 5 and 6.  We will soon start subtraction strategies in the mental maths book but want to spend this week focused on the addition algorithm without working on subtraction at home. Students will also bring home a 9 times tables fortune teller to make and practice their times tables!

On a different note, if anybody has two halves of a coconut we could use, please let me know as we need them for our assembly.

Thanks for your ongoing support
