What a first week back! 


In maths, we have started our new unit of work: Statistics. We have been making and interpreting tally charts and pictograms. Show someone at home what you can do:


In English, we have been celebrating 'World Book Week' all week! We have started our new chapter book in class: Mac B. Kid Spy and have been completing some work around that. Can you tell someone at home what has happened in the book so far? 

We wrote a missing poster for the Queen's jewels at the beginning of the week after reading chapter 1. We thought about all the things we need to include to make it a super, descriptive poster. We included adjectives, adverbs, questions, a title, conjunctions and a picture. They were fantastic!

Later in the week, we wrote a letter from Mac B. to his family explaining what had happened to him. Can you tell someone at home what wrote about in your letter? We made sure we included lots of adjectives, adverbs and time conjunctions. 


In topic, we have been learning about Australia's biodiversity. Can you remember what that means? Biodiversity is all the different kinds of life you'll find in one area—the variety of animals, plants, fungi, and even microorganisms like bacteria that make up our natural world. Each of these species and organisms works together in ecosystems to maintain balance and support life. 

We have been exploring the different ecosystems around Australia and some of the plants and animals that live there. Australia is one of the most biologically diverse countries on the planet. It is home to more than one million species of plants and animals, many of which are found nowhere else in the world. Can you tell someone at home what you might find in the Australian desert, grasslands, rainforest and ocean? 


Well done on a super first week back, Owls!
