Classroom Update

We are nearing the end of term 1 which means that report cards will be going home soon.  We have been busy in our classroom working on the following:

Math - Our focus for this month is multiplication and division. Students are encouraged to practice at home whenever they have the chance.  We will also be exploring fractions before the term is finished.  

Language - We have just finished Recount writing and we will be beginning narrative in the next two weeks.  We continue to improve our reading comprehension with short stories and various texts. The class is thoroughly enjoying our novel study Charlotte's Web. There have been some great class and group discussions examining the characters, setting and plot of the story.  

Science - We are studying Forces (push and pull) and will be doing a number of experiments around that theme in the next few weeks.  

Portfolios will be sent home in the next few days so that you can take a look at the various tasks and assignments that your child has completed.  Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to send a note or give me a call.
