LITERACY:  we have written up our own pet reports this week.  We had to introduce the text with a question to hook the reader in then we used heading, subheadings and fact boxes to help with the presentation and layout. We also had to include both coordinating and subordinating conjunctions to tick off our success criteria.  We have produced some fantastic reports!

NUMERACY:  we're comparing fractions this week.  We've been looking at the difference between unit fractions, such as: 1/2 and 1/4, where we have to look at the denominator to compare, and non-unit fractions such as 3/5
 
TOPIC:  we started to look at the American artist Georgia O'Keffe, her history and a few examples of her artwork. 

Singing singing singing! We have been practising a lot for the year 4 play.  The songs are sounding great!  Keep practising!
