Term 1 Week 4

Hi everyone,

Another brilliant week competed in Rowan Class.

In Literacy we've read further into our story: Kensuke's Kingdom.

We've now got up to the point where Michael seems to have convinced Kensuke that trying to leave the island might not be such a bad idea. Next week we'll pick up from Chapter 10. Throughout this week we've looked in detail at character and setting descriptions along with the various tools that we can use to help enhance these. We've also taken part in a debate to explore and dissect both Michael's and Kensuke's point-of-view.

In Maths both our Year 5's and Year 6's have been delving into negative numbers. Learning about adding and subtracting across zero, moving onto word problems towards the end of the week.

In topic we've looked further into our topic of 'classification', linking this to our story (Kensuke's Kingdom) by researching animals from one of the places that Michael visited for us to classify. We also researched the physical features that could be found on the Cape Verde islands (again linking to out story).

Have a great weekend everyone.

See you all Monday.

Kind regards,

Mr Askew and Mr Bowles
