This week in maths children in Year 6 have been checking and consolidating our formal methods of column addition and subtraction. We then had an attempt at some difficult two step problems involving both addition and subtraction. We found we had to read the questions very carefully before deciding which operation to choose. An example is found below.
In Year 6 this week we finished watching and reading Rabbit Proof Fence. It was a very emotional ending and we took how the story made us felt and turned it into a diary entry from the perspective of Molly. In our recount we had to make sure that we used simple, compound and complex sentences. We used our story maps and feelings graph to help us write our recount.
Stars of the Week
I was being cooperative and a great communicator when conducting investigations
I am a star because this week I have been both adaptable and resilient!
I am a star for showing resilience with all of my work and also inspiring others to read.
I am respectful to all those around me. That's why I am this week's star.
Next week though we would like you to discus Pchum Ben.
What is it? What does it mean to you and your family? What happens in Phnom Penh during this time?
