Welcome back! This term, we are studying South America! 

This week, we have been reading 'The Vanishing Rainforest' and have written some excellent persuasive letters to the Nabe! In Maths, we have been exploring different methods of multiplication: partitioning, the area model and long multiplication. In Geography, we discovered the countries within South America and were able to label them on a map. In Science, we dissected a flower and are now able to name the different parts of a flowering plant. Next week, we'll be exploring the life cycle of a plant!



This week, we have been exploring fairy tales! We will be looking at two versions of Cinderella and writing our own version of Cinderella with a twist! In Maths, we have continued to work on long multiplication and have been working with some difficult word problems. In Geography, we explored climates of the world and found out about the different climate zones within South America. We explored a Brazilian artist called Beatriz Milhazes in art and we created our own Brazilian carnival music in music, which sounded excellent! We are looking forward to watching M and M productions on Friday!
