Week commencing 9th March 2020
We have been finishing off our information texts on the Rainforest this week. This has included writing paragraphs on The Forest Floor and The Canopy. Our main focus has continued to be adding adjective to the text map to make our writing exciting.
This week we have been looking at find a 1/2 and a 1/4 of number. We have been using the denominator to identify how many we are splitting the number between. For example, when find 1/2 of 12 we split 12 counters between 2 groups to find the answer, 6.
We explored the rainforest this week. We looked at all 4 layers and what it is like to be within them. We also looked at animals that lived within each layer. Our favourites were sleepy Sloths in the Canopy and sneaky Squirrel Monkeys in the Emergent.
