Diary of a caveman

In literacy, we’ve been writing diary entries as if we are the caveman from the Egg hunt animation. The key features we have been looking at are descriptive language, chronological order and first person writing.

We have also been focusing on full stops and using one connectives in a sentence! Here are some examples of our writing.

Wow!

A huge well done to Chloe, Sana and Casey for knowing the year 3 learn it’s back to front and inside out! They can tell me all the multiplication and division facts within 5 seconds, no wonder they’re doing such fantastic maths in class!
Keep practicing all the learn it’s we have had so far so you can recall them as quickly as these three amazing mathematicians!

Comparing lengths

Today we were using our great measuring skills to compare lengths using greater and less than symbols. A super well done to Tanika and Zaina especially for working so hard and moving on to comparing three different lengths. I was so pleased to hear the way they were reading the number sentences back to themselves and making changes if it wasn’t right.
