In our writing sessions we are learning about persuasive texts and how to structure our writing. We think that persusaive writing is to persuade or argue a case, for or against, a particular point of view. We have been dabating on all different topics such as
- Should students wear uniforms to school?
- Do cats make a better pet than dogs ?
- Should chilren do all the cooking at home?
- Are books better than TV?
If you have any opinons or arguements on these topics or have some new topics for us to debate on that would be great and let us know!!
Our brand new reading strategy for the next two weeks is Recalling Facts and Details. Recalling Facts and Details help to explain the Main Idea. The facts and details can be found in the who, what when, how and what in a story.
What facts and details have you found?
This week our lovely star of the week is Pehansa. Pehansa always tries her best, helps those around her and is very kind.

This week we are looking at 2 digit addition in maths. We have been discussing adding the tens column together and the ones to get our answer.
What are you learning about in Maths?
This week we have been focusing on a new reading focus / strategy. The strategy is ‘Finding the Main Idea’ we believe that finding the main idea is about discovering the most importnt part of the story or text. You can find the main idea in the first sentence, the last sentence or by thinking about the text.
What books have you read lately and what was the main idea?????
