Yet another busy week in 5/6C! This week for our unit of addition and subtraction, we looked at adding together different fractions. Some worked on making and adding fractions with related denominators, while others worked on adding together fractions with similar or unrelated denominators. We have been looking at comparing texts on the same topic in reading this week. We looked at different webpages, how they are set out and what features they have. In writing we continued learning about writing information reports, so far we have written about the inner workings of the computer and our made up 'flanimals.' Next up we'll be focusing on a natural disaster of choice and writing an in depth report on that. In integrated we continued looking at natural disasters, focusing on volcanic eruptions and avalanches. Next week we will begin our projects!
Homework this week requires a bit of maths, following directions and creativity. Please see the homework tab to download the instructions.
