English

In English students learnt about narrative writing. They prepared drafts of the story and compared and contrasted characters. Later on they analized different types of sentences: statements, questions, commands and exclamatory questions.

Math

In math we worked on some complex word problems which combined addition and multiplication. We also did a little revision of place value. The students learnt to round to the nearest hundred. Finally we entered the topic of multiplication as a repeated addition.

Science

In science we talked about measuring matter, what different aspects of matter can we measure? What tools and units do we use for mass, length, temperature, volume and time? The students could play with and learnt to use magnifying glasses, microscopes and balance pans.
