Here is what the girls have been doing this week:
English: They were working on alternative spellings for the sound “ai” – “ay” and “a_e”. Also, they had their first spelling test! The words for next week are:
cap, sack, pet, neck, hat, hen, rest
Math: More subtraction practice and number patterns revision. We are still struggling with it but making progress.
Science: The girls finished the topic on different materials. Next stop – animals!
Despite the rainy weather and mud, the Small School still had a great time at the Pumpkin Farm this week.
We pet and fed many animals, learned about different types of pumpkins and squash, and of course got to take home our very own pumpkins!
Check out our photo gallery for more pictures from the trip! 🙂

In English the students practiced action verbs and linking verbs. They played a game with verbs and nouns. They also learnt to express their opinion in writing.
In math this week we continue to practice and memorise the times table. The students learnt another way to multiply by 9: rounding up to x10 and then subtracting. They also learnt the strategy for multiplying multiples of 10.
In science we summed up and revised the unit about engineering and technology. The students drew their own designs and solved a test.
