Language Arts & Maths
This week we took our ACER/ISA Exams in English and Mathematic literacy.
This week we learned about the Water Cycle.
This week, on Friday, we went Ice Skating at Zimowy Narodowy. Pictures will be uploaded to IAS website.
Many children were sick last week, and so we slowed down the pace and did some revision. We practised doing subtractions, and we practised counting to 50. We read short phrases and we learned to read and write words from the high frequency list. We are making good progress at learning about dinosaurs. We sang our favourite songs, and we are learning a new one about dinosaurs. On Friday we made a delicious orange salad. Very little was left of the 15 oranges we prepared!
