This week in Bee Class we have:

  • Practiced short and long multiplication and division, and learnt how to find fractions of amounts in Maths
  • Learnt how authors create cohesion in an information text through a range of methods: using rhetorical questions, the repetition of key words and writing in the same tense but using different verb forms.
  • In Science, we have revised our understanding of genetic inheritance and looked into the Nature/Nurture debate.
  • We have also started a new Topic on Natural resources, practised Yoga and mindfulness.

Well done to our Netballers, Footballers and Runners this week – good results all round they are representing the school really well.
