Crete and Santorini Blog: Week Beginning: 1.10.18

Welcome to Crete and Santorini class,

This week in Numeracy we have been very busy focusing on the multiples of 10 using our multiplication and division skills. We have also learnt how to measure weight using grams and kilograms.   

In Literacy we have been continuing on with learning about Non-Fiction books and focusing on the features of Non-Fiction text. We have also been learning how to apply some of these features and write short notes from information that we have researched.  

This week in Science we will be learning about different types of materials that are used to make musical instruments and why.   

For further information on home learning please see the attached template. Information regarding spellings please refer to the first published blog.
