Maths

This week, we started our unit 4: Perimeter, Area and Polygons, which is about geometry and measurement. During the first two weeks starting this week, we will be focusing on the understanding of perimeter and area as well as on the skills of finding and measuring the perimeter and the area of 2D shapes. Please refer to the Unit 4 Parents Letter (Letter #2) for further information.

Literacy

Our Poetry unit has continued. The students have learned that poems are not just to read to self and enjoy- they are also a means to express ourselves. We continued exploring the messages and feelings from various poems and thought of ways to best describe and present them. The students also memorised their individually-selected poem and practiced for a recital, thinking how best they could present the poem’s message and rhythm.
