Our learning this week...

What a busy week we have had in Sapphire class! In English, we have been reading and comparing a range of recounts. We also planned an introduction for our own, based on a trip to the moon by Neil Armstrong. In maths, we have been reading, writing, ordering and comparing large numbers all the way up to 1,000,000!


Next week...

Next week in English, we will be continuing with our recounts and explaining what it was like to land on the moon. In maths, we will be rounding large numbers to the nearest, 10, 100 and 1000s.
