This Friday is field day. It is from 12:55 to 2:45, on the sports field. Parents are welcome to come and watch.
This week, readers will develop their understanding of text structures. So far, they have learned about ‘boxes and bullets’ and ‘comparing and contrasting’. They will now learn about the ’cause and effect’ and ‘problem and solution’ text structures. The attached PDF gives an overview of these different text structures. If you wish to support with this work at home, you could ask your child what structures their home reading books use.
We are a little behind with our maths work due to practising for our assembly during the maths time last week. That means we are on the same lessons as last week. Today, we completed lesson 1 from topic A of module 6, found here: EngageNY Maths, Topic A, Module 6, Lesson 1
Tomorrow, we will work on lesson 2 and so on throughout the week.

This week, students will study how to make a disaster plan that would be enacted due to a natural disaster. After learning the key elements of a disaster plan (meeting locations both inside and outside the community, lists of necessary resources, etc.), students will make their own disaster plan. They will get to choose whether the plan will be for use at school or at home and they will also choose the type of disaster that it should be used for (perhaps one plan could be used for different types of disasters?) If you wish to support this work at home, the following video will give you more information about what should be included on the disaster plan: Prepare a Family Emergency Plan | Disasters
