This morning we did English and read Grendel: A Cautionary Tale about Chocolate. Mrs Johanson read us a bit of the story and we had to storyboard what might happen next.
After break we did maths and we learnt how to measure straight lines in cm and mm. We are getting very good at this and instead of writing 8cm 4mm we are now up levelling this to 8.4cm.

Today we finished off our treats for our cafe. We worked in groups to role play our jobs for the chocolate cafe and then in the afternoon the real cafe started!
Lots and lots of customers arrived and we were very, very busy. We did not expect that running the cafe would be this hard. There were lots and lots of orders but the food was very tasty. Here are some photos!
We have been very busy in art today because we designed our own rainforest dioramas. It was fun and we had to think about using the right materials. We had to draw the outline of a tree, cut it out and then stick it to our Rainforest diorama’s.

This morning we worked very hard on our story big writes. We watched a video of a boy who visits a museum to look at dinosaur fossils. It was up to us continue and finish the story. Here are just a few of our superb sentences:
Suddenly a dart of light plummets onto James’ hand… (Molly)
…as he fled, the dinosaur got closer and closer… (Annie)
Suddenly Tom saw a creepy skeleton magically come to life! (Josh)
…the dino’s made a tactile decision to find and capture James… (Nicholas)
This morning we finished our rainforest dictionary then we lined up in alphabetical order.
We did maths and we made some clocks to help us tell the time. We learnt that in one hour there are 60 minutes and in half an hour there are 30 minutes.
