Week 1:

In English we have started to read our focus text Oliver and the Seawigs by Philip Revee. We used our inference skills to make predictions about the plot of the story. 

In Maths we have learned how to convert fractions into decimals and how to add whole numbers to decimals.

In Art we have learned the artistic method of hatching and cross hatching and have used our art tecniques to create underwater sences from Oliver and the Seawigs.
