Life cycle writing - Weeks 4 & 5

The Tui Team writing focus this term is explanation and informative writing. For the last couple of weeks, we have been working really hard on writing about a life cycle of an insect or frog. We had the option of choosing a butterfly, ladybug, mosquito or frog. We found out heaps of interesting information along with life cycle facts. Take a look at some of our writing samples below and leave a comment if you wish!

Along with the support of the clip and image above,  I have attached a helpful site to consolidate fraction knowledge. There is an abundance of fraction games to support new knowledge.

Supporting your child at home with school maths and extending their numeracy knowledge

It is important for parents to help support their child with their maths learning, so your child can retain the learning from school and to help them to be successful. A lot of the time parents don't know where to start with helping their child because the strategies are different from what they did at school.  The area where students need the most support is with numeracy knowledge such as basic facts, place value, forwards and backwards number sequence etc.  Here is a link to an awesome math site of ways you can help support your child with their school maths at home.

Alongside this great e-learning tool, there are also other programmes that support Place Value and Basic Fact knowledge.
