Shark Class Weekly Update

19 January 2024

The Sharks have been really getting back into the swing of things this week. Though things have been freezing outside, we’ve been running hot indoors with the efforts being put into all of our learning! 

In English, we have been continuing our cultural stories based upon Maha and the Elephants. This week the writing has been based around the strange behaviour of the elephants in the area, culminating with a mad dash through the jungle to high-ground as the tsunami sweeps across the beach. It has been very interesting to learn all about Thailand, Asian Elephants, and tsunamis in order to write an accurate narrative.

With Maths, we have started addressing the gaps in our learning highlighted by the baseline assessments. We spent the week really focusing on our basic multiplication and division skills in order to carry confidence through into the next few weeks where we will be challenging ourselves with new learning, looking at things in different ways and applying our multiplication and division skills to real world examples!

Finally, in Topic we have been looking at starting our Art unit where we are looking at print making and the work of local artist John Brunsden. We studied images of Mundesley beach from different perspectives and had a go at drawing some for ourselves.

Looking forward to next week where it all begins again!
