Class 4 Blog 2nd October 2015

This week in Class 4, we have been doing dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. It's ben hard but we got through it! We also multiplied by 10, 100 and 1000 last week. We have been practising this for two weeks now.

For Geography, we had a very tricky task. We had to trace over South America, then draw the countries lines. After we had to colour the climate and then write sentences about each countries climate. e.g. Brazils climate is tropical rainforest. We had to be very careful when tracing as the climates were in different countries.

In english, we imagined we were on the boat that was going through the chocolate room. We had to use our senses to describe the room as well as using similies and metaphors.
