This week is a special week in Australia and New Zealand. On Thursday we pause to remember all those people past and present who are a part of our defense forces who sacrificed so much so that we can enjoy the level of freedom we have in our countries. We will have a special assembly on Wednesday and the official public holiday with no school on Thursday.
Despite our shortened week we still have a lot of work to do this week. Here is a outline of what we will be covering this week in class.
This week’s spelling focus is the ‘i before e’ rule.

A: shield, piece, field, thief, view
B: briefly, achieve, mischief, fierce, fiercely
c: unbelievable, achievable, believing, receive, receipt
We will continue to look at persuasive texts this week and will be anaylsing some of the strategies Authors use to be more persuasive, including showing opposing points of view, using emotive language, appealing to audiences emotions and asking rhetorical questions.
All the things we focus on in our reading hour we will putting into practice when are in our writing workshops. We will be using the persuasive strategies we learn about in reading to help us write very powerful pieces of writing.
Multiplication and Fractions are our topics of the week. Don’t forget to collect anything you can find that has anything to do with fractions. We will be making a class display-photo’s are OK as well.
