Happy days with the weather like it is. I hope you had a great weekend in the outdoors.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“A father is someone you can look up to no matter how tall you grow.”
FATHER’S DAY BREAKFAST
Just a reminder that the Father’s Day Breakfast is this Friday. It would be great to see as many dads as possible. If you can’t make it, rest easy knowing that I will take good care of your bacon and egg roll!

This week, our reading focus is ‘synthesising’. Synthesising is about adding what you’ve read, to all the knowledge that’s already in your brain and coming up with a better understanding of a particular topic. We most often synthesise when we read non-fiction texts.
The children are currently writing the final copy of their information report.
This week, we will be learning about ‘interpreting data’.
