In English this week we continued reading Journey to Jo’burg (chapters 2 and 3). We looked at two sides of an argument, discussing within class whether the children should or shouldn’t stay at the orange farm. We then began to plan a persuasive letter and will write this within class next week. We also practised using speech marks, adverbs and contractions within our writing. 


In Science we enjoyed finding out about Alexander Graham Bell. We made our own paper cup phones and discovered that sound travels through solid mediums effectively.


In RE we read about Jesus’ baptism in the Bible and then watched an animation of this event. We enjoyed playing bingo while we watched the story and listened carefully for the listed key words.
