This week in topic we have started looking at the East Coast of Australia. We found out that Captain James Cook discovered the East Coast of Australia and the Great Barrier Reef in 1770. Next we located the Great Barrier Reef and discussed the features of it. We were very excited watching a clip of Nemo in the coral reef. From the video, we gathered some adjectives and created expanded noun phrases for our plan to describe Nemo. Finally we wrote a character description about Nemo.
This week in math we began looking at subtracting a two-digit number from a two-digit number that involves bridging. We achieved this by partitioning the number we were taking away into tens and ones. From the whole we then took away are tens and then took away the ones. Finally we used this to solve some word problems.
