Learning Focus


In Literacy this week the students built their understanding of sugar in drinks and the related health effects.  When reading the information texts they applied the strategy of scanning to detect key information.

In spelling the students used feedback from their Literacy books to begin updating their personal spelling lists and looking for common patterns.

The students also analysed the persuasive techniques and devices from within their own persuasive writing. Their persuasive writing was based on the topic ‘Graffiti – is it art or vandalism?’ Students also furthered their ability to self-edit and correct.
