Math
We continued to learn our new unit on measurement. We reviewed how to use a ruler (starting at 0cm) 
We then moved on to perimeter (the distance around an object) 






Language 
Today we worked on what an opinion is. We discussed how you can give your opinion to others but you cannot force them to have the same opinion as you. Today we wrote our favourite food and 2 reasons why it is their favourite. Students were told to write their opinion in a way to persuade others to try their favourite food. 







Students then completed their weekly spelling words in their spelling work out books. 




UOI
Today students learned about the Day of the Dead 

Día de los Muertos 


students watched a short video describing this day and then listened to a story about it. After this students created their own day of the dead sugar skulls.
