We’ve been learning to notice the difference between a normal question AND a rhetorical question.
See if you can spot the difference between these questions:
- How are you? (Radhvi)
- What is a party without lollies?! (Alexander)
- What would it be like, to do homework all night long without a rest? (Oscar D & Anya)
- When is your birthday? (Lewis)
- How would you like it, if you were up to your knees in muck?! (Tom)
Now, try and persuade your teacher to ban HOMEWORK using a rhetorical question!!!! We just might ban it if they’re persuasive enough! 🙂 Leave your rhetorical questions in the comment box below!!
Author Elizabeth Honey and Jess visited some of the Grade 3/4’s today. They worked with us to make a great story about a flying pig. There was loads of colour and movement in the show.
We made a movie of the story/play.
We’re in the Cross Country Running Training Group that meets every Tuesday at 8:30am to run.
We run for half an hour, up and down hills and around the St James’ Park – running 4 laps! The Year 3/4s run 4 laps and Year 5/6s run 5.
Sam, Dylan and Olivia give us running tips and encourage us to run and get fit!
Every Wednesday, we have the sorest legs from all the running!!
It’s really fun, we’d like to run next Term too!
Who’s part of our running group? Do you like it?

Thank you for participating in this important National Event today.
How did you come to school today?
Or did you come to school some other way?
We are learning many different ways to add quickly and accurately.
One way is to ‘make a ten’.
If we were adding 7 and 5
we would take 3 (from the 5) and add it to the 7, now we have a ten!
Now add on the 2 left over, we have 12
Happy adding, from 34K
