    Dear Leah,
    I finally figured out how to write messages on the blog XD.
    Anyways I know what the word Cacophony means… Using a harsh
    sound. Oh there’s another thing, I was wondering if we can write
    two words of the week because I want to get more points.Wait
    one more thing can i have my maths homework book back I need
    more homework. I actually like homework. πŸ™‚

    And one more thing how did you make that face πŸ™‚ πŸ™ :'(


    • March 16th, 2016 at 10:37 am      Reply 56leah Says:

      Hi Johnny,

      It’s so great to have you writing on the blog! πŸ˜‰ In answer to your question about that face, you’ve already made it – just check out the comment that I’ve just posted. πŸ˜‰

      I won’t post your comments of the ‘Words of the Week’ definitions until Friday, but be assured that I’ve got them and they’re spot on! Well done! πŸ™‚

      We’re going to be doing Daily 5 tomorrow and will be focusing on using punctuation phrasing and prosody. Sounds interesting, right? It just means that punctuation helps us include expression and add interest when we’re reading out loud. I’ll explain more tomorrow. We’ll also do some Word Work (practising your spelling words), Read to Self (focusing on your reading goal) and Read to Someone (focusing on phrasing and prosody). So much to do! πŸ˜‰

      In Maths, we won’t be doing square roots yet, but I will make sure that we do them at some stage this year. If you already know what they are, you’ll be able to teach others, which will be fantastic. We’re going to continuing with vertical multiplication tomorrow.

      Looking forward to seeing you at school tomorrow,

      Leah πŸ˜‰

    Butyraceous means containing or resembling butter.

    Abode. I found 2 meanings for this
    1. A place in which one lives or one’s home. For example “When I go camping my abode is a tent.”
    2. Past tense of abide which means to put up with or comply with. For example
    She abode by the court’s ruling

    Exploit. I also found 2 meanings for this word
    1. A notable deed especially one that is heroic
    Captain Cook’s exploits in the pacific are well known.

    2. To take advantage of a person or situation as in
    The students might exploit the teacher’s absence by misbehaving.

    Here are some words I think might be good for words of the week:
    Dyslexia
    Moult
    Oscillate
    Ambulatory

      Hmmm……….this is not a real word, Nashir. It was made up for the movie, ‘Mary Poppins’. I know that you really want this as a ‘Word of the Week’, but maybe you could find another word that is challenging for both you and the rest of the class.

    Camoflauge means disguising a space


    • May 15th, 2016 at 6:12 am      Reply 56leah Says:

      Great work, Johnny! πŸ˜‰ I’m impressed that you’ve had a go at finding out what the word for last week means. However, I think you might be a bit confused about the actual definition. To camouflage something certainly means that it’s disguised, but it’s more to do with an object, person or animal, rather than a space. Don’t worry, you’ve still got points for your Table Team, as I’m very impressed that you had a really good go at telling me what it means.
