This Week in our reading groups we have been reading about Roland Fish rises up.
I rate this story a... 5 I think that that this story is really interesting.
I have just read Roland Fish Rises Up. It is a story about Roland Fish who always got bullied by another boy named named Tim'O'Malley.
This was very interesting because At the start of the book Roland Fish was the victim and Tim'O'Malley Was the bully but when it got to the end Roland Fish was the Bully and Tim was the victim.
The Best part of the story was when Roland Fish stood up for himself at the end when Tim was Teasing him.
Today during maths time we have been learning Subtraction place value in our group (Highanders) here is an example of what we have been learning.

We are still learning to fold the cartons, there is a little motto that is used to fold the cartons which is " Drink It Dry " "Fold It Flat " " And Send it Back .When we are finished folding our cartons we have to put the folded cartons into the blue bins. Harriet , Chloe And I did a rap in front of the assembly to show how to fold the carton, I was really nervous and so was Harriet and Chloe but we managed to do it all.
