In Numeracy, we have been continuing to develop our skills in addition and were introduced to the ‘part, part, whole’ method. We really enjoyed using this as a different way to add numbers together. We also continued our work on data handling by carrying out another survey and then displaying this using a bar graph.
“We made a bar graph to show how people get to school.” – Phoebe
“I enjoyed doing the survey in Primary 2.” – Lily
“We were adding. You put a number in the two small boxes and the answer in the bottom box.” – Jessica
In Literacy, we learned three new sounds: l, f and b. We watched Geraldine the Giraffe and then created our own word wall for each sound. We also created a poster to encourage people to be safe around fireworks, making sure we used a full stop and finger spaces in our writing.
“Stay way back from fireworks.” – Lucas
“We made a poster about being safe around fireworks. I liked writing it.” – Abigail
“We were learning ‘b’. Swinging a bat. Ball starts with ‘b’.” – Finlay
In IDL, we read a fairytale called The Enormous Turnip. We stopped at a particular point in the book and had to predict what might happen next, using the clues from the book so far. We also had great fun making and tasting our own turnip soup!
“We were predicting and had to draw the turnip and the people.” – Faith
“We made turnip soup because we read the book called The Enormous Turnip.” – Jorgi
