This week in Primary 2CF
We hope that you all enjoyed our assembly about the alphabet last Friday! Thank you to everyone who was able to come along and see our magnificent assembly and hard work, and thank you again for helping everyone learn their words at home.
Here are a few of the things we have been learning about this week.
Maths – we have been learning about sharing things equally.
“ We have been using cubes to help us share things into groups” Zac
“I am finding dividing work very easy” Amelia
“We had to share the lollies out between 2 people” Zyna
“ I found dividing a little tricky” Kyle
Literacy – We read a story called There is No Dragon In This Book.
After reading the story we had to identify different punctuation marks. We found question marks, full stops and we identified an elipsis … in the text.
“I liked the story as it had Jack and the Beanstalk in it.” Megan
“I liked the part where th Giant sneezed the sun out because all the animals were freaked out! Noah
“When the dragon tried to save the day by breathing fire and relighting the sun.” Wallace
IDL – We have been learning about different parts of a castle, and designing castles that we will make out of recycled junk after the February holiday.
“Some castles have cannons.” Braxton
“ Castles have a portcullis. This is a big giant door that has spikes on it!’” John
“A castle has arrow slits to fire the arrows at enemies” Jacob
“Castles have drawbridges. Drawbridges help people cross the water. The water is called a moat.” Isla
We have started to design our Castles for junk modelling:
Assembly – We all enjoyed sharing our learning about the alphabet during our assembly.
“ I liked when I made the letter K in class” John
“ I liked when we were doing the Quick Quack Quentin story because we were acting out the story.” Amber
“We made the letters with Mrs Cuthbert in class. We used cotton buds to make the dots.” Kian
“We learnt all the words in the alphabet song!” Alesha
“I felt I did not have enough time to practice my words, but I did well on the day” Andrew
