This Week in P2/3RS…

Well we have been very busy bees this week! From learning all about knights to building our junk model castles to creating a fantastic ‘Hodgeheg’ display, we have been working our socks off! We have also been learning lots in Literacy and Numeracy. Let us tell you all that we have been learning this week…

Literacy:

Olivia – In writing we wrote about knights – we wrote about being a page, squire and knight.

Dylan – Some people were learning to use Clicker6 to help with writing.

Sky – We were also learning our sounds – wa, ou and ea.

Channing – We were learning to visualise. Miss Smith read a book and we had to imagine what the pictures would be. It was a book about identity.

Erin – We have been reading ‘The Hodgeheg’ and we created a big display full of hedgehogs.

Numeracy:

Alex – We have been learning to tell the time. We can tell o’clock times and half past times.

Cody – We have been learning to weigh things to see if they are light or heavy.

Emile – We were learning to weigh using balancing scales to see if we could find things lighter, heavier or about 1/2kg.

IDL:

Lucie – We have been making model castles up in the art room. We have been using junk to make our castles.

Konard – We included a working drawbridge on our model and a portcullis.

Amber – We have been learning about knights.

Channing – We learned about pages – you had to be 7 to be a page. They had to use toy swords to learn how to use proper swords when they are older. They also played with hunting birds.

This week in Primary 2CF…

It has been another quick, and very busy, week in Primary 2CF.  Thank you to all of the parents and carers who have been able to make it along to Parents Night this week to share our learning.

Here are a few of the things we have been learning about this week.

Maths – fractions, and doubles and halves

“We had to share dots on the back of a ladybird to find out what half of the number was.” Isla

“We cut shapes into halves and quarters.” Angus

“We shared the toppings for a pizza and shared the toppings out equally.  We had to get it right or the customers would not eat their pizza!” Jacob

 Literacy – We wrote about the life of a knight, read more non-fiction books, created a story map for The Knight Who Wouldn’t Fight.

“I wrote about what a knight wears. Underneath their armour they were chainmail.  This is so they are protected when they go out to battle.” Andrew

“When a squire is 21 they can become a knight.” John

“We made a story map for the book.  The mouse is a knight and he reads stories to a griffin, a troll and a dragon to make them happy and so he doesn’t need to fight.” Noah

 IDL – We have been learning about knights, and continuing our work with Mrs Smith during YDance, creating moves linked to our castles topic.

“When a knight turns 7 they are a page.  They are a servant for the king and queen.” Erin

“The page turns into a squire.  A squire helps a knight to get ready before a battle.” Claire

“The knights can fight on horses.” Amber
