We are enjoying doing the Daily 15.
It is great to have a movement break. We feel more ready to learn after this.
Here we are dancing to Go Noodle’s Saved by the Bell.
Other Daily 15 activities we have taken part in so far:
Walk around the playground.
Jog around the playground – we are trying to better the number of laps we can do every time.
Before our Parent Open Afternoon on Friday our Daily 15 was freeplay on the playground equipment.
After we found out our topic was the Human Body and shared what we already know and would like to know, we created group names and posters related to our topic.
Names we came up with:
The Royal Skeletons
The Four Skeletons
Black Hearts of Evil
The Ninja Skeletons
We worked together as a group to make a template of a real life body and labelled all the different body parts we could remember.
We worked with our learning partner to create a skeleton using pasta and labelled as many body parts as we could.
We are looking forward to learning more about the Human Body.
We are learning all about Place Value, using Dienes materials, Numicon, and digicards.
We have used Dienes to make numbers for our learning partners. Our LP’s then had to guess our number. We love helping one another.
We have been learning to write our partner’s number into a place value grid. This helps us realise the value of tens and ones.
We transferred our knowledge to outdoors and used sticks, leaves and stones instead of Dienes materials.
Now we understand the value of a digit depends on its place, we can compare numbers.
We are beginning to use the greater than and less then symbols.
Welcome to the Primary 2/3 Blog!
We have been practising out routines and showing Miss McGurty our good sitting, good looking and good listening.
We can line up nicely in pairs. We have a line partner so we can get to know our new classmates.
We are practising using our amazing magnet eyes.
We have super listening ears.
Here are some excellent examples of good sitting 🙂
Thank you for visiting our class blog. Come back soon to share in our learning 🙂
