Literacy Focus

_______________________

Monday 12th June 2017

This week primary 2/3 are focusing on adjectives.  We are using this skill to enhance our writing by adding interesting vocabulary.  We have used substitution to up level these sentences in groups.  Some of the metaphors used and vocabulary is fantastic! Well done P2/3.

Literacy Activities

Thursday 11th May 2017

The children have been enjoying some of our new literacy activities and were keen to share them on our blog.  We have been using the listening post as a new literacy activity, silly sentences to practise punctuation as well as highlighting to identify spelling word in sentences.

Jelly Tasting


Primary 2/3 enjoyed tasting the jelly they made for our book focus.  We had raspberry, strawberry and orange flavour.  The children voted and none of them tasted of pea (like the one in the story) but they definitely like the orange flavour the best although all the plates were clear in less than 5 mins.

Primary 2/3 had a fun afternoon creating the characters from Supertato.  We have Carrot covered in plasters, Cucumber wrapped in toilet roll, Broccoli drawn all over, The Evil Pea and our star Supertato in his lovely red cape.  The children enjoyed creating our characters and will be using them to create a short film in their groups to recreate the story.  Well done P2/3 your characters have some great details!

Upcycle

From This …………………………………………………….. To This

After a large clear out one of our pupils decided: “Don’t throw this out, I have a good idea!” and so we introduce: The Declan Wheel (named after the P2/3 designer.)  Instead of boring unused spinners, Declan has created sounds spinners and we have invented a new literacy game for the children to play.  What a wonderful idea, well done!

Active Literacy

Primary 2/3 would like to share our learning. We have been engaging with active literacy to learn our spelling words and to practice our sounds. We use play-do and lego to build our words and help us with letter formation, we also like to play SPLAT! I hope you like our pictures, we will update you with more recent literacy pictures soon.
