We have had a busy first few weeks in Primary 2. Today, we read ‘Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs’ and estimated how many cups of water it would take to fill Harry’s bucket. We then measured to check if our estimates were close – one of us estimated the exact amount correctly!
We have been going outside often for our Numeracy and Mathematics. Last week, we chalked our partners outline in the playground and then measured the length using sticks. On Friday, we chalked a hundred square in the playground to use for snakes and ladders and other number games but by the time I went to take a photo, it was barely visible – a sign that it was well-used!
In Literacy the last two weeks, we have been focusing on our comprehension skills and have been exploring settings through our class novel ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’ by Enid Blyton. We made some very detailed story maps to explain the ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘where’ and ‘what doing’ of our stories and have been building and describing settings in a range of ways. Below you will see that a group of children decided to create a setting with loose parts for our ‘Woodies’.
