Year 2 / 3 News

Throughout the month of February, the Year 2, 3 children have been keen to participate in many topics of interest. 
Through reading, the children have been learning about words used to describe characters, settings and events. This has included discussion about the author’s choice of words and the impact of these words on the reader. Students have also practised using descriptive vocabulary in their own writing.
As part of comprehension, students have been answering different types of questions and justifying their responses. Spelling, along with decoding strategies, such as, chunking words and looking for little words in bigger words, continue to be a daily focus.
Some of the experiences planned for Mathematics over the past month have included:
-          Exploring the relationship between addition and subtraction
-          Solving addition and subtraction problems using a range of strategies
-          Calendar work
-          Collecting data, creating and interpreting tables, picture and column graphs
-          Identifying and adding coins to make up small amounts
-          Conducting chance experiments to  identify and describe possible outcomes
-          Telling time
-          Working on number lines
Students have a fortnightly school rule focus. During February, they practised active listening and moving safely on concrete. We are very happy to see that the children are becoming familiar with many procedures involved in our regular activities.
Below are descriptive sentences written by just some of our students.
