Over the last three weeks the Foundation, Grade One and Grade Two students have been busily working away on lots of different skills.
In Foundation students have been practising their reading skills by identifying the initial sounds in words or pictures. They have also learnt lots about the letters i, b, n, d, l & h. In writing students have been practising writing sentences independently using a picture prompt and forming their letters of the week on the solid line. In maths, Foundation students have been learning one new game each week to practise at the start of each lesson. They have practised counting forwards and backwards to and from 50, matching numbers to words, their friends of 10 and subtraction from 10.
In Grades One and Two students have been practising their reading skills by identifying new vocabulary in texts and improving their understanding of what they read by looking back through the text to help answer questions. In writing, students have been exploring persuasive texts. They have investigated what it means to be ‘persuasive’ or to ‘persuade’ and understanding different points of view. In maths, students in Grades one and two have been learning to divide/share a quantity equally. The strategies they have used have been to use equal groups, drawings, and objects to solve division problems.
