Today we continued learning about instructions. We talked about what we already knew about brushing teeth and why it is important to brush them well. We then practiced brushing paper teeth! We had to think carefully about being bossy so that our instructions were clear.
This week in our English lessons we have been learning about instructions. Today we followed a set of instructions for how to play the game ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf?’ We had great fun! We then compared instructions to a recount and learnt that they are always in present tense. We are hoping to write our own instructions soon so keep checking our blog!
This week in our English lessons we are reading poetry. Yesterday we enjoyed a poem by Jeff Mondak called Daddy’s Making Dinner which was really funny! Today we focused on how poets use vocabulary. We started learning about similes and then had a go at writing our own.
We have been learning about writing accurate sentences in our English lessons. We have made a set of success criteria that we should use every time we write. We have learnt the story of Oliver’s vegetables using talk for writing. This week we have changed a story map so we can write our own version of the story.
Today we filled in our last entry in our sunflower diaries as we are taking them home at the end of the day. It has been amazing to watch them grow and they are doing extremely well as you can see from our photos.
Today in English, Year 2 Toucans had a go at role playing some characters from the ‘Scaredy Squirrel’ books we have been reading. We then used this to make our own storyboard of a conversation using speech bubbles.
We had a very exciting letter from Mrs Butterworth when we returned to school on Monday. She asked for our help to understand what it means to have a growth mindset as she has been impressed with how clever we have become!
