Last week Second Class began to explore measuring length using formal units of measure, centimetres and metres. They began by comparing lengths then finding objects to measure.
This week they have been creating ‘arrays’ using counters to develop a deeper understanding of multiplication.
They then went on a ‘Gallery Walk’ to view and record each other’s arrays. Finally they related these arrays to their timetables facts.
In the classroom we have exlored the structure and language of writing a report, planning headings for a report; writing simple and complex sentences and incorporating formal units of measurement into reports.
Show and Tell continues to showcase the chidren’s holidays. They have been creating short presentations using props, posters, photos, holiday journals and PowerPoints.
