Group 4 (Grade 2-3 S)

Wow! Term 2 is here!

In Literacy this term, we have been reading and writing narratives and persuasive texts.

In our Reading workshops, we have been using our reading journals to record interesting words and facts, write questions that we think of while reading, write down our favourite parts of stories we have read and record any other thoughts we have while reading. An important skill we have been learning is to use dictionaries and thesauruses to help us understand unfamiliar words and find synonyms.

In Grade 2/3 we are really enjoying using our new school laptops. We have been using them in spelling to segment our spelling words into sounds and play games to practise our weekly spelling words.


In Maths, we have been focusing on addition and subtraction. We learnt a new game last week to practise adding and subtracting. It is a card game called ‘Salute’. We have learnt lots of different strategies to help with addition and subtraction, including using backtracking. Sam and Layla are using backtracking to solve mystery number facts that they have created for each other.
