During the past two weeks year 2 have read ‘Dear Teacher’ by Amy Husband. We then wrote informal letters to Mr Paterson explaining why we would not be back at school this term! He wrote back to say we have to come to school and besides he would miss us very much. 🙂
After that, we wrote a formal letter, inviting a special visitor into our classroom to help with our project…….’Home Sweet Home’.
Place value has been our focus for the past two weeks. Counting and using the Dienes and Numicon has supported our understanding of the value of the digits, Look out for the homework this weekend to reinforce their learning.
