Term 1 has almost come to an end! What a term it’s been.
We’ve been learning about contractions. We know that contractions are a shortened form of two words written as one word in which an apostrophe takes the place of the missing letter or letters. We practised turning two words into one and then made these gorgeous contraction caterpillars!
We also continued writing stories. This time we created our own storyline with a plan, drafted it, then turned them into books! We will be reading these books to other classes then taking them home at the end of this term.
In Term 2 we will no longer be focusing on narratives, our focus will be on persuasive writing!
We’ve been continuing on with our written and mental addition and subtraction strategies. We revised using a blank number line (see previous post) and also learnt how to chunk (split) two-digit numbers. We have been solving worded number problems and applying the strategies we now know.
We have also just begun learning how to solve multi step word problems (word problems that contain more than one step). We will continue doing these early in Term 2.
We have been learning how to stay sun safe! Check out some of our awesome sun safety information posters:
Have a happy Easter and I’ll see you all in Term 2!
