We've had another busy week of learning this week. The children have been working hard with the new Unit of Inquiry and finding out the types of habitats that exist. They explored books in the library, identifying the ones that they thought would be useful.. Children applied their research skills of finding key words and using glossaries, contents and index pages to find a good fit for them to acquire information.
We also explored poetry more deeply this week. The children looked at the word choice, punctuation and organisation of poems and came up with their own guidelines for writing their own poems. We read the poem 'Has Anyone Seen My Dragon' by Roger Stevens and then wrote our own versions, thinking about using adjectives and rhyming words. The children then wrote another poem, thinking about different organisation of the rhyming words. Take a look at the children investigating the word choice of the poets and listen to some of the poems below.
Grade 2.1 are a class of 7 and 8 year old students who attend ISS International School in Singapore. We learn together and play together and enjoy sharing our discoveries with you.
