What a lot of rain we've had this week! But this didn't stop us from having fun with our learning! We spent time exploring the difference between a fact and an opinion and worked as a team to sort statements into the right group. The children then used their knowledge of what makes a fact and what makes an opinion to write their own about their habitat. Exploring examples of different persuasive texts also helped the children to identify the form of opinion writing by looking for special words, phrases and their organisation.
The children also spent time this week organising the information that they had collected about their habitat and deciding on how to present it. Children have chosen to present their knowledge about their selected habitat on a poster, picture or slide show. Come to our class assembly next week to see some examples of their work.
In addition, the children have been extending their knowledge of fractions to include finding fractions of quantities. I was very impressed with how they applied their knowledge of multiplication and division to help them solve the problems.
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.
