This week we have been busy finishing our exploration and composition of poetry. We wrote haikus about living things, which helped us to formulate a question connected to our Unit of Inquiry - Are all things that move living? We have been looking into this and everyone agreed that it needs to be able to move by itself in order to be a living thing.
In Math we have been finishing our work on fractions. In fact, the children took part in some challenging Math investigations where they needed to find the fraction of a number when the numerator was more than one. See the photos below for how we did it!
The work on fractions led very nicely into multiplication and division. Many of the children have good number fact knowledge and can recite their times tables confidently. However, when we talked about what 5x6 means, the children found it difficult to explain. Today we investigated multiplication a little further to gain a greater understanding. Students were given a number, and using cubes, had to create arrays of different ways to make that number. This also led to an interesting discussion and investigation of what a prime number is. Have a look at the great thinking that went on!
Ending each day on a positive note is a great way to encourage children (and adults) to reflect upon and feel proud of their successes that day. Here you can see the children sharing What Went Well for them on Wednesday. It was also great to see the children encouraging each other and demonstrating how caring they are.
A Message From Ms Kate
The Book Swap is coming!
Over the next couple of weeks, please help your child to check your bookshelves for gently used books that they do not want to read anymore, and be ready to bring them to school between Monday 23rd and Friday 27th May.
Students will receive tickets for 3 different types of books; chapter books, picture books (including non-fiction) and books in languages other than English.
On Tuesday 31st May, if students have a ticket for a chapter book, they can go to the MPR to swap it for a chapter book, if they have a picture book ticket, they can swap it for a picture book, and so on.
Grade 2.2 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.
