What good learners do


                                                                       
During writing time it can be difficult recording the sounds we want to use.
We use this chart to help us think about what sounds we can hear at the beginning, middle and end of a word. Once we have written our story, we check we have tried our best by reading our work back with the teacher or a partner.  Then we tick off the steps we used.

Here we are giving it a go!


   




















We also use this process to help us write some more interesting vocabulary in our stories. We call these words
WOW words.
Blake is showing us a poem he wrote using some WOW words. He used his check list to ensure he chose appropriate WOW words to describe his nouns.

Super work K2P!

The King's Cake



'The King's Cake' was our shared story this week in K2B and K2M so we decided to have a cake party! We made 2 delicious chocolate cakes and made and decorated crowns to wear. We pretended we were at the Kings birthday party and sang happy birthday and gave him 46 claps!
Ask your child to retell the story for you. Ask them what happened to the King's cake in the story... luckily ours had a happier ending!

Problem Solving

We love Mathematics here in K2P.
Although we are quick at adding number problems to 10/20, subtracting takes us a little longer.
We identified that this was our next learning step.
Here we are trying different ways to solve some subtraction problems.
Some of us use number lines or our fingers to keep track, while others count on from the bigger number.
Together we decided that there can be several ways to solve a problem, but some methods can be more efficient, depending on the type of problem we need to solve.





Cicada Skins

Blake found some really cool cicada skins on his fence at home. He shared his bounty with the class this morning. He also showed us how they can cling to anything!




We were surprised to find that these things were not dead cicadas but actually the skins they leave behind once their bodies have grown too big for them.








We compared this to our own skins, where we came to realise that our skin stretches to fit our size as we grow, unlike the cicada skins!

Ooey Gooey Oreo Bars

On Friday K2P had a lot of fun making something very tasty!

With only three ingredients, (butter, marshmallows, Oreo cookies) we made an ooey, gooey, sticky mess!
It all began with a press of the button on the blender (very exciting!) to crush the biscuits and then heating some butter and marshmallows in the microwave until they were all puffed up.

Then we all had to use our muscles to mix everything together.
This proved to be quite challenging as the butter and marshmallows cooled!

Some of us thought the mixture looked like lava and scoria from a volcano, but we all agreed it tasted a lot better!
Well done K2P for using your listening ears to help you follow instructions.

Eat your heart out Masterchef!


 Keep your fingers safe!


 "It looks like dirt!"


 "Wow!"


Go Krishant, go!


 We had a marshmallow to help us finish stirring...



Very sticky and tricky to stir!


 Taking turns



 Taking turns to press the 'pulse' button on the blender

Here Comes The Mail!


In K2M we started writing letters to friends as an authentic learning task. 
We even have our own K2 letter boxes! 
The children loved writing letters and loved getting one back even more!
