Welcome to TREMENDOUS Thursday!
BUDDY READING WITH 2RG & 2FA
This morning our blue reading group headed down to support and listen to the incredible year 2 readers. It was a pleasure to witness the relationships that are developing with each other and how this is showing wonders in the development of reading.

Children looked to explore their 8x tables through what is known as a multiplication flower! Children used their creativity and knowledge with their 8x tables to navigate and engage with creating their own 8x table flower!
Example 3x flower:

We made the most of the calm weather this morning and headed out for a class fitness game!
Prayer was led by Aryton and Stefan on Kindness.
Through readers notebook today, children continued to explore Determining Importance through Fiction texts, but this time using our storytelling mountain, we explored how to decipher the importance of images in stories without using the text. Children discussed ideas as they investigated this through our class library of picture books.
Continuing on with our Homophones focus this week, children teamed up to create an 8 page picture book that incoperates at least 10 homophones from their lists created earlier in the week. The children used an abundance of creativity and collaboration as they worked to create authentic, engaging and humorous stories.
ILT/SHARK TANK INQUIRY
This afternoon children had the opportunity to continue developing their Shark Tank Inquiry’s or have independent learning time, engaging in a range of learning from the week.
