In literacy we have been learning about the parts of an explanation text, including glossary and flow chart, and we broke down what types of words are needed to write the text such as casual connectives, time connectives and words in the present tense. Next week we will get to chose an animal and write an explanation text about the life cycle of that animal.
In Topic we have been continuing our conversations about Remembrance Day and different types of conflict and resolution. We agreed that as children we have different responsibilities to that of adults. We discussed the importance of working together as a team as we are together all year and need to work well with each other. To help consolidate our ideas we made a mission statement "2P Mission Statement. We promise to be good friends to everybody because we care and respect others. We learn to we can help each other". Today for fun we did some team work where we made different things using our bodies, such as standing in a circle with our elbows touching and our backs facing each other. The class had to work together to get the desired outcome. The students then made my name using their bodies. We recorded it for you to see. Kayla took the initiative to lead the group as we discovered if there are too many people yelling at each other nothing gets done.
