Last week we did our spelling test on the first 4 weeks worth of spelling words, I have written students out a personal list of the words students need to work on. I will send home a copy tomorrow, if your child doesn't bring one home then they have got all the words correct! The words Phoenix use are the Oxford Word list. They are high frequency words and progressively get harder. At this stage year 1's are doing 5 words a week and most year 2's are doing 10 words a week.
We did some History at the end of the day and were looking at life pre electricity! Somehow we ended up talking about the luxury of flushing toilets... but when we got back on track it was very interesting seeing their faces when considering life without electricity.
In literacy we worked on verbs and how swapping out our go to verbs to more interesting verbs can add meaning to stories and make our work more exciting. They did a good job of this.
Maths was a quick session where we went on a shape hunt looking for 3D shapes in regular items around the room.
