Day 4 - Literacy

Year 2 have had an amazing start to 2015. Today we have been doing many literacy activities -  defining the details, writing with adjectives and reading. We spoke about ways we will reflect on our learning and how positive feedback is given.

Today was also our first assembly for infants. Year 2 were so excited to meet the new Kindergartens.

The following are some of our writing from today based on a short movie "Once upon a Lifetime" from the Literacy Shed.

"There was a man on a boat. A turtle flew past him. He ran to the front of the boat and tied it to one of the turtles. His ship was broken so he thought that it was the best idea to jump on the baby turtle." - Jasmine

"Once upon a time there was a man in a boat. His telescope fell off and his ship was not working. He saw flying turtles so he tied his boat to the neck of a turtle. The rope broke so he jumped on the back of a flying turtle." - James

"Once upon a time there was a man in a boat. There were flying turtles around him. Then he jumped on one of the flying turtles. He was happy to be going home." - Abbie

"The man was pulling on his ship and then the engine fell off. Flying turtles came by. He ran to the front of the boat and he lassoed the turtle. The turtule made the boat move. Then the rope snapped. He then heard a sound. It was the sound of a small turtle. He jumped on the turtle and got home." - Oskar
