This week we learnt about writing instructions. One way of engaging the students to think about how to write instructions for playing a board game is to allow them to play the game. The students could quickly determine the steps and were able to write clear instructions for playing Snakes and Ladders. A fun activity to do.
In year 2 the students enjoy ending the week on a Friday with Golden Time. For those students who retain their Golden Time means that they can have 30-40 minutes participating in their choice of activities. These activities generally include creative play as with using playdough, being able to play with blocks, painting drawing or board games
