English:  In reading we are continuing to learn about the different reading strategies that we can use to become better readers.  These strategies are grouped under the CAFE concept - Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency and Expand Vocabulary.  One strategy that we have started to focus on is tuning in into interesting words.  We have learnt that good readers stop and notice unknown and interesting vocabulary to 'magpie' them (steal) from books and texts they have read to lock them away in their brains to use them later in their own writing.  We are working on sharing and using vibrant vocabulary in our writing and celebrate as a team those who do by adding these words to our new Magpie Word Wall.  This method is derived from the 'magpie' concept promoted by Pie Corbett and his Talk4Write program.  We love celebrating our WOW word additions and noticing magpie writers who are using their peers' awesome vocabulary in their own writing.  We integrated our latest visual art lesson on line and contrast to draw these amazing magpies for our Word Wall.




We also enjoyed finishing off another big week of learning by also inviting 2T to visit us on Friday afternoon for our well-earnt golden time.  We loved having them visit to share our favourite things to do in 2K!
