This Week in Form II

12th November 21

This week in English, Form II have been learning how to write instructions.  We have learnt about bossy verbs and the use of time connectives such as ‘firstly, next and finally’.  On Remembrance Day we followed instructions on how to make poppies.  We listened very carefully to detailed instructions and were very proud of our efforts!  We then wrote our own set of instructions so somebody else could make the poppy if they wanted to.
In Science, we have started a new topic on ‘Light’.  We have learnt some very grown up words, such as ‘opaque’, ‘translucent’ and ‘transparent’ and have learnt how shadows are formed.  We had fun outside in the sunshine making our own shadows and learning that our bodies are opaque so the sun can’t shine through us, and we therefore block the light. We also enjoyed following instructions to make shadow puppets in English.
We have had a wonderful week!
