Welcome to to Term 2
How the first two years of school have flown by! Our Year 2 students are eager to learn more, more, more! The fantastic staff by their side are Mrs Pam Burcheri, Mr Peter Dalton, Mrs Caitlin Sullivan and Ms Vicki Evans.
Start of 2019
The Year 2’s have had a busy start to the year but now we are all very happy to be settled into our new classrooms! We have been establishing our class routines and have developed our Learning Agreements to ensure we are ready to create positive learning environments. We have also introduced our Big Idea for the term which is ‘We make decisions each day that affect ourselves and others.’ This leads us to defining what a decision is and the impact that it can have upon people and groups within our community. The students also took home notices for their first excursion which is at Casey Safety Village. This ties in nicely to our theme for our Learning Explorations. The children were all excited to visit each of the specialist classes this week and loved being back in the pool with the warmer weather.
The Year 2’s have been focusing on our school’s learner asset of ‘Collaborator’ working in collaborative learning groups on some fun and challenging tasks such as making Spaghetti and Marshmallow Towers. Our Big Idea for this term is ‘The tools in our everyday lives are evolving’ which provide lots of opportunities for exploration. We will travel to Coal Creek in Week 4 to investigate this further. The students have been concentrating on the procedural writing genre. We have been making various things such as lemonade, fairy bread & origami and following writing success criteria to make their own procedural texts. Finally, we have begun Mathematic groups that focus on our Learning Links for Operations.
