The term began with a celebration of the wonderful women in our lives who love and care for us. We enjoyed welcoming our mums, nannas and grandmas into the classroom for a pampering session in honour of Mother’s Day.
Our new Religion topic this term has been looking at the wonderful things God created for us. We have discussed places where we see beauty in God’s creation and examined ways we could all help to protect what God gave us.
In Maths we have been learning about subtraction. We have practised our counting back strategy using number lines and used MAB to show how to solve a subtraction sum with borrowing and regrouping.
As part of STEM, our inquiry topic in class this term has been frogs. We have learnt about the life cycle of a frog and have been busy writing our first information report about the interesting amphibians.
In Art, Mrs Raj has introduced us to the artwork of Vincent Van Gogh. We looked at his famous sunflowers painting and recreated our own version using natural materials.
Previously in Year 2:
Wow! We are only four weeks into term and we have been busy learning so much already. We have settled into the new year and have been trying hard to learn our class routines.
In English we have been learning how to write a super, detailed sentence with interesting verbs and have enjoyed reading along to some of our Jill Eggleton big books.
Our maths focus has been all about reading, writing and making numbers as we learn about place value. We are also learning our friends of 10 and doubles facts.
For our brain and fitness breaks we have been grooving along to Just Dance.
In Religion, we have been discussing ‘Making Jesus Real’ and have been taking on a personal ‘Gospel Challenge’ each time we read a bible story.
