A beautiful photo of Lance and Logan, proudly holding our class thank you booklet for Amy Harrison from the Narooma National Parks & Wildlife Office. Our class wanted to thank Amy for her generous time and inspiring information on shorebird protection during a presentation to year 2, earlier on in the term. We hope Amy will enjoy our class messages and carefully drawn shorebird pictures. Thanks to Naite for designing our wonderful front cover. If you would like to see the booklet, come in to our class and take a look at the copy we made for our class library.
Recently in maths, we looked at position and direction. We used words such as above, below, left, right, around, under, over, through, opposite, beside, behind, in front etc to describe objects in relation to one another. Here, students are following directions to arrive at a certain location on a given grid. After this, students had to come up with their own directions to arrive at a position on their own grid. They decorated their grid with pictures, including a special picture for the end destination. Students swapped their work with partners to see if their set of directions could be accurately followed.
Congratulations to this week's award winners... to Elliot for working hard at making good seating choices in class, to Maxine for working more and more independently during maths activities and to Edwina for showing impressive leadership qualities during sporting games. Also, to our two new Read With Me 50 members, Rafael and Rubi! Super work, 2M!
Congratulations to this week's award winners... we have Isla being commended for a terrific coloured peg graph she worked on with her family and sent in to me as a photo. Lance has been doing a great job at becoming a 2M UPstander and Tahlia is being acknowledged for her quick and quiet start to tasks, with no fuss. Also, we have Naite who has joined the '50' Read With Me club! Great work and great reading, 2M!
During the week we looked at place value, examining the thousands, hundreds, tens and ones value in numbers. After our learning, we celebrated with a fun game where a student had to sit on a chair facing the class. Another student wrote a mystery number up on the smartboard where the class could see. The student in the chair had to ask questions about the 4 digits written on the board (odd or even number, higher than, lower than etc). The student in the chair used the flip board to record their correct guesses and arrive at the mystery number. Look how much fun we had...
Students watching a BrainPop video about making observations and predictions during science experiments. Below, Demi makes some predictions on an experiment we will carry out later this week. She has read through the instructions of the experiment and thought carefully about what she thinks might happen, based on what she already knows about the substances we will be mixing. Stay tuned for more...
A note from Miss Taylor..
Our class blog will be added to at the end of every week. Take a few minutes to check out the entries with your child and discuss what they, along with their classmates, have been learning in class over the previous week. I hope you enjoy this special account of your child's time in 2M. Positive and encouraging comments are warmly welcome!
