Jacinta Wild, Year 2 Homeroom Teacher
Year 2 are working hard during the Continuity of Learning Program. Have a look at some of their fantastic work!
Not sure what a word means? Ask Year 2! They have been learning all about context clues. They have used their detecting skills to find out the meaning of unknown words by looking at the words around them to see if they can find synonyms, antonyms, definitions or examples.
Recently our Year 2 students have been learning about explanation texts, which tell the audience how something works or why something happens. They used checklists to make sure they included a question title, sequence adverbs, paragraphs and diagrams. Check out their fabulous work!
Push! Pull! This term as part of our ‘Let There Be Light’ topic we have been learning about forces like pushes and pulls. Our whizzkid scientists created their own ‘domino rally’ tracks to demonstrate how forces act upon objects!
In number, we have been learning how to show repeated subtraction as division on a number line. We can also represent division as groups of or use our recall of multiplication facts. Can you answer this: A large pack of 132 marbles is shared equally into 12 bags. How many marbles will there be in each bag?
BOO! Look at our Halloween graphs to find out what Year 2 learners’ favourite Halloween treat and costume is. In math, we have been collecting data in which we then represent in graphs to interpret the data we found.
This term, students have been developing their understanding of art in digital form. Learners have been experimenting with various technologies in electronic applications. In Week 4, students engaged with weave silk as they drew artworks using their imagination and creativity.
In Term 4, we have been investigating how we grow and change over time. Within this topic, learners are learning how to describe physical and social changes that occur as children grow and explore how these are acknowledged by family and community. Learners have begun their discovery as they have created slides to describe their family and share the festivities and events they celebrate.
