In Year Two we are learning about wheat and the conditions it needs to grown in.
We watched this clip all about wheat – you might like to look at it too!

This week with the help of our fabulous parent helpers, we made wheat filled grassy heads!
To the parents who helped out during 2B Science THANK YOU very much, it was great fun for all creating our grassy head characters.
Our wheat filled grassy heads will be on display at the Science Expo. They are ‘bald’ at present, but wait until we observe the effect of introducing a little water and a little light to our wheat.

READING TO YOUR CHILD
The Year Two Gold class has been busy working in teams to bring our stories of ‘Mr Owl the Hero!’ to life!
With the use of the PuppetPals app on the iPads, we have been able to create our own characters and backdrops, as well as take turns practising our storytelling skills.
We can’t wait to share our narratives with our families at the 3 Way Interviews in Week 6!
Look forward to seeing you then!
One of the Australian Curriculum Numeracy standards in Year 2 is to be able to identify everyday events that involve chance. To this end, the students have been using language such as ‘likely’ or ‘unlikely’ and ‘possible’ or ‘impossible’ to describe possible outcomes during a range of experiments.
This week we have been exploring the concept of chance by using everyday items such as coins and dice to help us see what the chances were of flipping ‘tails’ ten times in a minute or rolling a ‘6’ five times in a minute.
We are still very curious to find out how chance works. We wonder if we’ll ever know? 🙂
We have begun learning about the structure and features of narratives. We are currently working together to create our own story about the adventures of ‘Theodore the Thinking Dragon’ and ‘Mr Owl’! It has been so much fun planning and sharing ideas and we can’t wait to bring our story to life! Stay tuned!
In the next few weeks staff will be inserviced regarding placing posts on the school website.
We will let you know when these are up and running so stay tuned!
