From Miss Candice Agustsson and Mrs Lauren White
In mathematics, Year 2 we have been exploring 2D and 3D shapes.
We have had a lot of fun naming, describing, drawing, building and manipulating a variety of shapes and objects!
We love a challenge, and some of these tangram cards certainly tested our problem solving skills!
Creating with pattern blocks is a great way to explore tessellating shapes.
We have learnt more about the features of three dimensional objects through a variety of building and drawing challenges!
Next term, we look forward to further investigating flips, turns and slides, as well as putting our mapping skills to the test!
In week five, Mr Davis organised for the Life Education van to visit us at St Emilie’s.
Each class got the opportunity to meet Healthy Harold, the very friendly giraffe. In our incursion, we learnt about healthy eating and what we should look for in a balanced diet. In groups, we created our own healthy lunch boxes to see if we were able to include all of the food groups.
Week Four was filled with lots of big moments in Year Two!
Throughout the week, each student had the opportunity to present to the class about a culture important to them. It was so wonderful to learn more about each other and where our families have come from!
We have learnt so many new and interesting things about lots of different cultures, and we all did an amazing job speaking in front of the class (which we all know isn’t always an easy thing to do!)
On Thursday 10th August, the Year One and Two classes also participated in a ‘Cultural Fair’ and Mums and dads shared their knowledge with us!
We hope you enjoy this ‘sneak peek’ into our Cultural Fair!
Another huge thank you to the parents who helped to make this event possible. You all did a fabulous job and we are very appreciative!
