This week in Year 2 we have been learning about measurement!
We have been measuring objects inside and outside the classroom using rulers, dinosaur foot prints, centi-cubes and pop sticks.
In writing we finished off our holiday recounts and continued learning about describing poems.
In Art we started sketching portraits, we can’t wait to share these with you all.
We have also been practicing for our assembly. We are very excited to be performing it next Friday to the junior school.
Welcome back to Term 2!
We have had a busy first week back at school and have really enjoyed hearing about everyones wonderful holidays.
This week we have started to learn about some of our new topics, these are:
Mathematics: Measurement and Weight
English: Recount writing and Poetry
Religion: Penance and Prayer
HASS: The continents and oceans of the world
We have also opened up our new play areas. These areas have been created for the students to independently practice their knowledge of the new concepts during our literacy and mathematic rotations.
*** Just a reminder to send in a photo of yourself with your mum for our Mother’s Day Assembly.
Have a lovely long weekend,
Nicole & Tiana
We hope you had a wonderful holiday 🙂

This week in Year 2 we have been finishing up many of our topics and showing how much we know by completing some assessments.
On Monday we had a recount writing assessment. We split up into different classrooms and wrote all about our weekends.
On Tuesday we had a persuasive writing assessment. We really enjoyed this one as we had to convince the Easter Bunny to deliver chocolate to children instead of carrots. Some of us… Miss Massimi would prefer carrots over chocolate, so we had a fun time trying to convince her why chocolate is better. For some reason, she is still not convinced!
In maths this week we have been learning about odd and even numbers. We mixed classes to play Place Value and 10 more, 10 less games. We hope your children will be able to teach you some of these games over the holidays.
In Religion we have been learning about the Easter Story and reflecting on our Lenten Promises.
On our last day of Term 1, we went out for morning fitness, watched the Year 5 assembly, had a colouring in competition and watched the movie ‘Hop’.
We hope you have a wonderful, safe and restful Easter!
