This week we have been very busy in Year 2 Gold!
We have been spending time getting to know each other by talking about our holidays and completing an ‘all about me’ task.
We have enjoyed using oil pastels in Art to complete our self portraits. This was really fun and they look great!
Some other things we got up to this week was doing some spelling tests, we talked about ‘teen’ and ‘ty’ numbers in Maths, spoke about our classroom rules and discussed our classroom jobs.
Below you will find the Parent Information Booklet for Term One. This booklets outlines important information about your child’s learning journey in Year Two.
We hope to see you soon!

This term we have been exploring how to write procedures. For a procedure to be most effective we learnt we need to list the goal, materials, steps in order and complete a test. We wrote procedures on how to make a Vegemite sandwich. From this investigation we learnt that the steps need to be very specific otherwise your sandwich won’t look like a real sandwich (just like this picture). For this procedure the steps were simple like ‘put the butter on the bread’ and ‘put the Vegemite on the bread’.After some discussion ,we reevaluated the steps and made them more specific so we could make a proper Vegemite sandwich following precise steps.These steps were written like this ‘using your knife, place it in the butter and scrape some on the knife and spread it on the piece of bread.
This week in Maths we have been exploring 3D shapes. We talked about the properties (edges, corners and faces) and even made some of our own.
In rotations this week we focussed on drawing 3D shapes, making 3D shapes using plasticine and match sticks, using nets to make shapes and played shape bingo.
We learnt that pyramids must be made up of a shape at the bottom and then triangles for the sides to meet at an apex and a prism must have the same shape face on either end with rectangles to make up the other faces.
We hope you had a nice and relaxing holiday 🙂
Here you will find all the information about what your child will be learning about this term 🙂
