This week in 2G we have been focusing on reading, comparing, ordering and renaming 4-digit numbers. We have enjoyed practising these skills while playing mathematical games like Mastermind, Race to the Moon and Rhino Race.
We have also been learning about community in class. We have learnt about different jobs within our community and the different types of communities including rural, suburban and urban communities. We have also been looking at our family communities and created our own family trees.
Thank you to all parents, guardians and students for such a wonderful transition into Year 2, 2018. We really appreciate all the support and interactions that we have already had in regards to learning experiences within the classrooms.
We highly encourage all family members to be involved in your child’s learning throughout the year. To do this we have a range of communication methods that you can access for each class. Our wonderful and enthusiastic students will contributing to these with their work, feedback and photos displaying the learning they have been involved in. We would love if you could access these and look through them as a family to discuss the learning experiences. Class teachers and specialist teachers update these regularly.

Year 2 Teachers
This morning in 2F and 2G, we have conducted a science experiment and made our own sherbet. We needed to follow a procedural text, making sure we measured each ingredient accurately in order for the experiment to work effectively.
During the experiment we noticed how each ingredient was mixing together and we saw how the colour changed only a little bit.
We were able to do a taste test after making our sherbet and made a connection between the citric acid and the sour after taste we got!
On Wednesday the 6th of December, we had the Year Two Sleepover at Aitken Creek Primary School. We changed into casual clothes. After that, we went to the learning neighbourhood and we played ‘The Invisible Ball’.
We played some outdoor games all together.
Then we came to free time on the playground.
Later, we had afternoon tea, which was fruit and biscuits.
After that, we had a scavenger hunt. In the scavenger hunt, we had to find the teachers and follow the instructions on the posters. Some were easy and some were hard. There were lots of people and activities.
We had delicious fish and chips for dinner.
After dinner we had free time and icy poles. Some people got their icy poles the next day. Then we went inside and and set up our sleeping bags, brushed our teeth, changed into pyjamas and watched a movie, which was Monsters University. Then we all went to bed.
In the morning we ate breakfast which included rice bubbles, cornflakes. toast and juice. After breakfast we brushed our teeth. We had to pack our sleeping bags, tidy up and change back into our uniform. Then we watched the Bee Movie and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in the morning.
We had a great time at the sleepover.
After going for a walk around the school and looking for different objects we saw in a video, we have created a survey about energy at home.
Please complete the survey, as we are going to look at the results at the end of the week. The more information we collect, the bigger the picture we can paint about energy at home.
