A little bit about us!

Weeks 3 and 4 – by Laurance and Naveen

We have been working really hard to do our best work for our Snapshot books.  In writing, we picked our own topic to write about.  We liked that.

 

Water topic  image

We had an exciting time learning about water.  We found out that all living things need water!  And how it is special to the world. Humans need water.  The plants we eat need water to grow and survive.  The animals we eat also need water.  So, water is very special!

Also, we are learning about the water cycle.  We acted out the water cycle as well in groups.

I thought bubbles were boring until I saw a video in 2TM’s class yesterday.  I never knew they were so cool.

With 2TM, we did a bubble experiment. We learnt so much about why bubbles pop, and how to stop them from popping. We used wet hands to catch bubbles, and they didn’t pop!  It was awesome.

Maths

In maths we learnt more about Multiplication.

I have been learning my times tables from the back of my toilet door at home, so I was  excited to learn more about it at school – Laurance

At school, we have been learning different words and symbols to say times.  Multiplied, times and groups of all mean the same thing – Naveen

2 groups of 6 =12   or   6 groups of 2 =12                                                                                                       You get the same answer if you change it around

                12 groups of 3 = 36                                                                                                                                                                I can count by 3’s so it didn’t take long to work out – Brodie

              7 multiplied by 6                                                                                               I worked it out by counting in fives, because I can skip count by 5’s.  So, I came up with 35, then I had to add the seven 1’s. It was 35 plus 7 which made 42. That was my answer    -Naveen

 

 

We started this experiment before level 2 assembly today.  We can’t wait to see what has happened when we get back next week.  We will let you know!

Also, People are celebrating lots of special events this week. Miss Loonstra is getting married, Diwali, Halloween, and Melbourne Cup Day holiday.

 

Signing off from Laurance and Naveen in 2NL.  Have a great 4 day holiday!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why are the holidays so quick? by Tiffany and Allie

Our tables were all mixed up when we got back to school. We were excited to see who we were sitting next to. We shared our holiday stories with the class, and Mrs Scotti said we could have a ‘Freddo Frog’ after assembly, because we were all listening really well and clapping when people got awards. Usually she just gives out one. The only problem was that we had to wait until Friday to get them!  

In Maths we learnt a lot about the months of the year, and a song which we really liked.  We talked about our favourite season as well. Most of us liked Summer!

In Integrated we are learning about water. Allie and I really want to know…

Why doesn’t the water go away when the sun comes out?

Here are our class questions about water…

This has been Tiffany and Allie reporting from 2NL in the first week of Term 4… and last term of Grade 2

 

 

 

Week 1, Term 3

Goodbye to Miss Lamb (for now) … we can’t wait to meet your baby!

Today the students said goodbye to Miss Lamb before she has her baby. The students can’t wait to meet the addition to her family, and have all suggested a name for the baby.  They have also tried to guess if it will be a BOY or a GIRL.

Who knows, maybe Miss Lamb will use one of the names.

Queen Vic Market

Just a quick reminder about the excursion tomorrow.

The children need to bring:

  • Themselves.
  • A warm jacket.
  • A disposable water bottle.
  • Their sense of adventure.

The children do not need to bring any food as they will be purchasing food with their parent leader. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call or come in to see me. We are super excited about exploring the market and finding new healthy foods we have not tried before.
