Super Shapes!

This week the children have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. They have also written their own shape poems about train journeys. All of the children have extra reading books for the 1/2 term holiday, a French task and a book review to complete.

Enjoy the 1/2 term holiday

Wham! Bam! Splat! Year 2 are Onomatopoeia crazy!

This week we have  been learning about Onomatopoeia. We are using this to create poems. In maths we have continued to use the 100 square to subtract tens and units. At the end of the week the children will be testing their vessels to see if they float.


Amazing Adding!

This week the children have been adding units and tens using their 100 squares. They have been writing explanations about how sharks find their food and have enjoyed learning the different fruit names in French.

Wonderful Weighing!

This week the children have continued to learn about weighing. They have practised weighing items from class and ingredients using grams and kilograms. They were all very excited about making pizzas today. In literacy they have been focusing on non-fiction texts. Both Miss Hind and Miss Burke have enjoyed hearing about and tasting the baked goods from home, well done!


Awesome Authors!

This week the children have been creating their own pirate adventure stories in literacy. We have been amazed by the children’s creativity. They have all used some super words to build excitement. In maths we have been using balance scales to measure the weight of classroom items.
