Wow! What a wonderful term and start to 2020 in Year 2, Room 5.
We have enjoyed a number of whole school events - Clean Up Day, Book Fair, Woody's Got Talent, Harmony Day and set up some great projects within our classroom.
Once again our class sunflower garden is up and running thanks to the help from Bella's Pop. The seedlings were grown from our last year’s crop and are thriving in the garden outside our room. We water them each day, measure the height of three plants twice a week and record their progress. We have recycled milk bottles to use as watering containers and have made a sunflower border to keep busy feet out! We are proud of our garden and look forward to seeing the bright yellow sunflowers bloom!
Inside the class there is always something happening...differentiated lessons in Maths and English, inquiry and research in HASS, Health and Well-being sessions including our daily Crunch n' Sip and our favourite day of all.... FANTASTIC FRIDAY!
On Fridays we work on tasks that reinforce what we have learnt in English and Maths as well as additional activities requiring the use of computers, the sandpit, construction materials, paint and of course cooking! We are able to select any activity in any order as long as there are no more than 4 people in a group at a time. Fantastic Friday enables us to interact, help and co-operate with our classmates, make sensible choices and decisions and discipline to manage our time. It's so much fun we forget about the amazing amount of learning we are doing!
We look forward to all being together again as a class soon.
