 Here is some information and reminders for the second week of school:

What is happening in Year 2B and 2P in Week 2!

Sharing the Planet

  • Our central idea is ‘Human activity influences living things’
  • Students will be inquiring into the endangered and extinct animals (and living things) and various forms of human activity and its impact.
  • It has been great to see some students taking action at home and doing further research about their learning.

 

Mathematics:

  • Students will continue investigating data. The 2B class will be using their data they collected from the zoo. Students will be learning about tallies, graphing and making predictions.

 

Literacy:

  • Students will continue learning about the features of Information Reports.

 

 Health:

  • Throughout Term 3 students will be split into two groups. Group 1 will be working with Katie Kenny and will be looking at safety of ourselves and of others. The second group will be looking at the importance of cyber safety as well as basic computer skills.

 

Zoo Snooze– On Friday 28th of July the Year 2B class will be the first class to head to the Zoo for their sleepover. The 2P class will have their Zoo Snooze the following Friday (4th of August). This final reminder for 2B students has been sent home today:

 

Just a few final reminders about the Year 2 Zoo Snooze:

  • Please ensure all items that your child brings are clearly labelled. Students can leave their bags next to the front office in the morning.
  • Students can wear warm casual clothes to school on Friday. They may like to bring a small backpack to put their drink bottle, rain jacket and snack for the zoo. (There will be afternoon tea of fruit provided at the zoo)
  • We will have lunch before getting on the bus. Your child can bring along their lunch in disposable wrapping so there is no need to carry around lunchboxes at the zoo.
  • If your child requires medication (at night, asthma etc) please bring in a named, ziplock bag with clear instructions and give to Carly in the morning.
  • In case of emergency, the GGOSH phone can be contacted during the Zoo Snooze on 0403522467

 

Thanks, Carly
