Here is some information and reminders for the following week:

What is happening in the Year 2/3 cluster!

 

Unit of Inquiry: Who we Are– Healthy lifestyles

In our Unit of Inquiry we have been focusing on the ‘healthy eating food plate’ which includes the 5 main food groups- vegetables, fruit, grain, protein and dairy. The students have been investigating one of these food groups through reading library resources to find out more. They have been creating a poster with a partner or in small group highlighting what they have discovered about the importance of this food group to their diet.

 

 EXCURSION

Important- Next week 2/3W and 2/3/Papini will be going on an excursion to the Golden Grove recreation park and the Village Woolworths to support our current unit of inquiry. At the park we will explore the need for physical exercise and the fact we need to be well hydrated, drinking water while exercising. At the village Woolworths we will have a healthy food tour of the 5 food groups locations as well as where the special foods are as well for allergies i.e. dairy and gluten free alternatives. After the tour, students will be in small parent groups and will purchase food from one of the 5 food groups. They will go through a register and pay for these and get a receipt, which we will use in our maths lesson back at school we urgently need 5 helping parents for these excursions. If you are able to help please inform your class teacher as soon as possible. Students can wear PE uniform for this excursion. Students must bring a school hat and labelled water bottle. The dates are as follows

Tuesday May 8- 2/3W excursion to Woolworths and Goldenfields Reserve/ playground near Skate Park next to Police Station. (11am to 12:45pm)

Thursday May 10- 2/3P excursion to Woolworths and Goldenfields Reserve/ playground near SkatePpark next to Police Station. (11am to 12:45pm)

Monday May 14 2/3SP excursion to Woolworths and Goldenfields Reserve/ playground near Skate Park Next To Police Station. (11am to 12:45pm)

An information note on green paper was forwarded home with your child on Tuesday and was sent to you via email. This note is also be attached to this cluster newsletter as well. It is a local excursion and the cost is covered by the excursion levy.

 

Mathematics: We have been exploring fact families, relating subtraction and addition number fact.  An example is 3+4=7, 4+3=7, 7-3=4 and 7-4=3. Knowing fact family relationships can help students recheck their fact accuracy. We have also continued place value activities, focusing on the operation of subtraction.

 

Literacy: Exposition and persuasive writing.

Year 2’s will be practicing the OREO format, which helps students write opinions, give reasons, give examples and restate their original argument in different way.

 

Opinion

Reasons

Example

Opinion restated

Year 3’s will continued to practice exposition planning and writing. They have practiced writing a strong introduction, which states their opinion clearly. They need to have 2 reasons for each of their 3 arguments. Their concluding paragraph needs to restate their opinion with a summary of their arguments.

What is happening in the Year 2/3 cluster!

 

Unit of Inquiry: Who we Are– Healthy lifestyles

We have been exploring healthy choices students can have in healthy school lunch boxes. Children planned a healthy lunchbox using suggested food guidelines for children.  We have been looking at the sugar and additive content of processed food, and focused on the need to have unprocessed fresh food to achieve a balanced diet. 2/3W and 2/3P enjoyed their excursions to Woolworths where staff showed practically where to locate the five main food groups. They had  n opportunity to buy some food from the 5 food groups and chose a selection of food to make a healthy snack. Their healthy plates looked amazing and delicious. 2/3SP are looking forward to their turn next Monday 14th May. Mrs. Prideaux would like their class to wear PE uniform for their excursion next Monday.

 

2/3 Incursion with Major Sumner, Tuesday 22nd May in Worship Centre.

The year 2/3 cluster will have an indigenous speaker, Major Sumner visit on 22nd May from 11:45am to 12:45pm. He will share his culture and traditions. This is an introductory activity to our next Inquiry Unit, where we are in place and time. Our central idea is ‘Places change due to a variety of influences.’

 

Next week is NAPLAN testing for Year 3 children. Please ensure children get adequate sleep and are on time for school. Most testing will be in the morning Tuesday to Thursday. The year 2’s will have a combined lesson (in literacy or numeracy} while the year 3 children are doing the NAPLAN tests. Tuesday (May 15th) is ‘Language Conventions’ and ‘Writing.’ Wednesday (May 16th) is ‘Reading’ and Thursday (May 17th) is Numeracy.

He highlighted to the children the physical changes he has seen at our school.  The children wrote a reflection about this. The children will be researching soon about a place they know about or they are interested in and investigating what has influenced any change to that place over time. Our lessons in inquiry next week will be preparing the children for this task. Our central idea for this inquiry unit is ‘Places change due to various influences.’

What is happening in the Year 2/3 cluster!

 

 

Unit of Inquiry: ‘Where we are in place and time’

Our central idea for this inquiry unit is ‘Places change due to various influences.’ We have been looking at changes at our school. We have focused on the current building project at the Worship centre. We viewed the church video showing the proposed new church reception area, café, toilet facilities, playground and outdoor decking. Mr Paterson shared to the 2/3 cluster about the new community development of building a Kaufland Supermarket on the Modbury Vista Soccer Club and Soccer Court area. We filled in a survey to the local council sharing the opinions of students.

 

Mathematics: We made array cities in Maths, which have been uploaded on Seesaw. The children are now more confident in relating repeated addition to multiplication. They are also improving in their counting in 3’s from 0 to 36.

 

Literacy:

Students will continue to focus on skills needed to write information reports. We will practice these skills in writing information reports on various topics. Miss Dametto has been helping the cluster learn how to write information reports. The children particularly enjoyed writing one on a free choice topic. We have been discussing the difference between facts and opinions, which has really helped them in including correct information report content.  We also used Venn Diagrams to explore the similarities and differences between narratives and information reports to help.

REMINDERS:

  • Survey – Every two years the school gathers data about different aspects of school life. All year 5 and 6 students, all families and staff are invited to participate in this survey titled ‘Quality Schools’. The survey, which is run in all Lutheran schools across Australia is facilitated by a third party. The data, gathered from the different stakeholders in the school, is analysed by the staff and School Council with strengths being celebrated and areas for growth becoming part of the school’s improvement plan. We also have the capacity to compare the 2018 data with that gathered in 2016; it is a rich way to gather data on the school. All families should have received an email from Dr Jean Thompson from RADII inviting you to anonymously participate in this year’s survey. If you have any problems with this (or did not receive it) please contact Tanya in the office. The students will complete their survey at school. The survey for parents closes on 24th June and there is only one survey per household.  You are thanked in anticipation for your involvement in this. An executive summary will be provided to the school community next term.

What is happening in the Year 2/3 cluster!

 

Unit of Inquiry: ‘Where we are in place and time’

We have started preparation for our summative assessment. Students are to investigate a place they know or have investigated about that has changed. They need to identify the change in that place.
