The past few weeks have been very busy in Room 2. Thank you for your patience while I have been trying to get my education email and other aspects sorted.
My new email address is firstname.lastname@example.org Please do no hesitate to contact me regrading anything.
We have been very busy in the class
Recently in Maths we have been completing number addition stories and concentrating on counting backwards from 20. We also began looking at chance a data, using language such as likely or unlikely and possible or impossible.
In Literacy we have read Diary of a Wombat and How the Birds got their colours. We have enjoyed writing some of our own stories about different ways we believe birds may have got their colours. We are continuing to work on sounding out our words, our sight words, writing simple sentences, sequencing events and comprehension.
We also have had the opportunity to use a light box over the last few weeks which we have incorporated into literacy and maths. This has been great for the students as it has really engaged them.
In Science we have been learning about the weather, this has included using our cloud finder to go outside and using our cloud finders find the different types of clouds that we could see in the sky. Everyone had a good go at trying to pronounce all the names of the different clouds, even Cumulonimbus!
In week 7 we also had our Fathers Day morning, thank you to all family that came to celebrate the morning with the children, it looked as though everyone had a really great morning!
In week 8 we got to see the Japanese incursion and watched the performers play very loud drums. We also were lucky enough to spend some time in our outdoor classroom (nature playground), each child was given a nature passport with five different missions in it, these included painting rocks, making cubby houses, creating mud pies, painting a nature collage and completing a nature scavenger hunt. If your child would like to continuing using the Nature Passport there is a website in the font of the book, www.natureplay.org.au/passport where you can log on and will be given new mission to complete.
Thank you for all of your ongoing support, the transition for Mrs Tomich to myself has been so smooth and the students have adopted really well.
The next few weeks are going to be very busy getting ready for Open Night, Book Week and End of Term.
Thank you again.
