It’s been another full on week for Room 31 and we have been very excited about our new desk arrangements! Thank you again to everyone who sent in a mixture for our Science Investigations, especially the yummy ones!
Special congratulations go to Molly and Paige who won the ‘Creativity’ award in the whole school, Year 2 category, Science competition. They girls jointly designed a device that would detect when recyclable material was put in the incorrect bin and send a message to an app on your phone, thus saving our environment! Well done girls!
Congratulations also, to Jordan and Thomas who were this week’s Merit award winners!
This week we are well into our research of Samson House in Fremantle and the Samson Family. Keep your eye out for some interesting work around this on Open Night. We have also started our assessments for the Progress Folders, Reading, Writing, Science and coming soon Mathematics. This week in Literacy we looked at the 3 sounds of ‘ed’. We needed to listen for the last sound the word made and select which sound it came under. This proved very tricky for some of us!
Next week we are looking at ‘contractions’, Y-ies spelling rule and ‘onomatopoeia’. We have started work with money in maths and Mrs Lucas as moved onto ‘time’.
Don’t forget Next week is the last week to get your forms and money in for the excursion!
