Year Two Update

Year Two students have commenced Spring Term with enthusiasm and excitement.

In Mathematics, students have enjoyed exploring how to divide collections and shapes into halves, quarters and eighths. They enjoyed embarking on classroom scavenger hunts, directing the Beebots to locate various fractions and identifying examples of fractions in their daily lives. Year Two students are now learning to tell time to the quarter-hour, using lots of hands-on resources.

Our Year Two and Three students have joined forces for our Big Ideas unit this term. Students will be exploring and answering the question, “What do we C in each other?” The letter C refers to Michael Fullan’s six skills for 21st-century learning: collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, citizenship, character and communication. The students have participated in six short activities so far, each focusing on a different skill.

Our Year Two students also enjoyed sharing their learning at our Junior School Assembly in Week Two. The students created their own version of ‘The Doorbell Rang’ by Pat Hutchins, a picture book that explores the concept of division. Students dressed up as teachers from our College community and put a spin on the original story.

We look forward to sharing more of our learning with you as the term progresses.
