In maths this term, the children will continue to focus on number and the processes of multiplication and division. We will continue to work on place value and fractions.
Students will also focus on aspects of measurement, including time, location and transformation and 3D objects.
The writing genres we are focusing on for Term 3 will be narratives and poetry. Literacy centre groups and CAFE reading will continue this term. Our SMART Spelling Program words will be on the homework sheet each week and the children will have daily instruction regarding these words and spelling rules.
Each student will have individual time on one of our Year 2 laptops every week. This term we will focus on Powerpoint and assist the children in creating simple presentations.
Regular weekly homework will continue through Term 3.
We encourage parents to oversee the daily home reading program. Children should be reading for at least 15 minutes a day. Children will continue to be given their homework on Monday, which is to be completed and handed in on Friday. Weekly homework consists of the SMART Spelling words, one chosen Maths activity and one chosen Spelling activity.
Our expert in residence for 2019 is based on Coding. Each class will participate with an instructor for 4 sessions for an introduction to coding. The Year 2 children will continue to take care of our Vegetable & Herb Garden. They will be planting, growing, harvesting and using the ‘produce’ they have nurtured. We’ll be making yummy vegetable soup.
