What’s on in Term 2 in Year 2- 2018
Welcome back to Term 2!
Our Inquiry Unit this term is ‘From Paddock to Plate’.
Students will learn about the origins of food and the different types of food we produce for human consumption. We will be studying where and how food is grown and gathered and a variety of ways in which we can manage our resources and waste.
Our two excursions this term are to the Queen Victoria Market and C.E.R.E.S. a community environmental park where the children will participate in educational activities. Our Year 2 garden will continue to be an ongoing resource for us as we grow, harvest and prepare food to eat at school. At the end of the term we will celebrate our learning with a special recycling dress up day and parade.
In our Maths program we will continue with work on counting, number patterns, place value, addition and subtraction. Students will also learn numerous problem solving strategies and experiment with the measurement of mass using formal and informal units.
In Literacy we will focus on using different writing genres, SMART spelling and grammar. Through small group, ability based literacy centres the students will continue to enhance their comprehension and text-analysis skills.
The students will participate in a weekly Year 2 sport rotation program covering various gross motor skills and games to further develop their sportsmanship.
We shall continue to develop our students’ understanding of our Whole School Values Program through various activities in the classroom.
Children will complete weekly homework by undertaking a chosen spelling and maths activity. They are also required to write their spelling words out and keep up their daily reading.
