During Anti Bullying Fortnight in November we did lots of great activites. We learned poems and songs about bullying, we learned how to deal with bullying when we see it happening, we made posters for bullying awareness and we practised meditation and yoga so we can calm ourselves down and manage our emotions. We also finished off the fortnight with a Crazy Hair Day.
We covered lots of different strands so far this term including clay, paint and construction. We have lots of fantastic artists in our class.
In History this term we worked on lots of strands like stories and games in the past. We looked at differences and similarities between games we play now and games our parents or grandparents might have played. We learned to play different card games. We completed a project in Geography. We researched and presented what life is like for children in other places. We saw some fantastic projects about Poland, Pakistan, Japan and many more!
One of the science experiments we completed in Term 1 was to investigate if plants need light to grow.
In Term 1 we explored lots of different genres in English. In September we focused on recount writing. We created stories as a group and then wrote stories in pairs based on the circus. In October we learned how to follow and write procedures. We got to make cookies too! In November and December we have been working on narrative writing. We have been practising our storytelling and sequencing skills. We created our own Superhero stories using pictures and then began to write them.
In Term 1 we have had two competition winners in the school writing competition!! Zoe won a prize for her excellent recount and Peter won a prize for his super procedural writing. I have no doubt we will have many more winners this year!!
In term 1 our Genius Gems, Masterminds, Superstars and Clever Cookies settled in well to life in 2nd class. They have been working super hard and I am so proud of their efforts so far this year!
Stay tuned for lots of detail about what we have been learning about in 2nd class. We can't wait to show you all our work!
We are looking forward to a new year of learning and fun. We hope you all enjoy the new school year and we will do our best to support and help you.
