The Grade 2’s had a wonderful time performing in their Music Concert this morning. Lots of singing, dancing and instrument playing. Thank you to all the parents who were able to attend.
We have started our new unit of inquiry, ‘Where We Are in Place and Time’ which is stimulating much curiosity and inquiring. Our central idea is, ‘Over time people’s curiosity has led them to think beyond our planet’. The children are reading non-fiction books about the Earth, the Moon and the Sun and learning many new facts and making connections to their own knowledge.
In Math, we have been exploring fractions and making equivalent fractions. The children enjoyed playing a fraction game to help develop their understanding. We continue to work on the concept of multiplication through math arrays, repeated addition and skip counting.
….and finally some ‘Rocket Launching’ fun with our Grade 5 Book Buddies!
