Some spooktacular fun in 2nd Class 2!
The boys and girls had ‘SUM’ fun as they enjoyed lots of activities for Maths Week 2023. We went on a Maths Trail around the school grounds and solved lots of Maths problems. Other activities included number of the day, sudoku and mangahigh. Well done to Bonnie and Diego who were nominated our ‘Mathematicians of the Week’.
Second Class 2 enjoyed celebrating Friendship Week from October 2nd-6th. We highlighted the importance of kindness and discussed the qualities of a good friend. The class really enjoyed participating in the ‘Secret Friend Activity’. In this activity they had the opportunity to compliment one of their classmates. We created a ‘Friendship Flower’ to illustrate the importance of teamwork and unity within our class group.
We really enjoyed a few moments of zen last week during a guided meditation session. We used butterfly breathing to help us relax and we really got in the zone!
We welcomed three little visitors Snowflake, Brownie and Diamond to our class this week!! Thank you to Ruby Mary from 2nd Class (1) for allowing her chicks to spend the week with us!🐤
We have had a busy month of September and Second Class 2 have settled back very well into school life. We enjoyed using Golden Time to relax, have some fun and get reacquainted with our classmates.
This month we focused on addition by combining and partitioning sets. The class also explored, developed and applied the zero properties of addition. For Mental Maths challenge the children enjoyed playing ‘Noggle’. Using our whiteboards, we had to find and record as many combinations as we could to make a target number.
This month as part of the Outdoor and Adventure Strand, we worked in pairs to understand the concept of a map or plan using symbols and a key. The aim of this activity was to develop spatial awareness of the relationship of shapes to each other by transferring information on a plan into reality. Here we are in action!
