Term 2 Week 5

On Tuesday, we had some very unusual guests visit our classroom. Can you guess who they are?

Nemo and Bruce

Our practise for our assembly item continued all week. However, on Ms H let us take a break one afternoon to kick the football on the oval.  Some of us chose to play in the sand instead. It was great fun.

Finally Friday came and we were presenting our assembly item Waltzing Matilda. Everyone was watching, and we were dressed up in our Australian clothes. We sang really well and had lots of fun too.

I apologise as we are unable to upload the video at this time.

Please enjoy watching our assembly item.

Term 2 Week 4

Learning Waltzing Matilda

Our class was very busy learning 'Waltzing Matilda' for our assembly item.

We even sang it outside in groups, and we sang it on the basketball courts. We sang it everywhere, until we knew the song without looking at the words.

Term 2 Week 3

The highlight of week three was of course our excursion to Waterfall Gully Farm. The Year 2 class would like to thank Mr S and Ms G for allowing us to visit their farm and for making it an awesome day.

We are on our way.

These are some of B's cows.

We found a skull with horns.

Riding the pony.

Hay bale fun. We played on the hay bales.

Our school bus.

Our new student 'Smiggles'.

Fun in the cart. Smiggles loved it.

Smiggles forgot that he had four paws of his own.

The picnic area.

Here comes an awesome throw. We got to throw balls at water bottles that were perched on the tree branch.

Look at those horns.

Cows and their calves.

Enjoyed the view from the rocky hill.

We made it to the top.

Lunch overlooking the farm.

Ms H's Terrific Two's.

We had a great day at the farm. We climbed hay bales, rocky hills, fed animals and collected chicken eggs, just to name a few things. Everyone had so much fun and we also learnt a little about life on a farm. We were all very tired by the end of the day. Thank goodness for the weekend.

Term 2 Week 2

 Wow what a busy week we have had. In Maths we have been continuing to learn about Place Value. We use MAB blocks to help us.

In Literacy we have continued to build our minuetes in our Work on Writing, or WOW as we call it in class. We enjoy being able to choose what we write.

We have also been learning about Recounts. We have learnt how to use a 'planning sheet' to help us when writing our Recounts.

We are looking forward to finishing our Recounts next week.
