Week 19-20 Communication

Dear Families,

We hope you are well and that your children had a great week back at school.  Thanks as always for your support!

This Past Week it was amazing to have the majority of our Grade 2 students back in school together! Throughout the week the students got reacquainted and spent time carefully going over the different rules and protocols in place to help keep everyone safe. Our students also spent time reflecting on their learning from Term 1, sharing some of the fun they had while on holiday, and brushing up on their math and literacy skills.

We began the week by reviewing our essential agreements and school norms.

After reviewing norms and essential agreements, students applied their understanding by acting out different class scenarios. The students showed they knew how to act responsibly while being principled.

In mathematics, students reviewed important mindset messages and explored seeing numbers visually and creatively.

The Week Ahead should be another fun one!  We will begin introducing our new ‘Where We Are In Place and Time’ unit of inquiry.  In this unit we will focus on building the students’ social studies knowledge and skills.  During the unit students will inquire into world geography, and learn about the ways that climate and location can affect the way that people live.  Throughout the unit students will build their research skills, and practice writing informative text reports.  They will also be learning math skills related to reading maps and understanding position and scale.  It should be an interesting unit and a lot of fun for our students!

For Our Online Learners we will continue to do our best to provide quality online activities and as much teacher and classmate contact time as possible. We will be aided in this effort going forward by Ms. Rachel Drayton, who will be functioning as our Remote Learning Coordinator.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact your child’s homeroom teacher.  We realize that this is an anxious time for many families, but we will continue to do our very best to make sure that everyone at school stays safe, and keeps learning and having fun every day!
