Week 21-22 Communication

Dear Grade 2 Parents,

Thanks as always for your support!  It’s been a great week in Grade 2.  Whether in school, or at home online, our students showed commitment to their learning.  Well done Grade 2!

This Past Week our students spent time comparing human needs vs wants, as we get ready to inquire into the reason why people settle in specific areas of the world.  Our students also began finding out about geographic landforms, started to develop their research skills and inquired into the important aspects of map reading and coordinate planes.

Students worked on developing their mapping skills this week.

Children worked together to puzzle together the new central idea: The climate and geography of a location can affect how people live. 

For The Week Ahead our students will be inquiring into geographic landforms that affect how people live, and further developing their ability to read and find information and organize it effectively.  Towards the end of the week our students will be finding out about different biomes around the world, such as rainforests, deserts, plains, tundras, and more.  We hope to use VR technology to explore some of these different places around the world as well! It should be lots of fun!

Chinese New Year next week we will also be learning about Chinese New Year. KIS is organizing a charitable donation to the Christian Mission charity and each student is bringing home a red envelope.  If you would like to donate to this cause you can return the red envelope with a small charitable donation. On Tuesday students are also encouraged to wear red clothing or Chinese New Year outfits to celebrate.

Thanks again and have a great weekend!

Jordan, John, Jessica, Cash, Pik and Nook
