Week 24-25 Communication

Dear Grade 2 Parents,

It’s been a great week back in school after the holiday. Thank you to all parents for your support and for helping keep our Grade 2 community safe and in school!

This Past Week has been fun and very busy! Our Grade 2 students worked hard to further develop their research skills. Each student spent time reading and collecting information on a biome of their choice. The students focused on finding and organizing the information they found into a graphic organizer.  During Math lessons, our students inquired into the different ways that we can measure time, and worked to make connections between reading time, and understanding fractions.

Friday was an extra fun day with Wacky Hair Day and house shirt day. Check out some of these creative hairstyles in Grade 2.

In maths, students review and practiced using the language of time and reading clocks to the nearest hour, half hour, and quarter hour.

Here you can see students using their research skills to find out about a chosen biome.

The Week Ahead should be our final week of this ‘Where We Are In Place and Time’ unit of inquiry. The students will be applying the knowledge they have gained about world geography, climates, maps and human survival needs while engaging in a role play activity.  In this activity students will imagine what life might be like in a certain spot in the world, and how the climate and geography of the location might affect how they live there.  It should be lots of fun!  Next week our students will also begin taking the information they’ve gathered about a specific biome and begin creating an informative report. We look forward to seeing our students transfer their geography knowledge into their own written piece.

Parent-Teacher Meetings are planned for the week of March 21st to 25th. A sign up sheet for meeting times will be sent to you via email next Monday. We look forward to meeting with you all soon!

Wacky Hair Day was a big success!  Thank you to all the parents who helped their child get ready.  It was great to see all the spirit around campus on Friday!

Thanks again for your continued support!

Best regards,

Jordan, Jessica, John, Cash, Pik and Nook
