Week 29-30 Communication

Dear Grade 2 Parents,

Thank you as always for your support. Despite the ongoing challenges we are proud to say that our Grade 2 students continue to demonstrate their learning and enthusiasm every day, whether they are in school or learning remotely.

This past week has been full of interesting learning experiences. Our students have been inquiring into some of the environmental problems that have been created due to human choices around the world.  Specifically the problem of deforestation and desertification.  Our students learned about the cause and effect of these problems and connected them to their learning from the previous unit about world geography and some great stories we’ve read in class, ‘The Lorax’ and ‘The Great Kapok Tree’.

Here you can see students using their thinking and self-management skills to accurately measure length using both non-standard and standard tools.

We visited the grade 5 exhibition this week and saw all the wonderful work and individual inquiries going on. Great job grade 5! 👏

For the week ahead the grade 2 students will be observing the seeds that they planted, while learning first hand about the measurement of capacity or volume.  Our students will also continue to inquiry into some of the negative consequences that human actions have had on our natural environment, and begin looking at the United Nations ‘Good Life Goals’ for the Earth’s future.

Thanks again to all of our Grade 2 community.  Please have a safe and pleasant weekend!

Best regards,

Jordan, Jessica, John, Pik, Cash and Nook
