Weekly Update – T2W4

Hello and happy Friday to you all!

We have had a great week and the time has flown by! I can’t believe it is Friday already.

Student Reports

Student report cards have been sent home with your child today. They are in the big brown envelopes. I tried my best not to squash them.

Parent Teacher Conferences 

Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on February 9th and 10th. If you haven’t done so already please use this form to choose a time. It will be great to meet you all! If these times do not work for you please email me directly to arrange a suitable time for you.

Field Trip

This term we will be going to Kidzania in Busan for our field trip. It is a fantastic learning experience and the children are going to have so much fun. The field trip will take place on Tuesday 28th February. The cost of the trip is 30,000 won. If you haven’t already, could you please bring the money in an envelope with your child’s name on it by Friday, February 10th. Thank you!

Let’s take a look at what we have been learning this week!

In Maths, the highlight of the week was making cereal necklaces to help us calculate and count up to 20. The year 2 students also got to taste some 🙂

Year 2 students continued with our unit on statistics and focused this week on Venn diagrams.

In English, we read a new story, “One day in the Eucalyptus Tree”  and learned about plural nouns and past tense verbs. We had great fun taking turns to act out the story. Year 2 has been predicting story endings and working on writing lists using commas and correct punctuation. They answered comprehension questions about their current story “Power Cut”. Everyone did so well on their spelling tests today! Great effort from all! Well done!!

In IPC, we continued with our current unit by becoming artists. The students practised drawing their own self portraits, the portraits of famous artists, and they even tried drawing each other. They learned that portraits aren’t always paintings and that we can find them in everyday objects, like on our money. 

Look at the fantastic work they have produced!

And last but not least some pictures from our PE lessons!

Have a lovely weekend and see you all on Monday!
