Dear Parents and Children,

What an exciting week it has been in the Year 2/3 class. They conducted their assembly excellently and looked great in their costumes. The school was impressed as they showed off their dictionary and alphabetical order skills and we all learned valuable lessons about tolerance, equality and telling the truth.

On Tuesday we were fortunate to have had Mrs. Lickert demonstrate an actual science experiment that a laboratory technician would perform. It was a superb way to end off our IPC unit on “A day in the life”. The students learned about different liquids being acids or bases. Thank you again Mrs. Lickert for your patient and informative instruction.

We started our new IPC unit, “Turn it up” by listening to sounds around us and understanding that sounds make waves and different sounds make different waves. The students had fun using a virtual oscillator to see what the sound of their voice looks like. You can try see what sounds look like by clicking here.

In English we consolidated our learning about instructions by creating sets of instructions for spaces around the school. Look out for their posters about how to use the microwave, library and elevator. In math we learned about direction and movement and the students enjoyed playing a treasure hunt game, navigating a boat around a map to seek for different trinkets as well as following directions accurately to create patterns. In P.E the students demonstrated that they are learning striking and fielding games well by playing cricket and baseball.

We ended off the week by starting to learn and practice our songs for the upcoming Winter show. Click here for the lyrics for the students to practice at home. I have Updated the web page to now allow access to the lyrics.

That is all for this week, stay warm and healthy and have a great weekend.

Mr. Kearney
