MAD Grade 2 SCIENTISTS

MAD Grade 2 SCIENTISTS

Last week we did a few variations of The Elephant’s Toothpaste experiment. We had such a great time together on the field as a grade as we experimented for the first time. The kids were fascinated by the different colours of the “toothpaste”. We then invited the Grade 1s and 3s into our “labratories” to show off our experiments. The beauty of[Read More…]

Production FUN in Grade 2!

Production FUN in Grade 2!

What a joy it has been to see our budding stars perform on stage so confidently. Tales of Time has been a brilliant way to begin our end of term wind down. Each boy and girl has felt like a true celebrity. Make up, hair, amazing costumes and all the lights, cameras and action they can handle.  Backstage jitters have[Read More…]

Grateful Grade 2s

Grateful Grade 2s

We have explored the concept of  having an ‘attitude of gratitude’. We often get caught up on what’s going wrong, instead of focusing on what is going well. Remaining grateful and remembering the good when things feel tough, make life a little easier and definitely more fun. As teachers we try our best to display our gratitude towards our children[Read More…]

Water Wise Wizards in Grade 2!

Water Wise Wizards in Grade 2!

Water is still a hot topic in Cape Town as we live with the responsibility of using this precious resource wisely. Today we learnt about the Water Cycle, and that the water we have today, is the same water our great, great grandparents had. This was quite a shock to our boys and girls. Some interesting questions were raised as to[Read More…]

As a grade, we have had the privilege of collecting essential items for Sweetpeas Baby Care Packs. Sweetpeas is an amazing ministry that provides beautiful bags of everything you could possibly need when taking home a newborn.

Wonderful WRITERS in Grade 2

Wonderful WRITERS in Grade 2

This is such an exciting term as we dig straight into growing beans! The Grade 2s are keeping a “Bean Journal” to document each and every change their bean makes on its journey to becoming a green and healthy Bean Plant. It is so wonderful to see the children’s enthusiasm towards writing, and keeping an updated journal. This Writer’s Day we[Read More…]

Playing with PURPOSE in Grade 2!

Playing with PURPOSE in Grade 2!

In Grade 2 we take playing very seriously! In fact, we do it as often as possible. We play during Maths lessons, Afrikaans lessons, even THRASS lessons. We try to squeeze play into everything we do. Did you know that you can take something like learning about fractions or how to use conjunctions, and turn it into an epic game? The[Read More…]

This week the Grade 2 classes got the opportunity to visit one of the oldest universities in South Africa! We hopped on a luxury 60 seater bus and set off to the University of Cape Town. We visited UCT to expose our young children to a higher education institute in the hopes that it would ignite a passion for their futures. We were hosted by the Zoology Department[Read More…]

There’s No Dark Side in Grade 2

There’s No Dark Side in Grade 2

Last week Friday, on May 4th, the Grade 2 playground was swarming with Princess Leias, Darth Vaders, Jedis, and there was even a Wookie or two! Seeing as it was International Star Wars day, the Grade 2s decided it was as good an excuse as any to dig through the dress up closet and come to school as our favourite[Read More…]

E-Colour Excitement in Grade 2

E-Colour Excitement in Grade 2

In Grade 2 we have been learning about E-Colours and what each of the four colours represent. In a CARE Circle we discussed the personality traits of each colour. The children recognised some of their own traits and were able to determine what they thought their strongest colour was. They then worked as a group, using what they’d learned about how different[Read More…]
