Sweetpeas is an amazing ministry that provides beautiful bags of everything you could possibly need when taking home a newborn. They visit the new moms at False Bay Hospital, who often have nothing but a blanket and a nappy to take their baby[Read More…]

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…]

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…]

Grade 2s Diving into CREATIVITY

Grade 2s Diving into CREATIVITY

This term the Grade 2s have been putting together their penguin projects. They have learnt all about penguins and were itching to write down all the knowledge gained. They had to write about each stage of the penguin life cycle. They then compared it to, and wrote about,  their own life cycle. It has been such a joy to see them create[Read More…]

The Grade 2s are feeling so fortunate to have had two lovely days for our field trips this term. The sun was shining and there was hardly a cloud in the sky.

We have had such fun with all things “colour” this week. We had the best time playing a “Kies die Kleure” game and a “Kleur by Nommer” activity in Afrikaans. We started our Penguin investigation and learnt where different penguins live in the world. It was so interesting to do one of our first cooperative group activities as we coloured in[Read More…]
