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.

A visit to the Save Our Seas Shark Centre has been a much anticipated Grade Two field trip. It was been an amazing experience to say the least. The children listened to a short talk about the tides and were told what creatures to expect to see at low tide. A short walk over the road took them to the Dalebrook rocky seashore to[Read More…]
