Grade 2

Not so 2-Dimensional after all!

Not so 2-Dimensional after all!

This week the Grade 2s have thought, hypothesised, experimented, and concluded that there is more to Maths and Science than sums and beakers. With giant bubbles and balloon shapes, the Bubbly Maths company came to shed new light on a few dull Mathematical concepts. Amazement and awe filled the hall as normal concepts like measuring, shapes and soap suds came[Read More…]

Thinking, Innovating, and Creating in Grade Two

Thinking, Innovating, and Creating in Grade Two

You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you will have. Creating is one of our themes for 2019, and this week the Grade two’s have done just that. Last year they discovered the joy of reading and story telling. This year they are combining those skills learnt with their new Grade Two knowledge. They were tasked[Read More…]

The Grade 2s have happy feet

What do Antarctica, South Africa, South America, Australia and New Zealand have in common? That’s right, Penguins. The Grade 2s have settled in and dived head first into the land of the penguins. It has been extraordinary to watch these little minds discover that there are many other different spices of penguin, besides our beloved African penguin. This weeks focus[Read More…]

Some highlights include: Splishing and splashing at Boulders Beach, collecting litter at Fish Hoek Beach and dodging sea urchins at Dalebrooke. Dancing many nights away during our school[Read More…]

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 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…]
