Grade 2 - October 20 / 2017

WEEKLY HIGHLIGHTS:

Thank you again to parents who have volunteered to assist in our Scientist in the School events on Monday.  It was a great event. Thanks for your support.

We have launched our new unit of inquiry on simple machines. We are exploring how simple machines make our life easier and more enjoyable. We are asking parents to donate any old materials for our simple machines unit. For example: springs, rope, wheels of broken toys, marbles, old train track pieces, paper towel rolls, book rings, etc.

If there are any parents who would like to come in and speak to the Grade 2 students about design or building, we would love to have you. Please contact your child’s homeroom teacher.

In our number relations unit, students are looking at how to write addition and subtraction sentences and how to solve simple word problems.

In French, we started our first set of centres in class. The students were involved in four different activities including gesturing and saying all of the words of the play with the teacher.

LOOKING AHEAD:

The Winter Athletic season is almost upon us!  Please click here to sign up for Winter teams and GADPs.
