What a wonderfully busy week it’s been with SDG week, our ECERP teachers visiting, practises for UN Day and preparing for our assembly next week. As well as all of our amazing learning in between! Phew!
On Tuesday we raised our awareness of the SDGs by doing 5 different rotations.
We learnt about composting with Ms Emily
Gardening with Ms Nikki
Writing messages of peace with Ms Francesca
Doing mindful yoga with Ms Michelle
And learning about reusing items with me.
Ask your child what their favourite activity was. What did they learn? Can they remember any of the SDGs? What does SDG stand for?
On Thursday we had a special treat…our very first Mystery reader! We had to solve the clues to work out who was coming to read with us. Our clues were… I am a grown-up. After this clue, we thought it might be Mr C our technology coach. But then we got the next clue, I am a lady. So then we changed our minds. Hugh thought it might be his mum, Ms Kris. Clue #3 was, I have grandchildren. We knew that Ms Kris only has children, not grandchildren. So it couldn’t be her. Teddy thought it might be his grandma but when we heard the next clue, I speak English, he changed his mind. His grandma speaks Vietnamese. Finally our second to last clue was, I am from the United States of America. McKenna was thinking that it could be someone from her family and when she heard the last clue, My name starts with a B, she knew it was her grandma, Bebe! Thanks for sharing your time with us. We loved the story about the animal club.
If you have special visitors in town, they are always welcome to read to us. We love having special people in our classroom. Just email me and we can work out a time for them to visit.
Next week K2 A and K2B will be presenting at our ECC assembly. Please join us if you can to see your child on stage. We will be in the theatre from 9:25-10:15. We are excited to share our learning about ‘Identity’ with you.
In reading this week, we learnt how to ‘read to someone’. This is an activity that we will become independent in and have as a rotation in our literacy time.
In math, we have been looking at different materials and talking like mathematicians discussing what we notice, wonder and see. We’ve been using dot patterns, tens frames, Cuisenaire rods and teddy bears for counting. We also put the SDG symbols in order and thought about numbers before and numbers after.
Have a great weekend! We hope to see many of you at UN Day on Monday.
