Room 2 has had a successful start to the term. Thank you for supporting your child to read over the holidays. This has had a positive impact on all the students as they have hit the ground running with their reading. Keep up the fantastic work you are doing at home, it makes a huge difference in your child’s ability to read quickly and smoothly while building a greater understanding of what they are reading.
You may have noticed outside Room 2 there are a rotation of daily activities. There is a different activity for each day of the week. These are; Marvellous Maths Monday, Tricky Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday, Thoughtful Thursday and Fabulous Friday. These activities will be related to what we are learning about and are a great opportunity for you to discuss ideas with your child about their learning and help support them to complete the task. Check out the photo to see what sorts of tasks there may be.
Spelling this term is under way and your child will have new spelling words each week to be practicing. Our spelling testing day is on Tuesday and your child will have new spelling words to take home on Wednesday. This allows you to also have the weekend to help your child practice their spelling words. It is awesome to see everyone’s progress in their spelling so again, keep up the fantastic work at home.
Our focus for the first part of this term has been the season Autumn. We have had had lots of fun exploring leaves- making a pile of leaves to jump into, practicing our sketching and rubbing skills in art and writing poetry. All the art is on display in the class so make sure you check this out next time you are in Room 2! Enjoy these action shots from one of our afternoons having fun with making a leaf pile.
