Year 2F News

Life in Year 2 has been busy as we begin Winter term with a flurry of activity. We are excited to welcome Alex and Flynn to our Year 2 family.

NAIDOC Week was great fun. We loved the opportunity to learn more about the culture of our indigenous friends. Playing the digeridoo was pretty tricky. Face painting was awesome and was a great talking point with our families that night. We also enjoyed responding to dreamtime stories through our art work and learning some new words, so don't forget to ask us.

A highlight of our Student Led Conferences in Week 2 was leading our Mum's and Dad's around to all our specialist lessons (now you know why we are so exhausted each day). They particularly enjoyed the fun hands-on French activity with Madame Vinton and the collaborative art work for Mrs Roche. You should see our Semester 1 Portfolios they are pretty amazing. They are coming home soon so we can show all our family and friends. Yippee!

In Math this term we have enjoyed playing some of Mr Stewart's favourite warm up card games with our new jumbo cards. Next time you are around, pop in and we'll teach you some.

We are looking forward to our next Assembly item with Mrs Vincent on Friday 25 August. Hot on the heels of our first one, but it will be well worth it.

It is with great sadness we say goodbye to our best mate Ben. He and his family are returning to London this term. We will miss your happy smile. Goodluck Ben, what an adventure.
