After Mrs. Giannakakis introduced Area, students traced 2D shapes into their numeracy books and measured the shapes area. Students were encouraged to also label the shapes they measured.
After recess, 2JH made their way to Spanish whilst 2RG had P.E with Mr. Pearce. 2RG had their T-Ball Clinic.
Whilst 2JH were at T-Ball, 2RG did some Assembly practise. We are hosting this Friday’s Moon Lantern Assembly. Please note that children have been asked to wear red clothes or cultural clothing.
Ms Handforth read the next chapter from our shared novel, The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark. In today’s chapter, Plop meets a man with a telescope who is looking at the stars in the night sky. He tells Plop that Dark is Wonderful. Plop learns about the names of stars and discovers that some stars that are closer together make constellations. Using black cardboard and stick on jewels, students made a constellation Artwork.
