Catholic Identity Day

### Aside

In Numeracy we have begun exploring adding two 2-digit numbers with exchanging.

We’ve had lots of fun getting to learn about exchanging while using place value charts and pop-sticks.

In this task, students worked in pairs to solve a set of sums. Students had to represent each number in the ones column, using their pop-sticks; then create bundles of 10 to exchange into the tens column.

# Mindfulness

Students in 2AH and 2MA have been enjoying puzzles this week in Mindfulness. Here are some photos of students working with their peers to complete their chosen puzzle!

# Numeracy

This term we have begun exploring addition and subtraction. Yesterday, we learnt how to find 10 more and 10 less by playing the game “Race to the End” with a partner!

# End of Term 1

WOW!

What an amazing term we have had in 2AH and 2MA.

Miss Hockenhull and Ms Angilletta are extremely proud of all the Year 2’s and the effort they have put into their learning in Term 1. To end our term, we completed some Easter craft activities.

Here’s a look at our “Funky Bunny’s” that we created using different line and symbol patterns.

We wish all our families a safe and restful break, and we look forward to seeing everyone back at school for Term 2 on Tuesday 3rd May.
