Year 1 have been busy exploring numbers to 100. We had lots of fun this week in Math groups as we practised recognising, matching and building two-digit numbers, as we learned about place value. It was a tricky concept, but the kiddos challenged themselves to keep learning and it was great to see them cooperating together. We also enjoyed collecting data about our favourite ice cream flavours and displaying the information in fun picture graph.
We are continuing to explore all things living in our Science Unit this term. The children have so much knowledge about so many amazing living creatures. They are not only learning about this in Science, but are extending their reading and writing knowledge as they learn all about non-fiction books and information reports.
Year 2 has had a very busy month learning about Life cycles and our local indigenous people Yugumbeh.
We were visited by a Parklands parent, Mr Miller, of the Jirrbal, Baboram and Tableland Yidinji people. The students removed their socks and shoes and sat on the grass while they listened to Mr Miller talk about indigenous culture and their connection to the land. Some students were given the opportunity to play a didgeridoo and use the clap sticks while another attempted to throw a spear using a woomera. It was way harder than it looked! Also did you know the mob in the northern part of Queensland only has two seasons while the Yugambeh country has 6?
We have been studying life cycles of various living things including plants, frogs and bees. Please be sure to check out your child’s work hanging around the year 2 classrooms.
In math we have been focussing on number and algebra in particular place value, skip counting and addition and subtraction problems. 2M was able to use vege chips, lattice biscuits and mint lollies to practise place value and then eat afterwards.
