Welcome to our blog!

Grade 2 Girls Rule – new blog link!

Dear students,

In the past few weeks a group of girls have been very busy in the Multi-Purpose room.  They have been studying recipes, making Powerpoints, planning a cookery demonstration, creating pizza, making videos and now starting a blog!

http://grade2girlsrule.global2.vic.edu.au/

This is now a place for all Grade 2 Girls to publish posts and pieces of writing they have worked hard on. Remember anyone can visit the blog and comment on a post (you don’t have to be a girl and you can be in any grade). Parents are also very much encouraged to comment as part of our authentic audience!

Congratulations and Best of Luck!

Creative Character Descriptions

Hi 1-2 E,

Some children at St. Luke’s Primary school in Blackburn have posted character descriptions on their blog. They were inspired by Roald Dahl. Please visit them by clicking on the link below. You may get some good ideas and I’m sure they’d love some positive feedback!

Maths Challenge – word problems

Hi 1-2 E,

It was great to observe that many of you recalled Division facts and strategies from last semester. For the next two weeks we will be working on Multiplication in Maths. Your skip counting practice will be very useful.

For those of you who are looking for some extra challenge in Maths (especially Grade 2), here is the link to worded problems at a Grade 3 level.  http://au.ixl.com/math/year-3/addition-subtraction-multiplication-and-division-word-problems

The problems require you to use addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. They are generated randomly so you will need to decide which operation to use…

This is an important part of developing your reasoning and logic skills. Good luck and let us know how you go! (Alternatively, this link will take you to some useful Multiplication practice http://au.ixl.com/math/year-2/multiplication-sentences)

Our Literacy time in the Multi-Purpose Room

We love Literacy time. It is so much fun. We like using the new bean bags and working independently. We can choose activities worth 1, 3 or 5 points each! We get to use the netbooks for blogging and spelling games. We learn lots in focus groups with our teachers. We are trying to challenge ourselves more and more each week.

What have you been working on or learning in Literacy recently?
