In Term 1, the 1/2 class studied a range of picture books by Peter Reynolds, our Author of the Term. Peter's books share themes of creativity, persistence and Growth Mindset. The students have responded to these texts through discussions, writing and art.
Below are some examples of our versions of "Sky Colour."
In Term 2, we have been learning about classic stories, fables, and Aboriginal Dreaming stories. In History, we have learned about ancient Mesopotamia. Below are some examples of what we have learned.
mathematics - place value
In mathematics, understanding place value to build number sense is a big focus in the 1/2 class. Here we are in Term 2, working in teams to match numbers represented in different ways: numerals, ten-frames, words and place value charts. Students then ordered the matched cards and used MAB blocks to represent them.
