Week 4 Homework

I hope you have had a wonderful weekend. This week is a busy week with Grandparents Day Assembly of Tuesday and Band Camp on Thursday and Friday.

This week in Maths Year 2 will be focusing on Multiplication. In the past we have been looking more at groups of items, skip counting and multiplication as repeated addition, where now we will be identifying the repetitive pattern of 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. The following is a downloadable Multiplication Table 0 - 12.

During English this week we will continue with our Novel Study of Edward Tullane reading chapters 4 and 5. We will be identifying the wh questions (Who, What and When) of Pelligina's Story and Making connections between what we have read in the book and our own personal journey.

We will dig deeper (sorry for the pun) into our Transport unit this week. Last week Mr Morris presented a real world example and his demonstration of his use of technology including 3D modelling in architecture and engineering. Student building on this will visit The Land of a Thousand Rainbows using Minecraft. We have asked students to familiarise themselves with this program as part of their homework along with researching a form of Air Transport. This can be done by watching a few youtube videos, googling Air Transport and comparing the images or viewing a small range few websites. The task is designed to create a general body of knowledge about Air Transport.
