Week 5 - A Very Busy Week

This week though it is wet is still going to be a busy week. Unfortunately due to the significant precipitation falling from the skies our transport excursion to the City this Thursday has been postponed until the 4th of September. Thankfully the rain has not damped Year 2 enthusiasm for designing the transport system for the Land of a Thousand Rainbows. We will be starting to create this in mine-craft later this week. The students of Year 2 have completed their training exercises and are ready for job! They have written their applications to the Lord Mayor of the Island and he has agreed to employ the students' services. 

We shall continue our Novel study of Edward Tullane, we will be identifying the cause and effects of Edwards dilemmas, looking at the sequence of event thus far and the elements of a story specifically focusing on the plot. During Maths we are concentrating on 2D shapes and angles. 

This Friday as part of book week, we get to dress up as our favourite book characters and to bring the cakes for cake day. 

Could I also make the request that student bring with them either head phones or ear buds to attach to the computers. This is to avoid students sharing. Finally, as I am sure you are now aware, we don't have spelling homework this week due to the book week celebrations. I am looking forward to an exciting week of learning.
