WOW! It is Term 2 already! This year in 2G has gone super quick. We have been developing our school value of integrity. We have discussed the importance of being honest to ourselves and when communicating with our friends. In Maths, the children have been learning about multiplication especially their two times tables, by singing and dancing along to some fun songs. They have also been exploring different ways they can represent multiplication by using equal groups and groups of strategies. They have been using different materials like blocks, counters and Lego to show their understanding of multiplication. 2G have loved learning about multiplication and are looking forward to learning their other times tables songs.
The students were given a Technology problem solving challenge to make a tunnel using connector straws. They needed to work as a team, which meant listening to others, answering and asking questions and working together. This task made the children think about the concept of persistence, if something did not work they needed to keep trying and NOT GIVE UP! This project had its challenges, however, in the end the children worked together and created a great tunnel.
