Warm Welcomes, Writing Goals and Wet Weather Paintings!

Last week in 2H we welcomed a new friend, Taya.  The whole class displayed our school value of Compassion to help Taya settle in and should feel proud of their kindess and care. Congratulations also goes to our award winners last week, Emily and Matilda.
In 2H the children have been working hard on building the skills to help the them achieve their writing goals.  Each child is encouraged to be proud of the goal they are working on and not compare themselves to other children, as throughout the year, some goals will be easier to master than others. 
When they can show in their writing three times that they can do their writing skill from their goal, they will receive a new goal.  We are all working on different goals as our writing development is progressing at different stages.    
Your child's current goal is on display in the classroom.
 
 In spelling we have been continuing to learn about compound words.  The children have completed many hands on activities to help them spell and read the bigger words made by joining two smaller words. Come and take a look at our new compound word display!

 In art we have been continuing to learn about how water can be represented in artworks.  We talked about the way we could use the art elements of line and colour to make a rainy background.  
We also designed an umbrella and took a photo of us to be in the foreground of our painting.  
We then practised our cutting skills by cutting out ourselves and the umbrella. 
 It was tricky cutting!  
Thanks this week to our parent helpers in Art, Shannon(Haylee's mum) and Sandy (Taya's mum) and to Anna (Jordy's mum) who assisted in our Thursday English rotations.  If any parents are available for our future Thursday Writing Rotations (9:30am - 11:00am) or Friday Art lessons (1:30pm - 2:30pm) then please let me know.
