Week 4 Reflection – Mary MacKillop Feast Day

Celebrating our Patron, Saint Mary MacKillop, was a great way to end yet another week of great learning in Year Two.

Although this year our celebrations looked a bit different, we still managed to join together as a community for this special day.

It was a pleasure to see you all engaging in the liturgy with family, cooking Mary inspired treats and completing fun activities about Mary.

How will you try to be more like Mary MacKillop in your actions?

 

Happy Mary Mac Feast Day Everyone! 

Today you will need the Mary Mac Learning Packs you received in the mail.

WEEK 3 REFLECTION

As we come to the end of another great week of learning, let’s think about the new skills we have developed.

Throughout the week we continued to look at different ways of measuring length, such as indirect comparison, meaning to use a third object to help measure and compare the length of straight and curved lines. We measured and some of us even double checked with another item to ensure we were measuring the length accurately.

In visualisation, we moved from single sentences to short passages. The development of our ability to visualise in order to remember and understand texts over the past week has grown so much!

Investigating our animal was another highlight of the week. Yes, we know lots about our chosen animal, but we discovered that we can continue to learn more and more by using educational websites for research.

It has been a great week of extending and challenging ourselves!

 

I wonder which task has been your favourite this week?

I wonder if you can find other objects you could use to measure length?

I wonder what was the most interesting fact you found out about your animal?

Have a great weekend!

From Sarah, Clare, Vivian and Steph
