It’s time to celebrate Indigenous Literacy Day!

For the first time ever, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation invites primary and early learners, 3-11 years of age, across Australia to a very special Indigenous Literacy Day celebration presented in collaboration with the Sydney Opera House.

It’s time to move, shake and sing with a catchy melody sung by Australia’s favourite pop star, Jessica Mauboy – in two Indigenous languages, Tiwi, Mangarrayi, and English plus share a book reading of Yu Sabi Densdensbad? (Can you Dance?) in Kriol, by Cheryl Lardy and in English by Justine Clarke. Hosted by Indigenous author and performer Gregg Dreise and TV presenter Natalie Ahmat, this event gives our younger audiences a celebratory experience of Indigenous language and literacy. There is even a sneaky, cheeky visit by children’s author Andy Griffiths!

Specialist Day Week 6

Hello Year 2! Can you believe it is Week 6 already! All of us specialist teachers can’t believe what an amazing job you are doing at your Remote Learning each week. We hope you are enjoying your specialist classes.

Today you have a Google Meet at 9am with Kristie. Last week it was fantastic how everyone stayed on mute until asked to speak. Just like in our learning spaces! Have a think about 1 thing you would like to share with everyone tomorrow in our Google Meet. Maybe you lost a tooth, had a birthday, got a new cat! Who knows?! We would love to hear it! Remember too that the chat is there to say hello, but there is no need to write ‘hi’ 100 times each!

Here are the instructions to join your Google Meet again.

Here are your lessons for today. Keep up the great work everyone! We can’t wait to see your work on Seesaw!

Week Five Reflection

We are at the end of another week. What did you enjoyed the most?

This week we continued to build on our multiplication skills. We worked on identifying how many groups there were and how many were in each group. We discussed that when it comes to writing an equation or writing it in words the amount of groups always goes first.

In Reading we explored the text ‘Pobblebonk‘. We used our visualisation skills to help us picture what animal could have been making that sound! In Writing we identified what an adverb is – a word that describes how the verb is being done.

How about those Mary MacKillop slides? It has been great to see you all fill in those slides section at a time. It shows how much we have learnt about our patron saint. Remember those slides are something you can work on throughout the week.

Who could forget the interviews about technology! It was so interesting to read the responses you gathered from your parents. We noticed there were lots of mentions about Nokia phones and their favourite game being ‘Snake’! Did anyone watch Geraldine’s video? It was also interesting to hear about black and white TV’s and having to hire a coloured one for special events!

What was one of the most interesting things you learnt about technology?

What is something new you learnt this week?

What is something that was a challenge but you were persistent and overcame it?

It has been a fun filled week of learning in Year Two!

We can’t wait to see what next week will bring!

We hope you all have a lovely weekend!
