Place Value game

This week everyone in grade 2 made our own place value board game.

It helps us think about tens and ones, and where they belong in relation to zero and one hundred. It also involves some strategy.

In 2P some of our families were lucky enough to see Zac defeat Fabienne in a match this morning, then got to play the game with some of us.

“In the game we had to try to put the closest numbers together on a number line” – Indi

“I had an amazing time” – Ella

“I like playing the game” – Delilah

‘It makes maths really fun” – Harriet

“It helps me with my maths” – Rory

Staying cool in the art room!

Let us never feel like this guy in the art room again!
Chelsea and the students have been very busy in art drawing sketches of what they would like to be when they grow up!! Bell Fundraising have turned these sketches into artwork which will be printed onto Tea Towels. Each class has their own unique artwork. 
Funds raised from this fundraiser will go towards the new air conditioner in the art room. So please, if there’s ever a time to buy up big, it’s this year! 
Tea Towels will be on sale on QKR! for $12 each and, as you know, make a wonderful Christmas present!!  Orders will be open until the end of the school holidays.

Fine motor

Today we have spent the afternoon completing some fine motor activities. There were 4 rotations; play dough, threading with beads, puzzles and picking up cotton balls with tongs. Regular practice of fine motor skills helps to build muscle strength in their hands and is important for writing, cutting, zipping, buttoning etc.
