Year 2 is an extremely exciting year with the students being given the opportunity to develop their dramatic skills, by performing in the Year 2 Production. The students' participation in the production supports our school values. They are to develop respect for others through responsibilty, resilience, commumity, creativity and team work through drama, singing and dance.
Our school student well being program is based on the 'Resilience, Rights & Respectful Relationships' program. We teach mindfulness activities.
We offer many interesting incursions and excursions that link to our main area of investigation for the term. Science learning covers Changes (Chemical) and Push and Pull ( Physical). Technology learning investigates Engineering ( using materials to create a moving product). Health learning covers Exploring health messages and health promotion. Geography learning covers Australia in the world and Special places. History learning covers Changing technology and Why remains of the past are important to our community.
The Year 2 coding program teaches OSMO, Spheros and We-do . These skills are used in literacy and numeracy programs.
Our 'Swim and Survive' program at the Monash Aquatic centre is well attended, as learning to swim well is an essential survival skill.
Other activities will be placed on the Year 2 blog, as they occur.
Parents are most welcome to help in our classrooms, in the library, on excursions and camps and on our parent group committee and School Council committees.
All parents who assist in any way must have a Working With Children Check. This card must be presented at the office when parents sign in
