TERM FOUR OVERVIEW

IN THE AREAS OF INQUIRY AND RELIGION IN GRADE TWO THIS TERM WE WILL BE COVERING…

Inquiry:

Students will explore how different environments have their own unique features. They will explore how people use different environments for different reasons and that people have a responsibility for the way they affect the environment.

 

Religion:

Creator God

In Creator God students focus on God as the creator who is present in all of creation. They learn about God as creator, the goodness of creation, and creation as a reflection of God’s love and goodness.

Called to Trust

Students will learn about the season of Advent and Christmas. Students explore two Advent stories- the Annunciation and the Visitation. The children will explore and ponder Matthew’s Infancy Narrative- the Wise Mend and the Holy Family’s flight into Egypt.

 

Healthy Cooking!

During the term we investigated healthy minds, bodies and spirits.  As part of our Inquiry Unit we decided to give the students the same amount of money as it would cost to buy a Happy Meal, and use it to plan and cook a healthy meal.  They had to include proteins, vegetables, grains, fruit and dairy, and they did a mighty job!

Book Week Performance!

We were very lucky today, we got to walk to the Flemington Library to see a performance about the shortlisted books for Book Week!  It was very funny and entertaining.  Some of the children were able to get up and participate in the performance, which was very amusing.  Here are some photos from the afternoon.
