Latest from Year 2
Our current unit of inquiry, Where we are in place and time, has been greatly enjoyed by our Year 2s. Our unit began with a step back in time and the students came dressed up as children from 100 years ago and got to experience a morning of what school was like in the past. This included reciting ‘John and Betty’, sitting in rows and playing marbles. The students were thoroughly engaged when a panel of special visitors, including grandparents and great grandparents came to talk about the past and growing up in a different generation. The students created lots of questions that they wanted to ask. The students have also had the task of interviewing a parent or special friend about what life was like when they were a child. The information gathered was used to create a Venn Diagram, allowing the students to compare growing up in the past to the current day.
