We have a very busy day planned for the kids so please make sure they are at school no later than 8.45am. They will need to have:- Packed lunch with as much healthy, nude food as possible! Please include the usual water bottle, fruit snack, morning tea and lunch. The children will only need a CLEARLY LABELLED disposable plastic bag to hold their lunch and a waterproof jacket (just in case of rain). Gum Boots/Wet weather shoes are optional If cold weather is predicted you might like to throw in a beanie. There is limited storage at the Sanctuary so NO SCHOOL BAGS. . If you would like to come along, you are more than welcome. Please let your classroom teacher know if you are planning to join us. You will be required to pay for entry, so please refer to their website for further details. Bus space is limited but a few lucky parents may be invited to join us on the bus, so let us know if you would like your name in the hat! If you don’t get chosen, you might like to organise car-pooling and follow the bus or meet us there. Aunt Molly from Woolloomooloo is such a character! She just loves knitting and wool but doesn’t like to sew. Aunt Molly loves puppies and kittens but doesn’t like dogs or cats! She loves trees but not flowers. Aunt Molly is married to Uncle Harry and they have three children because they didn’t want to have two – Tommy, Sally and Billy. Can you think of anything Aunt Molly might like or dislike?

PHYSICAL EDUCATION This term Year 2 students will be doing Animal warm up games such as “Octopus”, Rats and Rabbits and others. Lessons will be focusing on catching and throwing skills in modified activities and minor games LOTE (Chinese/Mandarin) This term the students will continue to develop their communication skills in Mandarin and intercultural understanding of China. Students will develop their oral skills of describing the features of the selected animals in Mandarin. Incorporating the year level PYP central idea, students will explore native animals in China and their habitats. They will also study mythical creatures in Chinese stories, culture and fables as part of their intercultural studies. VISUAL ARTS We plan to explore animals and their habitat through Art. We will be looking at both modern day Animal Art by Graeme Base, 1800’s by Henri Rousseau. We will see the similarities in their work, with detailed backgrounds depicting intricate habitats coupled with the inclusion of animals. We will be creating a mixed media piece, using painting, collage and developing knowledge of size in relation to placement in a picture. 2HT – Lajuree Chakma 2HM – Declan Randazzo 2DA – Carli Szabo 2CT – Emily Hill 2RA – Thomas Gazea This week’s challenge Try to stay excited and enthusiastic about learning and don’t give up when it gets hard!
