Hello Grade 2 Parents! A peek at what we did this week!
Language:

different aspects of the books such as setting,
characters, plot and themes. (Please see the

of numbers.
- We practiced making estimates using
probability.
- We completed our Unit 7 assessment- we will
send home the reflection sheets and results

Science:
-We experimented making things that used
force, motion and energy to function. We filled
out scientific investigation sheets and then
built catapults and boats.
- We made a design to make our OWN creation
for our summative assessment next week.
Please see the letter that was sent home about
materials 

Some important reminders and news.
1. Please make sure you have sent ALL reading books back to school by Monday
March 24th this way we have a chance to get all the book sets sorted and ready
for distribution in term 3. Please encourage your child to read RAZ kids over
the break or borrow books from a friend or the library!
2. Sign- up sheets are posted outside the classrooms for the three way
conferences. If your child takes the school bus please email your homeroom
teacher what time of day you would like to meet on Wednesday March 25th or
Thursday March 26th and she will fit you in. If you are travelling over those
two days please inform your teacher so that we can arrange a meeting at an
alternative day.
3. We have sent your child home with a list of items they require in order to build
their assessment next week. Please find this list in their school bag and ensure
they have these items at school on Sunday- March 22nd 
