Congratulations on surviving Week 1 of Remote Learning. It has definitely been new learning for all of us and I need to thank you and your grownups for your patience and support.
Below are some resources and lessons to be done during Week 2. The lessons have links to worksheets and websites that have been included.
Links commonly used:
Students have their passwords in their diary for the above websites.
For our class meetings, we will be using Webex instead of Google Meets. The links for our Grade 2 and 3 meeting room is on Compass for adults to access.
Our meeting times will always be at 10-10:30am Monday to Friday. Attached is my timetable which will show the times when I can be contacted if students or parents have any questions
If you are experiencing any problems, please email the school -
Whole School Wellbeing Activity.
Each week we will have a social, emotional or wellbeing activity. You can do this at any time during the week. They are not long activities.
This weeks activity is on Gratitude. Watch the clip, do the activity and send in a photo.
Parents can also send in photos of themselves too :)
This is a nice reflection of what we have to be thankful for, especially in the current circumstances.

Writing - Word Hunt
Watch the clip
Below is a summary of the activity that is in the clip
Decide the area you are going to use
(inside the house, outside, or both!). Go
for a walk and look for words. Draw a map
of your area and record a word you see in
each of these areas on the map.
Seven or eight words is a good number to
collect. The challenge is then to include all
these words in a piece of writing and to
make the ideas flow. Give your work to a family member and see if they can find your words in each of the areas.
You do not have to print the sheet off if you don’t have a printer - just complete the work in your writing book.
Sheet – example
Sheet – blank
Maths – Location
Bird’s eye view Activity : Place 5 or 6 items
on the floor. Look down on them and draw
Draw a Birds Eye View of the items on your
desk - think about the shapes and sizes
Extension Activity – Ebony’s Run Sheet
Reflection: How did you know where to draw things? How do you know they were in the correct place?

Part One - 5 min activity
· Go into your garden and sit or lie down.
· Look around and what do you see?
· Close your eyes. What can you hear?
· Pay attention to the sounds close by
and far away.
· What can you feel? How does the
ground feel beneath you? What does the breeze feel like on your skin?
· What can you smell?
· Pay attention to your breath entering your lungs and leaving your body. Take some deep breaths.
· Go into the garden and look closely at the plants and the ground. What interesting things can you see? Maybe It’s some ants carrying food, or a colourful flower, or a beetle scurrying home.
· Take a photo of the most interesting thing you see and send the photo and information about it to the school email address.
· Have fun and be creative!
