Hello Everyone! 

Week 4....wow you are all doing so well. Again thank you and your grownups again for all of your patience and support. This week we start SUBTRACTION as our maths topic which includes fun interactive games and number line activities. I will also be setting up more Webex meetings with you to do some more small group teaching.

 

I am saving your work and also sending some feedback, so please keep sending your work through to the school email or my work email. This way we can see the wonderful work you're producing and share this work in our class meetings. 

Below are the resources and lessons to be done during Week 3. The lessons have links to worksheets, videos and websites that have been included. I have continued to include videos this week, which will hopefully explain some of the lessons in more detail.

Students have their passwords in their diary for the above websites. 

Class meetings

For our class meetings, we will continue to use Webex. 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. I usually ask students to bring some work to share with them.

Attached is our timetable, which will show the times when we can be contacted if students or parents have any questions.
