We have returned to the start of a very busy Term Four. The Year Two level have a lot of great things to look forward to including celebrating their First Reconciliation and starting our water safety program.
Thank you to all the mums and dads who came to the Reconciliation Faith Night and families who attended the commitment Masses. Hopefully at home in the coming weeks you can spend time together as a family talking about the Sacrament of Reconciliation – what is the difference between the different times we say sorry? what are examples of SINS? how do you ask for forgiveness? how do we show forgiveness? You might even like to ask mum and dad if they can remember their First Reconciliation.
This Friday we will have a special day focused completely on learning and thinking more about Reconciliation.
In Week One we had a big revision of all things about numbers. We may have forgotten a few things. At home it would be good to keep practicing writing 3 and 4 digit numbers, especially ones with zeros in them (like 2045, 560, 4902, etc). Can you teach mum and dad about these symbols: <, > and = ? Someone could write some numbers on slips of paper and time how quickly you can order them. We also practiced adding and subtracting numbers on an empty number line. You could keep doing some of these at home. Any practice you do, bring in to show Mrs Sorockyj or me.
Aslo remember to keep up your nightly reading and filling in your reading journal. It will not be long before you are in Grade Three and having to be responsible for a diary. Having you Reading Journal handed in is good practice at being an independent learner!
