Welcome to Term 4!

cooltext1744178654Welcome back to our last term for the year! I hope you are all excited to be back and are looking forward to a great term! There will be lots of exciting things happening.


In week 2 we will be going on an excursion to Bundoora Park and visiting the heritage village of Cooper’s Settlement. We will learn lots about what it was like to live a long time ago.

In reading we will be working on heaps of new CAFE strategies, and as always, seeing how many new words we can learn to expand our vocabulary!

In writing we will be working on how to change someone’s mind using persuasive texts. This will be lots of fun! We will also learn about procedures – telling someone ‘how to’ do something.

In maths sharing and division are up first! Then we will keep on getting super fast at our mental maths and so much more!


Our CBL big idea is CHANGE! I won’t give away any more than that but you can start thinking about it to get ready…

Later on in the term is the Grade 2 SLEEPOVER! I’m sure you have all been hanging out for this for year’s one. It is always heaps of fun.


What are you looking forward to this term?
What are your goals for the rest of the year?

oo like a monkey: Spelling investigation

Each week in 2B we conduct a spelling investigation to understand the sounds made by different combinations of letters.

This week we are looking at the sound “oo” –  like the sound a monkey would make.

We will read the book “Would you rather…” by John Burningham to find some sounds.

WALT: find the letters that make the sound “oo”. 


  • Find words with the “oo” sound
  • Sort words into different spellings
  • Use this knowledge to read and write
