Year 2 – Miss Jennifer Wijeratne
Hello and welcome to Room 12, my name is Jennifer Wijeratne. I am a Year 2 teacher at Cassia Primary School. In our classroom we will strive to be active and successful learners.
At Cassia Primary School we use the program Talk 4 Writing to teach reading and writing skills. In Room 12 we will be looking at different forms of texts such as poems, narratives and non-fiction texts that relates to Australian culture. Students will be identifying the elements of different text structures and building on their creativity and spelling rules. In reading students will be working on their comprehension, concepts of print and fluency.
In Mathematics we are currently using a program called PRIME. In Number and Algebra, we are learning how to multiply and divide numbers within the 2, 4, 5 and 10 multiples. We will be using written and mental strategies to solve these problems. Throughout Semester Two we will also be learning about volume, mass, money, seasons, chance and much more! We love to interact with maths and apply it into our everyday lives!
Humanities and Social Sciences
In Humanities and Social Sciences, we will be focusing on continents around the world and a few of the cultures that can be found on the continents. Students will be learning about the importance of accepting and recognising different cultures in the world.
For Health Room 12 we will be using the program Friendly Schools Plus. In friendly schools plus we learn about accepting each other’s differences and how to make new meaningful friendships.
Information Communication Technology
Room 12 will be learning about design and creation of products to meet the needs of society, for Design and Technology. In Digital Technology we will be looking at digital systems and patterns in data. For Semester Two we will be learning about different programs on computers and iPads that we can use to present information.
Together Room 12 will work hard to be responsible, resilient and successful learners.
