Today the author Kym Lardner came to Coburg North Primary School and entertained the Grade 2s with drawings, stories and songs. The class thought it was hilarious, and everybody loved watching Kym draw some of the students and tell us stories. We even got to watch some students act out a story for us!
Here are some pictures of Kym’s drawings and our actors at work:
On Wednesday, the Grade 2 students had a whole lot of fun during out maths incursion! Students all became builders and accepted the challenge of creating representations and problem solving structure and balance. It was amazing to see how engaged students were and how cooperatively they could work together. The structures built were nothing short of amazing and at times, towered above the teachers. If your child is interested in partaking in any further workshops please access the link below for event details:
Please have a look below at some photographs from this incursion.
On Friday the 8th September in memory of Liz Collins, CNPS will take part in Book Week. This event will coincide with Literacy and Numeracy Week and will see all students and teachers coming to school dressed up as their favourite book character or author! For example, you may wish to come dressed as Matilda, Harry Potter, Dr.Seuss, Where’s Wally, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Madeleine, or Little Red Riding Hood. We are asking all who participate to kindly donate a gold coin. All money raised from this event will go to towards purchasing books, in memory of Liz Collins.
At 9.05am, we will have a special parade outside on the basketball courts (weather permitting), to give everyone a chance to show off their fancy costumes. If the weather is poor, the parade will be moved into the hall. Parents and friends are more than welcome to attend. Thank you in advance for your kindness and support.
We look forward to seeing a sea of book characters at CNPS!

2017 National Literacy and Numeracy Week-2858d0w
In Term 3, Grade 2 students will explore ‘Toys and Games’, as part of our integrated studies unit. Students will be learning about toys and games through the ages, studying the history as well as looking at how technology has influenced toy production. In order to fully immerse students in the unit, we would appreciate if families could kindly donate/supply any old toys or games that are no longer in use. Please only bring in pre-loved toys and games that you would be happy to part with, in case of accidental damage or loss.
We also require donations of toy catalogues. If you have any donations please give them to your child’s classroom teacher. Any and all donations are welcomed and appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your help 🙂
The Grade 2 Team
The maths incursion has been rescheduled for the last week of term. For the Grade 2s it will be going ahead on Thursday the 29th of June.
Thank you for your patience.
