We are 2P!

We are very excited and happy to be in Grade 2. We are older, stronger, more sensible and reliable than we were in Grade 1.

We love our new classroom, it is very bright and sunny; we are enjoying the exciting things we have in it. Together we have made class rules that we want to follow all year long.

We are enjoying our first Unit of Inquiry learning about mini-beasts and making habitats for them. We have become expects on butterflies. We are looking forward to our other Units throughout the year.

Our aim for the year is to be caring, helpful and friendly members of the IST community, we want to look out for new people at IST and play with them so they don’t feel alone.

Please come and visit us in 2P.

Introducing the Kung Fu Praying Mantis!


Together in class, students worked with Mr. McKillip and Ms. Jess to brainstorm ideas about what it means to be a Kung Fu Praying Mantis. Students discussed the action and disipline of Kung Fu and then decided to apply those ideas to their life at school. Students wrote down their own ideas and Mr. McKillip edited and revised the final students’ statement.Kung Fu Mantis
