Kicking off Term 3

What a start we've had to our final term of Second Class. We have been hard at work on money in Maths and made our own shop. We have been combining History, Science and Art  to design and construct mini models of the GPO in groups. We read the story of the "Rainbow Fish," had lots of fun creating dramas based on the story, and made our own Rainbow Fish with clay. Best of all... we took a sunny morning trip to the Diamond Park!

Back in Action

WOW!!! We could not be prouder or more impressed with our wonderful, enthusiastic, fun, resilient 2nd Classers. They have settled back to school so well, it's as if they've never left. We had an amazing, sunshine filled week. Have a look at pictures of our extra PE time, out at the big tree looking for signs of Spring, making right angles into pictures, experimenting with magnets, painting cherry blossoms, and so much more. 

Happy Lunar New Year

2nd Class have been learning all about Lunar New Year for the last two weeks. We even drew a cartoon ox on Zoom together to celebrate the Year of the Ox! Happy Lunar New Year to all!

Green Schools

2nd Class were in charge of all things Green Schools for the month of December. We made a video to show you what we learnt.

Basketball Coaching

We are absolutely loving basketball coaching. It is so much fun! Have a look at us shooting hoops.

Learning about Sound

Wow, we have been super busy in 2nd Class! We have learnt all about sound in Science.  Ask us and we will tell you all about sound waves, vibrations and how our ear receives sound. We created sound maps outside to show what sort of sounds we can hear in the city. Also, we recycled materials to make musical instruments and investigated the loud and soft sounds we can make with them. 

Our Animal Drawings

Ms O'Callaghan and Ms Whiston's classes have been working on our drawing skills. We learnt all about shapes, lines and shading. Our teachers were blown away by our drawing skills and we were chuffed with ourselves as well. We are so proud of our work, take a look!

World Kindness Day, 13th November 2020

In 2nd Class we are delighted to spread our message of kindness. Make sure you do a random act of kindness this week!

Fun and Games in 2nd Class

2nd class are working very hard since they returned to school. The children are using Seesaw to access homework assignments and have started GAA practice with our coach Mark.  The children have worked so hard we even found time to have some Golden Time this week. 

Wellbeing Scrapbooks

We have been talking about wellbeing and how we keep our bodies and minds healthy. We wrote a list of things we can do that make us happy. Then we stuck them into our new scrapbooks which we will be keeping our wellbeing activities in. Our scrapbooks will be our keepsakes of Second Class.
