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!
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.
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!
