Last week we were learning about 2-D shapes and we completed some active, fun tasks! First, we made the shapes using our bodies….we came up with all sorts of ways to work together to make different 2-D shapes!
This week we have 3 new additions to our classroom here in 2nd Class! Meet Bob, Bubbles and Buster our new class pets! Bob and Bubbles were named by us and they are brother and sister! We adopted Buster on Wednesday and he is settling in well with the other fish! We take turns feeding them and making sure they’re happy in their new home!
Last week, in 2nd Class, our topic was; “Houses and Homes”. We learned all about houses and homes in the past, houses and homes all around the world and the various materials used to build them.
As part of our science lesson, we were given a challenge. Each group was given a certain material and asked to work together to build a house which was wind proof. We worked with paper, lego, cubes, play dough, lollipop sticks and match sticks to build our houses. In the end, our teacher tested them to see if they were wind proof! Here’s what we worked together to achieve….
This term, in 2nd Class, we have been lucky enough to get live caterpillars again in our class (Thanks to Cara and her parents!). We had them in the final term of 1st Class, but when the summer holidays arrived, the butterflies still hadn’t emerged! So we are looking forward to seeing the full transformation this time around!! Here are some photographs of their time with us so far! Will we update you as the caterpillars begin to transform into butterflies!
