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….

Live Caterpillars in 2nd Class

20151001_075223This 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!
