Grade 2AL made simple iMovies about how bees make honey.
On Thursday 7th November, Grade 2 visited the Moonlit Sanctuary in Healsville. A firm favourite was feeding the kangaroos and wallabies. The rain certainly didn’t stop us. Here are some on our highlights from the day.
Jackson and Lachlan being licked by the shingle back lizard!
When the Wombat drunk it’s own urine! The students thought this was hilarious.
Mrs Montgomery being covered in the snake skin.
The cute ducks following us around the park.
Hearing the dingoes howling.
With help of the PFA, our JSC organised a disco for all students. We were encouraged to dress up in Yellow and bring a gold coin donation.
It’s a fabulous way to raise money for an important cause, and an opportunity to foster values of empathy, encourage student leadership, and give hope to those impacted by cancer.
On 19th August 2019 we dressed up in our favourite book character and met up with our buddies.
It was amazing to see these characters in our grade.
There were superheroes, princesses, animals, Inspector Gadget and even Robin Hood.
Darcy – Fantastic Mr Fox Quin – Gruffalo Emily – Mario Em J – Robin Hood
Jackson – Slappy from Goosebump Ruby C – Mary Lennox (Secret Garden) Ruby D – Matilda
Just to name a few.
When we did the hands on science incursion my favourite part was doing the table top bubbles. It was awesome. By Ruby C
I liked when we did the mini volcano experiment. By Sam
I liked holding the bubbles. By EmJ
The students undertook a water experiment to learn about density.
We added different amounts of sugar to dissolved warm water. Once cooled we added food colouring.
- Blue = 2 tablespoons
- Yellow = 4 tablespoons
- Red = 6 tablespoons
- Green = 8 tablespoons
The students transfered solution (most dense first) to a test tube using a pipette. They had to do this carefully and slowly. The colours won’t mix as they are different densities
