They’re creepy and they’re kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They’re all together ooky,
They’re the kids of grade 2C!
On Wednesday the 19th August, the grade 1 and 2 children had a visit from the Mini-beast Wildlife Centre. They got to see, and touch, a variety of our world’s little creatures including insects, arachnids, myriads and more. To keep them safe, the dangerous ones were kept in jars!
The children were very brave and got to learn many interesting facts about mini-beasts. A fun time was had by all!
As part of our inquiry unit of ‘Then and Now’ we decided to have a “Grandparents and Special Relatives Day” to celebrate and help us understand how it would have been to live in (and before) their day.We held a ‘Games of the Past’ morning where we participated in activities such as: quoits, marbles, skipping, Kacks, Pick Up Sticks, hula hoops, elastics and hopscotch. These games brought back many memories (including how flexible we used to be!). We had an awesome time together and gained a greater understanding of how sometimes ‘the simple things in life are often the best’.
