Halloween

 

They’re creepy and they’re kooky,

Mysterious and spooky,

They’re all together ooky,

They’re the kids of grade 2C!

Mini-beast Incursion

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!

Working with Adjectives

Grandparents’ Day

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’.

We love cooking in 2C. So far, we have made both pancakes and ANZAC biscuits. We learnt about the history behind these foods and how they came about. We had a lot of fun cooking these items together and they definitely passed the taste test! Bon appetite!

 

Rainbow Milk

We placed 4 drops of different coloured food dyes in each corner of a saucer of full-cream milk.  The fat in the milk held the food dye in placeWe then put a little bit of detergent onto the end of an ear bud and placed it in the centre of the dish.  WOW!!  The detergent broke the seal of the fat and the food dye started to disperse creating RAINBOW MILK!!

Science with 2C

Recently, we have become scientists.  We have been finding out all about homogeneous and hetrogeneous mixtures.  Basically that means mixtures that cannot be easily separated and mixtures that can be easily separated.  We’ve conducted some simple experiments and observed what happened.  Amazing!  We also used the same ingredients to make some chocolate crackles.  Delicious!

Book Character Dress Up Day

On the 23rd August we had a book character dress up day. This was to help celebrate Children’s Week as well as to raise money for MS (Multiple Sclerosis). We all looked fabulous in our costumes and enjoyed parading with our buddies for the mums and dads. Ashan won ‘best dressed’ from our grade. He came as Mr Twit from Roald Dahl’s fabulous book, The Twits!
