WATER CATCHMENTS

For SOSE we created our own mini water catchments. First we got a milk carton with no milk and cut the top off. Then we filled it up with sand and then put leaf litter on one and left the other one with just sand. Then we poured water over them. When we poured water over the leaf litter not much came out, but on the sand one lots came out because there was nothing blocking the water.

Below is a step by step slide show of how we went about making our water catchments.

ARTWORK for the CAMPUS FAIR

weavingDear Parents / Carers,

Next week we are going to create ‘Rainbow Webs’ for our artwork contribution to the Campus Fair. We are asking all students to bring in at least one colourful ball of wool each for Monday (you are more than welcome to bring in more if you like). We would also greatly appreciate any parent helpers during next week. If you are able to come in and help during next week and have gone through the appropriate volunteer induction process, please let your child’s teacher know. We may need to send your child’s artwork home to be worked on, if it proves to be a slow process. If it does come home your assistance with this would be very helpful.

Thank you in anticipation.

Regards,

Scott, Donna and Tania

Year 2/3 Team.

As you can see I have been busy weaving myself. Don’t forget your wool for MONDAY!

Handwriting

In handwriting we have learnt the letters Aa, Bb, Cc, Dd and Ee so far.We learn to write letters every friday and yr3s have to do two lines of cursive and yr 2s need to do two lines with kicks on their letters. I like handwriting, because it teaches me neater writing while learning how to write letters. All of us need to write a sentence that Mr. Baldock writes as well. Handwriting is a very fun subject. 🙂

“Handwriting is one of my favourite subjects”

What we are doing in PE

Pe Chicken

In P.E. we have been using hula-hoops. We have been doing chicken tag. There are 4 people with rubber chickens. They try to get people with the chickens. We also play rob the nest. Rob the nest is where you get bags out of the bucket. When it is empty you turn the bucket over. Then you steal from the other team’s nests.

Maths: Angles

In maths we have been working on angles. There are three different types of angles we looked at, right angles, obtuse angles and acute angles. The right angle is two lines measured at ninety degrees. An obtuse angle is greater than ninety degrees. An acute angle is measured less than ninety degrees.These angles can help you with shapes. They can be found in many places. Some example are: on a square, a door, a bed and many other things.

Below are some pictures of an activity we did where we had to make these angles with a partner using our bodies.
