To help JDG with writing their narratives, we focused on creating great characters for our stories. Getting inspired by the book “The Marvelous Fluffy Squishy Itty Bitty” we came up with some wonderful adjectives and used them to create some marvellous creatures of our own. After a very crafty session this is what we came up with.
Our beans have completely sprouted out of the soil, they even have leaves on them. It was super exciting to see this happen almost over night.
We had an up close look at our Beautiful coloured flowers. We used magnifying glasses to look at how the dye had travelled in the flower’s stem and petals, we had to record our findings by drawing what we saw.
We have had a pretty crazy week in JDG even though we were in the classroom the whole time!
The theme for education week was TECHNOLOGY, we invited our parents in to discover the app Quiver. It was extremely fun to be able to show off the interesting creatitions.
We created a Puzzle of Strengths which we decorated each piece with positive things about ourselves.
We also have some superstar puzzlers who completed their first puzzle together… Well done Amber and Samuella!
In Inquiry we did an experiment to learn how water travels up stems to help plants live. Have a look at how gorgeous our flowers look after just one day.
Also our seeds are growing really well, they have stronger roots, Check it out…
Other things we have done this week are our very first computer session where we learnt to log on to our individual profiles, thanks heaps to Mr D’Arma for helping us. We also were very lucky to have Linda come in and teach us some awesome Italian. We learnt numbers, a song, colours and played some games using the Italian words we had learnt.
After a very jam packed week at school we are all looking forward to a nice break over the weekend to rest up before another crazy busy week of learning!
JDG looked at the book Jack and the Beanstalk this week. We did lots of different reading activities based on the book as well as look at how seeds grow, just like the magical beans that Jack had.
Here are some JDG students in the process of planting our magic beans…
Stay tuned for updates on our growing magical beans!
This week started with our school Athletics Day. We had lots of fun even though it was a bit chilly down at the track. We did hurdles, sack race, high jump, frisbee, vortex and relays. Everyone participated and tried their best. Fraser (Green) was the overall winner and our very own Tegan Waters was Grade 2 Girls Champion! Well done Tegan we are very proud of you! Stay tuned for some action shots from Athletics Day!
On Tuesday we got a new girl in our class. Her name is Chloe and she has come all the way from Queensland. Welcome Chloe, we hope you enjoy being in our class and at Bourchier Street.
We had the Colour Run today with the rest of the school to celebrate “World Colouring Day”. After assembly the students from BSPS set out for a run around the track but this time there would be teachers surround the track armed with bottles of special coloured powder to throw all over us! It was a super fun afternoon, check out how colourful we ended up!
