Estimating & Measuring

Today we are learning how to estimate the length of an object and then measure the length correctly using centimetres and metres. 

Longer vs Shorter

This morning we are learning about length. We are making meaning by comparing objects. Which is longer? Which is shorter? How do we know?

Amazing Mazes!

Miss Hinge and Mrs Lawry's maths groups have been learning about position and orientation for the last week.

We came up with some words that are useful for giving directions and describing position. Forwards, backwards, left, right etc. We talked about compass directions - North, South, East and West. The important ones we had to remember were quarter turn and half turn.

Year 2 and 3 Sleepover!

On Friday night we had a year 2 and year 3 sleepover at school. We had so much fun during our own Amazing Race. We had milo and cookies for supper and toast and fruit for breakfast. It was very different sleeping in our learning hubs but most of us got some sleep.

Travel Wise

This morning we have been learning all about being safe around roads. 

We considered the different hazards we might come across when walking, biking or scootering to school. 

We used a map to find where we live and we talked about the different ways we travel to school.

We practiced crossing the road safely and looking for sneaky driveways on our wheels.

The Animal Land

We created this movie for our break through learning. It is about friendships. We were very determined because it was our first time making a movie so it put us in the pit. We used fabric for the background and we used the app 'I Can Animate'. We used sound effects to make it more interesting. We made our movie about friendships because we think everyone should be nice to each other.

Ciara's Athletics Day Recount

Athletics day recount by Ciara. 

On Friday it was ATHLETICS DAY! First I  did the three legged race and my buddy was Mishara. Then i did the long jump and it was fun. I had to jump on the wood as high as i can. My favourite one was the sprinting because I am really fast and i came second. After i did the long jump i did sprinting and for the first round Maria came first and Reilly came second and  I came third. for the second round Reilly came first I came second and Mishara came third. Next I did throwing. The people that were in my team were Kyla, Anna, Frankie and Aston. For the sack race i was in the yellow team. the leaders were all boys! Finally  I got to watch the runners do their race. Zara, Lucy, Emma and Katie did the first round, then Emma , Lucy, Sarah, Anna and Zara did the second race! Then there was a teacher race and miss wang won! Miss Wang  was like a cheetah when she was running in the teacher race. Miss Cambell was close to miss wang so thats why she nearly came second! My athletics was so fun! Why did Miss Cambell come second ? how did Mr Lewzey come third?
