Last week some of our students discovered small caterpillars on the Swan plants. They used their observational science skills to study the small creatures and to share with each other. It was lovely to observe the students, as the sharing went across age groups.

Welcome back to school. We have had a very busy first week. Mrs Allen's room is looking fantastic with its white beams and Room 2 is on its way to having shiny new white beams. Our rooms are going to be light and airy.
This week we have been learning about Statistics in Maths. We did a survey about the kinds of icecreams we like in Rooms 1&2. We then recorded our results on a tally chart and using a pictograph. We also did a problem solving activity in groups. We learnt to listen to each other's ideas.
|Problem Solving activity|

Today we read a book about Kangaroos in our reading group. These are some facts we learnt about:
Kangaroos have big strong legs that they use for jumping. They Bounce along with their tails behind them.
A baby kangaroo gets out of its pouch when it is six months old.
All kangaroos can hear well. They can smell and see well too.
Mother Kangaroos stand still so that their joeys can climb back into the pouch. A group of Kangaroos is called a mob.
