Rubber Band Racer We spent some time studying renewable energy and different types of renewable materials. Making this rubber band racer was a STEM activity we did to explore the different ways to create energy and movement. We had to carefully insert the chassis pieces into the cardboard box to make the rubber band racing car balanced. Working together in the groups we fitted both wooden pieces before putting on the wheels. It was quite tricky adding in the rubber bands during this step but with a little help we managed to get it in. The Race! At the end of the lesson...

STEAM: We decided to get creative and make our very own planets! We researched planets, painted them, gave them names and constructed the posters! We wrote and presented to the class what it would be like to live on these planets! STEM Challenge: Launching an Asteroid Our first challenge was to create a catapult which would allow us to launch our “asteroids”. We had a competition to see whose asteroid travelled the...

STEM Flying ‘Ghosts’ We learned all about electricity this week – especially static electricity. We created our own static electricity by rubbing balloons on our hair and jumpers making them stick to the walls and windows. We made some of our ‘ghosts’ fly using the static from our balloons! Pumpkin Painting We had great fun painting pumpkins as a group – deciding on characters together, painting and drawing their faces! We will raffle off Olaf, the Ninja Turtle and Scarecrow tomorrow and kids can take them home for their Mid-Term! Pumpkin...

2nd class were so excited to return to school! they have created some fantastic art work by drawing self-portraits, designing their own masks and writing about their goals for this year! 2nd really enjoyed practising their cursive handwriting using whiteboards, writing with pencil and markers! We created symmetrical names which turned out to be our very own name monsters. We also are trying to enjoy the September sunshine by getting outside for our SESE! Working in pairs we had to search for things in our yard that stimulated our senses.
