This term, we are learning all about ‘fun on the farm’ and Prep this month has been busy, busy, busy! Our teachers have introduced us to ‘heart’ and ‘brain’ words, and we are using these, along with our knowledge of sounds to begin reading and writing.
In Science, we have been exploring different materials and commenting on their observable properties. In the coming weeks, we will plan, design and create our own boat and test these, allowing us to use a variety of scientific enquiry and critical thinking skills.
Our learning this term will culminate in a fantastic incursion where we really will experience ‘Fun on the Farm’. More information to come throughout the term!
One of our favourite times of the week is Chapel, especially the songs with actions. We have also begun sharing our memory verses at Chapel!

Year 2: Water, Water and More Water
The year 2 classes this term are studying Water safety, Water Cycles and Water Conservation. Unlike my era of education our kids are well informed on how they can preserve our natural water sources. In the past two weeks they have been doing group work exploring the Water Cycle and making their own Water Cycle exemplar.
At the end of Term 1 our classes had fun in creating some awesome Easter artwork. It was a great way to wind down after a term of hard work.
