Hop Skip and Step Into Prep!
We have had a great start to Prep for 2018. This term we are focusing on “God made me special”. Our Prep classes have already begun learning about sounds with our Soundwaves program and Math concepts with hands-on experiences. We have been learning new songs, dances and bible verses. The students have been excited to wear their uniforms and meet new friends. It has been great getting to know our new cohort of students and their families. Thank you to all Prep families who have helped their children have a smooth transition into Prep. We are looking forward to a great year in Prep H and Prep K!
From Ms. Kunne and Ms. Hollands
The fun never ends in Year 2. We have been very excited to build and try out our balloon powered vehicles over the last few weeks. Some of our vehicles have proven extremely successful – travelling for more than a metre! But don’t worry, the scientific adventures will continue. Our students are looking forward to our first incursion of the year. This incursion, “It’s Rocket Science”, will be held on Wednesday 21st of March. We will be exploring the forces involved in launching a rocket, and our young “Rocket Engineers” will experience the rush of adrenaline as they build and fly their very own rocket! Let’s AIM FOR THE STARS Year 2.
Year 3 – Logan in the Olden Days
In Year 3 this term, we have been learning about Logan and the surrounding areas in the past and how things have changed. The Year 3’s have also been learning about the Indigenous people from our area. To consolidate their learning, the students will be visiting The Beenleigh Historical Village and Museum, where they will get the chance to participate in activities the way they would have been done in the 1800s and early 1900s. Many questions have been asked, including whether kids used to wear shoes when the teachers were born and if there was electricity back then (the students seem to think we are much older than we actually are). We are looking forward to our excursion at the end of the term and being able to share photos with you.
