Year One has been busy this term and the end of the year is drawing near. We have been learning about seasons in Science and looking closely at weather changes and how living things adapt to survive all these seasonal changes.
In History this term we are sharing ways our families celebrate special events. We are learning how some celebrations can become traditions in our families and have been fascinated when reading about celebrations in other countries around the world!
We are looking forward to our excursion to Sea World later in the term and all the special memories that will no doubt be made during our last few weeks of our schooling for 2018.

This term has been a whirlwind. The Year 2 classes have been learning all about the ‘Life Cycles’ of plants and various animals. We have all been fascinated by the hungry silkworms and their amazing ability to cocoon. Hopefully before the term ends we will see the transformation into a moth. We have also seen frog eggs hatch into tadpoles and are eagerly following their transformation into a frog. A very big thank you to Mrs Kelly Taylor and Mrs Mandy Ross for providing the animals to grade 2 classes. The last picture was supplied by Mrs Ross so that we can show the frog that spawned the eggs.

This term in science we are learning about living things. As part of our study of living things we went on an excursion to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. The students got to have some hands on experience with our Australian wildlife, holding a koala and feeding kangaroos. This excursion helped to enhance the students knowledge of biomes and of the amazing wildlife we have here in Australia. Thank you to all the parents who came along to help.
