Welcome to Grade 1/2...


Term 1 in Grade 1/2 - 2019: 


1C Releases their Monarch Butterflies:

We have had an exciting few weeks in 1C. As part of our Minibeast theme we were lucky enough to look after caterpillars in our classroom. Students have been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly and have been observing our class caterpillars change into a pupa inside a chrysalis and then emerge as beautiful Monarch butterflies. 1C released the butterflies into the garden on Friday.

Skip Counting in 2A:

In our grade mathematics session this week, Grade 2A wrote their own skip counting pattern. They were challenged to create models of their numbers.

All About Capacity by 1B


This week our grade 1 students have been learning about capacity. We have been investigating how many marbles our playdough boats can hold. We compared the capacity of our boat with our friend’s boat. We also explored capacity in the sand pit. We used cups of sand to find out the capacity of different sized containers. We all had lots of fun learning about capacity this week!

1A’s Marvellous Mini-beast Experience

During our one hour ‘Mini-Beast Incursion’ each group rotated through the Bugtopia Tent, where they handled a selection of minibeasts, including stick insects and butterflies. In the other stations, students caught aquatic minibeasts, viewed bugs close up with microscopes and designed their own version of bugs and their features. Students even made colourful warning-coloured bracelets – just like the warning colours of our new class pets – caterpillars!!!
