Bridge Making

G2 are learning about bridges in Science with Ms. Reape. They looked at the famous bridges first and then were asked to design and make their own using matchsticks and marshmallows. We definitely have some future engineers in G2! It was great fun.

Chickpea Curry

Before the Easter break G2 made chickpea curry and some porridge bread. Everybody tasted both dishes and there was very little food left at the end of the day!

G2 Measure Rainfall

G2 spent two weeks measuring the rainfall in the school yard.

They made rain gauges using old plastic bottles.

9cm of water was collected over two weeks!

They used it to water the vegetables they have been growing as part of the GIY (Grow it Yourself) project.

Easter Egg Hunt

There was great excitement in G2 this morning as the boys went on an Easter egg hunt. For each laminated egg they found they got to exchange it for a mini egg. There was one golden egg and the prize for finding it was a chocolate bunny.

Bee Bots

Ms. Glacken gave us the bee bots. We had to code them to go a certain place and we made a maze so the bee bots would go through the maze. There were four stations and it was lots of fun.

Water gauges

We made water gauges and tied them to a pole. We were looking to see how many centimeters of rainfall we got each day. On Friday we measured five centimeters of rain. We enjoyed it.
