Year 2, Term 3

DSCN0669This term the Year two students have been exploring and investigating the effects of mixing materials together.

We learned about materials that don’t mix well and others that are difficult to separate.  Through hands-on investigations, students explored how changing the quantities of materials in a mixture can change its properties and uses.

We also learned about acrostic poems.  We wrote our names vertically down the side of a page. These letters are used to begin each line of the poem to describe ourselves.  We then creatively drew and decorated ourselves.

We hope you love our awesome work!

 

 

 

Robotics Activity in Year 2

IMG_6129

Students in Year 2 – LA 8 have recently been working with the Dash robots, programming them to “bowl” a ball and knock down bowling pins.  Students used the Blockly app to code the robots and rulers to calculate the distance the robots had to travel towards the pins without going over the line.  They worked in pairs to problem solve and investigated how the speed and direction of the robots and placement of the bowling ball affected their results.  LA 8 really enjoyed the challenge of the activity and loved engaging with the robots.
