In Year Two, the children have loved learning about Living Things. This week we have been learning about things that we can categorise as living, non-living and never been alive. The children completed some work organising things into different categories. Then, we all decided to go on a hunt in the Secret Garden. They all enjoyed looking for living, non-living things and things that had never been alive.
In Year 4 the children have been taking part in a selection of activities on the topic of electricity. They played with a remote control car and a ‘Monster Surgery’ game and thought about how the games worked. They made their own circuits and discussed what life would be like without electricity. They even had a go at wiring their own plugs!
Please see attached our first newsletter since returning back to school.
Last week, Year Two had a very special visit from Guy at BugsnStuff. He arrived to school carrying a huge box and we were so curious to see what might have been inside! As our topic is ‘Living Things’, we knew that it must have been a living thing. As we walked into the classroom, we had not even realised that there was a stick insect hanging from the classroom washing line. After that, we got to see a tarantula, a millipede, a skink, a pyhton, a scorpion and even a tree frog!
We were so excited and discovered lots of new facts that we hadn’t known before. Did you know that a tarantula kicks off it’s hairs in defense as it makes the enemies eyes itchy?
We would like to say a HUGE thankyou to Guy as we found out lots of information ready for our new topic!
Welcome back! We would like to say a HUGE welcome back to everyone. We are very pleased that all of our children have settled into their new classes well and have enjoyed their first few days. We look forward to our journey through the year.
What a fantastic year we have had at St. Aloysius, full of lots of proud moments.
We would like to take this opportunity to say thankyou to all of our families for your continual support.
We hope you have a fantastic, relaxing summer break and we look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 3rd September 2019.
Take a look at our final newsletter for the year…
