Our class novel is 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty. It is set in the Victorian era (which we are learning about in history).

Maths

We enjoy applying our maths to problem solve, and working together to reason and explain our understanding.

Science

We are enjoying learning about 'Light'.

This week we made biscuits which demonstrated our understanding of Opaque, Translucent and Transparent materials. They were delicious!

Welcome to Class 2

Victorians

It was scary at first when we took part in a school day as Victorians. We would not like to be school children in the Victorian Era!

A Victorian Day Recount

Yesterday our class time travelled! We went back to the Victorian Era. The class suddenly found themselves in 1870! When we entered the classroom we saw the teachers dressed up, the dunce’s hat, chalk and slate, the tables lined up and the cane.

First Mrs Robinson checked our hands to see if they were clean. If they weren’t the teacher said “you must go and wash them.” At the start Jasmine and Max and Eli wore the dunce’s hat. Then we drew natural things with Madam Gail. It was an honour to use paper.

Next we did a bone hurting drill. It was kind of fun! Then we did arithmetic. We learnt about the kings and queens as well and even are times tables. Then we named the capital cities and countries. We did times tables with the abacus.

After that we did a game drill. It was very funny! Then we wrote a poem. It was: Children, you are very little and your bones are very brittle. Something like that. Victorian handwriting needed to be very very neat.

Then we had a Victorian playtime with skipping and hula hoops. It was very fun and nice. I really liked it. It wasn’t very long.

What a fun day!

Space

Our learning is interesting and exciting. We are practising being designers and engineers when making a space buggy to complete a mission to our chosen planet.
