2011 has been a busy year of study, change and learning for the class of 2 to 4. Term 2, saw an excursion to the Currumbin Wildlife
Sanctuary to find out about Australian animals and wildlife. This event was followed by the preparation and presentation of reports on what had been observed and learnt. Also this term, the class visited the Science Museum where the interactive exhibits proved most popular.
At the start of Term 3, the students felt sad to farewell their teacher Mrs Najibah, who left to take up a position in the U.A.E. The
students though provided their new teacher Mr Donaldson with an extremely warm welcome. This term we studied an integrated
unit about the water cycle, learning about the way nature recycles water and what a precious resource it is. We also learnt about
fluid measurement and we performed plays based on the water cycle.
Our class did a project on towns, built models of towns using geometric shapes and made presentations to the class. An excursion
to Ashmore Ten Pin Bowling Center proved to be an enjoyable way to follow up on the ten pin bowling skills we had been learning.
