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.
