Community 2's first excursion for 2021 was a visit to DreamCity. The excursion was chosen to enhance and compliment learning in the inquiry topic of Community. Students tested a variety of virtual careers in using high-tech equipment.
The activities students participated in included:
Community 2 students painted, decorated and constructed an Easter Bunny to hold a chocolate treat!
Students have been working with hands on materials, and playing games, to develop their maths skills.
Ride to School day was celebrated along with Harmony Day and Bullying NO WAY Day. Students had the opportunity to wear orange and ride or scoot to school. During lunch play time, students and teachers rode and scooted around the school and had lots of fun!
Year 3 to 6 students went to the Meadowglen International Athletics Track to participate in Lalor Primary School's annual athletics day. They participated in events such as discs, shot put, long jump, high jump, triple jump, 100m and 400m sprints. The year 3's were nervous but excited to participate for the first time, but they put in a fantastic effort and achieved personal successes.
Students wrote information reports about themselves and identified how they contribute to the school community in a positive way.
Students inquired into personal qualities that help make a community successful and discovered the importance of responsibility. Students identified some things they are responsible for at school.
The snap lock down in term 1 didn't stop Community 2 from performing at their best. Teaching and learning continued at home with the use of one-to-one iPads, online Webex meetings and Wabisabizen learning tasks.
The Circus Crew provided 3 sessions of fun, hands on circus activities designed to develop skills of participation, concentration, teamwork, co-ordination and increased confidence.
The whole school community participated in a Kaboom Tabloid Sport incursion. Students enjoyed events such as Fruit Frisbee, Giant Dart Board, Wacky Wheel, Mini Golf, Parachute and much, much more. The sun was shining and so were the students' happy faces!
