Push and Pull with Parachutes

This term, the Year 2 students have been learning about forces and how they effect the way objects move as part of their Inquiry unit. The students worked collaboratively with a partner to design, build and test their very own parachute to explore push and pull forces such as gravity and drag. After testing their parachute by dropping it from the top of the playground, they experimented with different variables and made changes to improve their parachute.

Latitude

This term for Curiosity we have been learning about forces and gravity. On Tuesday the 28th of November the Year 2’s went to Latitude. At Latitude we completed lots of different activities. We went on an very high obstacle course and did some rock climbing. We also got to jump, play dodge ball and shoot basketball hoops on the big trampolines. After our session we went to Bundoora Park and ate lunch. We all really enjoyed the day and had a lot of fun!!

Below are some pictures from the day.

Multicultural Week

At the end of Term 2, the Year 2 students all participated in a Multicultural Week.

On Tuesday we looked at Indigenous Australians. The students did charcoal drawings, decorated boomerangs and got to taste ‘bush tucker’.

On Wednesday we looked at Multicultural Australians. We walked to the Greenvale shopping centre to investigate food and grocery items available from other countries, we cooked rice and used chopsticks to eat it and we made necklaces from macaroni.

On Thursday we studied Australia. The students dressed up in Aussie bush attire and were able to try some Australian food- vegemite sandwich and lamingtons.

We all had a fantastic week celebrating Multiculturalism in Australia. Below are some photos of the students having fun!
