On Tuesday 21st of August, Greenvale Primary had our annual Book Week Dress Up day! Students and teachers dressed up as their favourite book character, or matched the theme of ‘Find You Treasure’. There were lots of fabulous Year 2 Students with amazing, detailed and creative costumes. We saw Where’s Wally?, Harry Potter, Spiderman, Alice in Wonderland and much more! The students were involved in a parade where they walked to show off their stunning costumes to other students, teachers and visiting parents. WOW!
During Term 3, a group of Year 1 and Year 2 students were invited to participate in an excursion at Living Legends in Woodlands Park, Greenvale. Our students were selected to be part of the ‘Horses Birthday’ Celebrations where they explored information about the Melbourne Cup, visiting the stables and meeting past winners of the famous race! The students participated in arts and crafts throughout the day, which included; decorating horse shoes, colouring in and face painting. In the afternoon the students saw how the horses where weighed, they then went onto the scales to see how many students they had to put together to make them weigh the same as a horse. They also got to feed the horses some carrots and gave them a friendly pat. We all had a very exciting and educational day!
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.
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.
During Term 3 our Curiosity unit is Earth and Space. On Wednesday the 30th of August we went to Scienceworks. At Scienceworks we went to the Planetarium where we watched a short movie called ‘Tilt’. We also got to see what the Melbourne sky looks like at night time, we saw lots of stars and constellations. During our visit to Scienceworks we also got to explore ‘Sportworks’ and ‘Think Ahead’. We had a wonderful day and leant lots of new things!
On Wednesday the 23rd of August, Greenvale Primary School celebrated Book Week.
In the morning all the Year 2’s came together for a parade. We had lots of different book characters, Harry Potter, Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, Willy Wonka and Robin Hood just to name a few! Below are some photos of us on the day 🙂
The Year 1 and 2 students have listened to a story about Il Pappagallo (The Cockatoo). They presented short plays to each other and have taken home their puppets and script. Please encourage them to share with you at home.
