On Wednesday the 14th of March, we walked to the Craigieburn Library. We visited the library to learn more about our local community and what happens at the library.
When we arrived at the Library, Josie showed us the Art Gallery. “The Art Gallery was beautiful” – Jaylee. We had a tour of the library, we saw people working at the library and people studying hard. We went into the children’s section. “We had story time, sang songs and did a craft activity.” – Lilly.
We asked lots of open ended questions to find out interesting facts about the Craigieburn Library.
Did you know, “the Craigieburn Library has 65,000 books!” – Curtis. “It was awarded the World’s best library in 2015!” – Arjun. “The walls of the library were made out of compacted mud that was found in the ground before the library was built. This helps keep the library nice and cool during hot weather.” – Divjot.
Our visit to the Craigieburn Library was very interesting!
Thanks for reading,
From 2B and Miss Davis.
Thank you to all parents, guardians and students for such a wonderful transition into Year 2, 2018. We really appreciate all the support and interactions that we have already had in regards to learning experiences within the classrooms.
We highly encourage all family members to be involved in your child’s learning throughout the year. To do this we have a range of communication methods that you can access for each class. Our wonderful and enthusiastic students will contributing to these with their work, feedback and photos displaying the learning they have been involved in. We would love if you could access these and look through them as a family to discuss the learning experiences. Class teachers and specialist teachers update these regularly.

- Do not chat with a stranger.
- Do not tell your personal details like school name, age and address.
- Do not follow people that you do not know and do not accept them to follow you.
- Tell your parents if you see something scary or if you are worried.
- Always use safe, smart passwords to protect your devices.
Remember to stay safe on the internet and if you’re not sure, ask an adult!
Thank you for reading our blog! Tell us how you stay safe online.

Year 2 Teachers
On Wednesday the 6th of December, we had the Year Two Sleepover at Aitken Creek Primary School. We changed into casual clothes. After that, we went to the learning neighbourhood and we played ‘The Invisible Ball’.
We played some outdoor games all together.
Then we came to free time on the playground.
Later, we had afternoon tea, which was fruit and biscuits.
After that, we had a scavenger hunt. In the scavenger hunt, we had to find the teachers and follow the instructions on the posters. Some were easy and some were hard. There were lots of people and activities.
We had delicious fish and chips for dinner.
After dinner we had free time and icy poles. Some people got their icy poles the next day. Then we went inside and and set up our sleeping bags, brushed our teeth, changed into pyjamas and watched a movie, which was Monsters University. Then we all went to bed.
In the morning we ate breakfast which included rice bubbles, cornflakes. toast and juice. After breakfast we brushed our teeth. We had to pack our sleeping bags, tidy up and change back into our uniform. Then we watched the Bee Movie and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in the morning.
We had a great time at the sleepover.
After going for a walk around the school and looking for different objects we saw in a video, we have created a survey about energy at home.
Please complete the survey, as we are going to look at the results at the end of the week. The more information we collect, the bigger the picture we can paint about energy at home.
2A Energy Survey
Since all the year 2 students participated in the Commonwealth Bank Start Smart program we all received amazing VR headsets!!
The Teleporter Adventures is an expansion of CommBank’s award winning financial educational program Start Smart, which over the last 8 years has serviced more than 2 million students right around Australia.
The storybook, Sammy the Space Koala (downloadable PDF), teaches children the difference between a ‘need’ and a ‘want’ through an epic space adventure. At 3 different points during the book, users will be asked to ‘Teleport’ into the story using ‘The Teleporter Adventures’ app and a virtual reality headset. The virtual reality setting can also be turned off to allow the app to be experienced as a full-screen interactive game.
We hope you enjoy your Teleporter Adventures!
