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!
This term we have been curious about making different effects with paint. We tried blowing it, spinning it, pouring it and scraping it.
The art works below are made using a salad spinner. We made predictions about what would happen when we put the ink in the spinner and then gave it a spin. We think the effects are amazing.
When we finished spinning our work we used markers to draw contour lines around the shapes that the spinner had made. The ink made swirling shapes and patterns and even mixed together to make new colours. We hope you enjoy our work.
The results have come in and the hard work we’ve all been putting in has paid off. We have officially finished in the TOP 10 nationally for Word Mania. Classroom teachers will be handing out certificates to all students by the end of the week so make sure you celebrate our efforts. We are super proud of our amazing achievements!

Over the next two weeks our students will be participating in the Maths Superhero Challenge created by Manga High. Students can earn points for our school by completing any activities whether it may be, Games or Prodigi tasks. Students who demonstrate mastery earn medallions and each medal is worth a certain number of points.
We are encouraging students to complete activities and games over the next two weeks, to not only work towards participating in the challenge, but to built upon their maths knowledge.
We look forward to seeing what we can do over the next two weeks.
Best of luck to all who are participating.
As you know the last few weeks the year 2 students have been participating in the 2017 Word Mania competition. In round 1, we were so amazed with our result, we finished the competition 1st on the leaderboard out of 4000 year 2 classes in the entire country!
In round 2, we finished 3rd nationally as well. However, in our region we have been ranking first throughout the entire competition. We are extremely proud of the efforts all our students have made throughout the competition and have noticed massive improvements in our writing.
Since we have been on an amazing streak while playing Word Mania, we had a special visitor from Literacy Planet and she gave us a special prize pack for all of our incredible efforts!
We are currently playing in the final round and it finishes at midnight tonight so all of us are encouraging our students to keep playing and making some incredible words.
Challenge: How many words can you make using these letters? What is the longest word you can make? What word can you make that will have the most points?
Comment all your words below, we cannot wait to see what you can all make!
