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.

Year 2 Teachers
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.
