Materials

In Science, Year 2 have been learning about different materials and what they can be used for. The students then researched manufactured products specifically made for pets and identified their strengths and limitations. Show your family the Fish Tank product Google Doc in your Science folder in your Drive.

Take a look at the game below to learn more about different materials.

The Royal Botanic Garden

On Tuesday 31st October, Year 2 visited the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney.

During the excursion, the students were able to explore the Botanic Garden and learn about minibeasts and much more! The day included:

  • a walk through the garden – noticing lots of different animals, trees and flowers
  • digging in soil to find minibeasts
  • holding worms
  • swishing nets in water to find living things
  • looking at specimens through a microscope
  • looking at silk worms and moths
  • looking at stick insects
  • playing a game on an iPad
  • sketching minibeasts
  • walking through the Calyx to view the beautiful pollination display.

Everyone had such a great time, including the teachers and the parents!

Thank you to our lovely parent helpers who helped us on the day!

Kindness!

Last term, Year 2 learnt about reflecting God’s goodness in the world. We can reflect God’s goodness in many ways. One way is through random acts of kindness.

We watched the video below in class and were inspired to complete a kind act ourselves.

Year 2 were Secret Kindness Ninjas! We quietly crept up to the library to hide kind notes inside books. We also cleaned classrooms for other grades and wrote kind notes to leave on teacher’s cars.

The St Felix Art Show!

At the end of last term, St Felix held a fantastic art show! Each student created a beautiful piece of art that was displayed in the hall. Each class also created a class artwork which families could buy.

Every student at St Felix was an artist and the artworks looked spectacular when they were displayed on the walls. Everyone should be very proud of themselves.

Take a look at the photos below.

Library Visit

This year, the book week theme was ‘Escape to Everywhere’. Books are amazing for many reasons, however, one reason that they are especially amazing is that great books can make you forget about the real world and make you fall into the story you are reading.

Year 2 visited Bankstown Library a few weeks ago. The librarians read a few books and acted out ‘Chips’. Year 2 also entered a guessing competition, answered questions and read books. Everyone had a lovely time.

Take a look at the photos below.
