Monday morning Boat Building

Float or Sink??

The challenge:
With your partner create a boat which will float on water for more than ten seconds. Test your boat in the basins of water in the room. How many marbles can your boat carry?! Record your labelled diagram, prediction and test result using paper and clipboards. Don’t forget to give your boat a name.

The materials:

  • 10 icy pole sticks
  • Masking tape
  • Old magazines and scrap paper
  • Ribbon
  • 5 Matches
  • Small piece of blue-tack
  • Cellophane

We had some amazing entries in our Build a Boat Challenge! Some students had time to test their boats and then improve their design to carry even more marbles. We heard great teamwork and problem solving language during this task. The winning boat carried an amazing 25 marbles! Well done Angus and Oliver.

We made foldables in the library with Margaret!

How to make a foldable

  1.   Choose a character (Cat, Fish or Peggy)
  2.   Fold your paper so it has 4 triangular flaps
  3.  Write Qs on your four flaps
  4.   Illustrate/write answers to the four Qs.

WHO is the character?

WHERE did it happen?

WHAT did the character do?

THOUGHT…. (What did your character think?)

I did a foldable of Fish. Fish was thinking, ” I like cat.” I used pink card to make my foldable. Taylor

I made a foldable of Fish too! Fish was playing with his friend Cat. I drew a picture under the “what” flap. Josh

Genius Hour in 1-2 E

Today we went to Mass. We sang and read beautifully and were really proud.

Then we had Genius Hour and we got to do some creating and inventing!

We could make a story on Storybird. We could do some Art. We could play with fabric. We could build with lego. We could make with paper.

Edel taught some of us to weave with pieces of hessian. We poked holes in the hessian with scissors and then we pulled (or weaved) long strips of fabric through and made a pattern or picture. We got to do a practice piece first and then we got a larger piece of hessian to do a “good copy”. It was fun and we are not finished yet!

Nate built a piranha and a ship using Lego. Dash and Callum and Claudia also helped.

Matthieu and Max made flying pigs.

Grace made a story called “The Hoolie Pup” on Storybird.

James worked on his “Australian Discovery” project.

Kyla, Tabitha, Holly, Claudia, Emma, Lily, Madeleine and Kate all joined in the weaving workshop and created some beautiful fabric pictures.

Thank you for reading our post.

What did you create?

What do you think you can create next time?

Grade 2 Girls Rule – new blog link!

Dear students,

In the past few weeks a group of girls have been very busy in the Multi-Purpose room.  They have been studying recipes, making Powerpoints, planning a cookery demonstration, creating pizza, making videos and now starting a blog!

http://grade2girlsrule.global2.vic.edu.au/

This is now a place for all Grade 2 Girls to publish posts and pieces of writing they have worked hard on. Remember anyone can visit the blog and comment on a post (you don’t have to be a girl and you can be in any grade). Parents are also very much encouraged to comment as part of our authentic audience!

Congratulations and Best of Luck!

Edel

Creative Character Descriptions

Hi 1-2 E,

Some children at St. Luke’s Primary school in Blackburn have posted character descriptions on their blog. They were inspired by Roald Dahl. Please visit them by clicking on the link below. You may get some good ideas and I’m sure they’d love some positive feedback!

Storybird

On Friday morning Grade 2 Students from 1-2 E and 1-2 L looked at the Storybird website together. We have our own accounts and will begin to write our own stories soon. This is a link to the short story we wrote together http://storybird.com/books/journey-to-the-moon-5/ . It was great fun!

When you log onto Storybird you can read stories others have created and make your own. We  thought the illustrations were the best part!

This is a new and exciting way of publishing our writing and sharing it with a global audience. As part of the writing process, remember to plan and edit your work as you go. When Grade 2 students have had a chance to experiment with Storybird and discover its features, they will help Grade One children who are interested.

Enjoy!!
