Polly Woodside Excursion

What a fantastic day!

On Wednesday 1st May, 2M went on an excursion with 2AL to Polly Woodside.

We have been learning about transport and how it has changed overtime.

Polly Woodside is an old ship that used to transport cargo. On the excursion, we got to see what life was like as a crew member on the ship. The conditions were very tough.

We learnt how hard it was to steer the ship using the steering wheel as it was very heavy and was at the back of the ship so to steer the ship you had to listen to instructions.

There was a lot of maintenance  to do on the ship. Sweeping the decks needed to be done regularly and was a very hard job. It was exhausting! Especially with other crew members yelling!

We saw how the crew slept and learnt that it is best to get a top bunk so you do not get wet from the waves when you are sleeping.

We have such a good understanding of ships and what life was like working on a ship after the excursion. It was great fun!

STEM Floating Boats

Our class was very excited today as we have started our STEM rotations for the On the Move inquiry unit. Over the next 5 weeks, we will be rotating around to all the grade 2 teachers and doing a STEM activity.

Today we made floating boats. Our boat had to float in water and be able to carry at least one marble.

The only materials we had to make our boat was a piece of aluminium foil and some masking tape.

We had to design our boat, deciding how to best use the foil and what shape and size our boat was going to be. It was very tricky. In the end we had so many different boats!

It was a lot of trial and error to make the most successful boat.

We had lots of fun today!

Wilson Botanic Park

On Thursday 21st February, 2M went with 2K to Wilson Botanic Park. In the classroom, we have been learning about ‘My Place’ and focusing on our Berwick community,

We walked around the park and visited the Hoo Hoo Tower, which was very exciting. After, we went to the playground and walked around Anniversary Lake.

There was alot of walking, but it was great to see one of the special places in Berwick.

Thank you to all the families who met us there and had lunch with us.
