Year Two Science Experiment

The Year Two Class is conducting an on-going science experiment involving "capillary attraction," the force which causes water and nutrients to rise up from the roots of a plant to the rest of the plant.  As Mrs Newman's white roses come in, each child will get to participate.  Finley and Sam made blue roses.  Charlie made a green rose.

Years 1 and 2 Study the Myth of Persephone

Years one and two studied the changing of the seasons with Mrs Newman.  They heard the myth of Persephone and the Pomegranate.  The children went on a walk-about on the compound.  They picked pomegranates and removed some of the seeds to take home.  Later they each drew Persephone, outlined their drawings in gold and painted metallic green leaves on her head.
