The Year Two Class Makes Shadow Puppets Using Symmetry

The Year Two Class had fun making shadow puppets using the principle of symmetry.  They took them to the stock room where it is quite dark and tried them out.  Their "monsters" made fierce-looking shadows.

The Year Two Children as Farmers? They answer "Yes!"

The Year Two children had to get the garden plot ready by removing the old plants and working up the soil. Then, when the soil was loosened up, the children planted sunflowers, hollyhocks, cornflowers, flox and snapdragons. They are experimenting with some of these seeds to see if they will grow in this climate. The children also planted sunflower seeds in a shady spot so they could see how the plants grow in comparison to the sunflower seeds planted in a sunny spot.

Gardening in Year Two

The Year Two Class added potatoes to their future crop.  They felt like professional farmers with their tools!
