As we wrap up Term 4 I would like to take this opportunity to thank the parents from Room 15 for all of their support and cooperation throughout the year. It has been an absolute honour teaching the Year Twos and getting to know each and every one of them. It’s rare to work with such motivated and kind students and I am truly thankful for such a wonderful year. Thank you to the Year Twos and their parents, I wish you all the very best for next year and beyond.

As we start to dismantle the classroom for the end of the year it’s wonderful to see all of the hard work the Year Two students have put into their own classroom displays. Room 15 have particularly enjoyed creating the Word Wall/ Window. Students have added to the Word Window daily, even going home and looking up as many as 30 words to bring in the next day! Not only have the students created the Word Window themselves, they’ve also consistently used these words in their writing and in general conversation. One student even informed me that my desk was ‘atrociously messy’. As we try to remove all of our displays students are still coming to me every single day with more words to add!

The lovely change in weather has allowed Room 15 to get out and garden recently. The students have been working hard to ensure our vegetable patches are weeded and well watered. If anyone is interested in taking home a lettuce or some parsley, please let us know!

Design and Technology
As part of Design and Technology this term, students in Room 15 were given the Plastic Cup Challenge! Their goal was to design a structure which held their plastic cup at least 5cm off of the ground using limited resources. It was great to see the students persist and challenge themselves with this activity and as you can see, it’s not always as difficult as it may seem!
Our science lessons on push pull forces have been a real hit this term! Last week we investigated the impact of gravity and how forces change the shape of objects. After making our predictions we dropped playdough from various heights and then documented the result of the impact.
