Term 2 has commenced.

We have started a very busy term 2, the weeks are flying by.  This term our World Around Us topic is Ancient Egypt.  We will be exploring all things Egyptian. 

In January we will also be finishing our Shared Education Program 'Linen'. 


Keep an eye on our page for all the photographs!






This half term we have had the pleasure of Mrs Jeanie Graham coming into our class every Friday.  These PDMU lessons have been great fun and very informative.  We have learnt a lot about the dangers of Alcohol, Drugs and Smoking. We have also learnt about peer pressure and the importance of keeping our bodies safe.

Meet our CLASS


Measuring and Comparing Length


Today we were exploring and reviewing measuring length.  We completed a brainstorm of all the knowledge we already know on measuring then we measured 4 objects, a frame, pencil lead, length of our playground and classroom.  We had to work in groups to decide which tool to use and then we had to measure. 

We then had to compare the units of measure and make sure we could convert between each.  It is important for us to remember there are 10mm in 1cm and 100cm in 1m.

Look at us working hard!


Sweetie Place Value


We have been learning about Place Value in Numbers.  We know all about Tens of Thousands, Thousands, Hundreds, Tens, Units and Tenths.

To make our learning fun and memorable we used midget gems.  We each lifted a handful of sweets and each colour represented a different value. 

We loved working out the value and the number we created with our sweets. 


Afterwards we loved eating the sweets!
