Element of Colour

 As part of the warm welcome to our Grade 2 students, we started the week by introducing the third element of Visual Arts - colours.

The Grade 2s chose a black and white printed photo, traced it and gave life to it by choosing the right colours. The outcome is impressive.

Happy Holidays

 When it was the last day of school before winter break, guess who visited our school? The Grinch!













But of course, the Grinch couldn't stop Christmas. The day ended with Santa's coming, gift-giving and merry and joyous cheering!


HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

Simple Machines

 

This week, Grade 2s explored how forces make our lives easier. The learners connect force with work and found out that work happens when there is movement or change in location. Through this definition of work, the learners connect making work easier to machines, thus we explored different simple machines.

The class was divided into 6 groups and each group chose a simple machine to explore. They explained through their poster what that simple machines is, examples of where they are found and also created a simple model of it.

Our Amazing Gravity Game

 This week, the Grade 2s butterflies and bees spread their wings and explored their skills in making their original games that use force and gravity and movement. They worked in pairs and groups of three members to plan, design and create their games.

Teamwork was very evident in the process. They got the chance to see what other groups did, played the games that they did and provide feedback on their classmates' works.

Their reflection shows how much they enjoyed making this game.














Exploring Friction

 

Grade 2s did a simple experiment to find out which material can slide easily on the cardboard (less friction) - plastic, rubber, wax paper or foil.






The general finding was that the wooden block wrapped in rubber did not fall easily on the ramp. The block wrapped in plastic and foil slid easily.

Great findings, Grade 2s!

Good morning.

These mugs are now put on sale. If you wish to purchase the mug that your child designed, place your order here

Have a blessed week ahead.
