Dear Parents/Guardians,

Just a few reminders for our extended excursion tomorrow.

We intend to go outside for star gazing, this means students will require warm clothing to wear on top of their school uniform such as:

  • a coat/jacket
  • beanie
  • scarf
  • gloves

Students are to bring to school:

  • Backpack
    • with brain food, lunch and snacks
    • drink bottle
  • An additional bag
    • pyjamas
    • slippers

Looking forward to a great day of investigating Earth and Beyond!

DISCOVERY LEARNING!

The Year Twos always look forward to Discovery Learning. It is a time where they can design, build, make, create, research, problem solve, collaborate and so much more!

With our inquiry topic being ‘Earth and Beyond’  they have been very interested in the planets and the world around us!

Check out some of the things we have been creating below!

 

We are also looking for donations of wool, cardboard boxes and old electronics that can be used in Discovery Learning. Please make sure these items are clean and safe for use (e.g. no glass in the electronics and no egg cartons). If you have anything to donate, please send the items to your child’s homegroup teacher.

What is your favourite Discovery station to work in? Why?

What skills do you practise while working in that station?

What new station would you like to see in Discovery?

SAVE THE DATE! Term 3 Excursion

SAVE THE DATE!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As part of our learning for Term 3, the Year Two Team have organised an extended excursion for Tuesday the 23rd of July. During the day, the students will be immersed in activities related to our Inquiry unit ‘Earth and Beyond’. 

The students will travel to Scienceworks to participate in a program called Tycho to the Moon. Upon their return to school at approximately 3.45pm the students will be involved in discussions on their learning and participate in some fun activities. 

We will also be providing the students with dinner. After dinner we will be visited by the Mornington Peninsula Astronomical Society where the children will be able to star gaze, see a real piece of the Moon and a part of a meteorite. 

On conclusion of the Excursion/Incursion, students will change into their pyjamas and be collected at 8.30pm all ready for bed!

Permission slips and further information will be sent home at the start of Term 3.

Thank you for your continued support,

Year Two Team

Winter Reminders!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As the cold and wet weather settles in at SMCM, we have some Winter reminders:

  • We recommend that students wear scarves, beanies, coats and gumboots outside during break times as it is cold, wet and windy
  • We ask for boxes of tissues as we tend to get lots of runny noses at this time of year

Your support is greatly appreciated.
