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.

Ciao Italy Incursion!

Today Emilio from ‘Ciao Italy’ came to visit us!

Throughout the session we got to hear the story of Emilio’s Dad moving to Australia by ship during WW2.  Emilio showed some traditional Italian items, such as a pasta making machine, cafeteria (coffee machine) and the pasta sauce machine; these are just a few!

Once we had learnt about the traditional items, we had an opportunity to do some traditional dancing such as the Tarantella.  Visit our twitter to see us dancing!

Discuss with your family:

  • What was your favourite part of today?
  • What are some of the words you learnt today?
  • Can you teach someone the dances?
  • Does your family have any traditional items?

Happy end to Term 1

What a fun end to Term 1! Today the year 2 students treated Clare to a mock wedding just to get her ready for her big day coming up on the holidays. She happily married ‘Ian’ and sealed it with a high-5. There was a lovely reception to follow and we all toasted the happy couple with a lovely cup of cordial. Everyone had so much fun!
I’m sure you will all join us in wishing Clare and Ian all the best for their big day!

We wish everyone a safe and happy Easter and look forward to seeing you all after the holidays!
