Fairy Tale Celebration

To celebrate our learning about fairy tales and fractured fairy tales this term, Stage 2 watched Ella Enchanted. They also had to bring a prop or element of fairy tale costume. It was lots of fun!

Marble Run Fun!

On Wednesday Stage 2 had a day to make the marble runs they have been designing to show their knowledge and understanding of the forces of push, pull, gravity and friction. It was lots of fun, very messy and challenging at times. Year 3 students worked well together to overcome obstacles and to modify and refine their designs ass they went. The final products were very impressive. 
An excellent day of learning!
