This week the year 1/2 students have been learning about AREA: the space inside a 2D shape.
They created their own robots on grid paper, then counted the number of coloured-in squares to work out their robot’s area.
The fun continued with a ‘hands on’ activity where the students used MAB or Unifix blocks to measure, record and compare the area of different items they found in their tubs.
Well done, kids! What motivated mathematicians you are!Read More »

We have started learning about Cyber Safety and how to stay safe online.
The students in 1/2S log in to the site and work their way through the circus to learn about the most important things about being safe online.
So far we have learnt to TELL SOMEONE when we see something worrying on the internet and we have also learnt to HIDE OUR PASSWORDS and only share them with adults that we trust.
We will continue to work our way through the site and hopefully this will support the students when they are on the internet.Read More »
