This week in Primary, students in Years 3 to 6 had a Maths Competition. In mixed groups, they had to answers a series of questions within a certain amount of time by helping each other; the winning group will be rewarded with a small prize once back from the holidays.
Meanwhile, in the Year 2 classroom, as part of their Science topic Rocks and Minerals, the children learnt about volcanoes. They studied the after effects of a volcanic eruption and what happens inside the Earth to enable the volcano to erupt. They also learnt the terms ' extinct, dormant and active', and located on a world map where some famous volcanoes exist. Year 2's homework task was to make a volcano from card in order for it to be used to make their own volcanic eruptions. The standard of homework was very high, and we received a wonderful selection of amazing volcanoes; using baking powder, vinegar, food dye and liquid soap students recreated eruptions and had a lot of fun, as you can see from the photos!
