Our Term 2 Inquiry Unit is ‘Life in a Pond’. We are preparing for our excursion to the LaTrobe Wildlife Sancutuary, and thinking about what we already know about life in a pond. Over the school holidays I spent some time at Lorne and went to Erskine Falls. There was lots of pond life! Here are some photos of the pond life I saw.
What can you see? Look closely…

Today students in 2MG taught a partner a skill that they are good at, and in return learnt something from their partner.
We also needed to think about how we would present to our partner and reflect on whether we were prepared, spoke clearly and had a good understanding about our skill.
Have a look at some of the new skills we’ve learnt. Can you guess what some of them are?

We have started to discuss what we know about subtraction.
We already know it means taking away, counting back and starting with a big number, leaving us with a smaller number.
We have been telling stories that show subtraction. Have a look!
Can you make your own subtraction story?

Hi Preps! As promised here are some photos of our new puppy Louie. Yesterday we took him to puppy preschool. He is learning so fast! He can already sit, shake, drop and come. He still needs lots of practise though! I’m having so much fun being with him, sometimes he can be a bit naughty and bite but I just ignore him. He cried a lot his first night but now he loves his kennel! ‘Casa di Louie’ means Louie’s house. I painted the plaque and he even let me put his footprints on it too! I just love him so much!
If you have any tips or advice, let me know. Remember, I’ve never had a puppy before!
