The Grade 2 students thoroughly enjoyed visiting Scienceworks as part of our inquiry unit ‘How do things move?’. Highlights were the two educational shows, “Toys and Forces” and “Blast Off’, where the students learnt all about force, motion and movement. We discovered new technologies in the Think Ahead exhibition and enjoyed exploring all the different sport activities in the Sportworks exhibition. Thank you to all the wonderful parent helpers who attended and helped to make our excursion to Scienceworks a wonderful experience!

On Friday the 12th of October the Grade 2 children had a fantastic day. We spent the day at Werribee Zoo. We went on a safari tour and learnt how to be a mini zookeeper. But wait there’s more…after Werribee we headed to Williamstown to have a chip and potato cake dinner, followed by a drink and a delicious apple. We had a great time on the beach and played cricket, footy and built sand castles. We got back to school at 7pm. It was such a fabulous day, we had so much fun!
