This term in Religious Education, we have been wondering at the beauty and variety in Creation.
As a class we had a discussion about the different types of nature, what makes it beautiful, how it is different from man made things, and who we thought created nature.
To celebrate this learning about nature, we decided to go on a nature walk through our lovely bush area, and collect fallen items that we thought were beautiful and unique. We discussed the variety and beauty of these items as a class and we looked at some things we could create with them. We decided to create Nature Bugs, which we will showcase to you on the upcoming Open Night!
Here are some photos of us on our walk and describing our nature to the class:
Attached is our Year Two Parent Booklet.
This week in our Guided Inquiry Unit – Creativity, we learnt about the one of the Habits of Mind called – STRIVING FOR ACCURACY.
One of the activities to enhance this skill involved drawing a picture of a vase of flowers as accurately as possible. After looking carefully and translating our observations as accurately as possible, we used water colours to produce our final product.

In week five, Mr Davis organised for the Life Education van to visit us at St Emilie’s.
Each class got the opportunity to meet Healthy Harold, the very friendly giraffe. In our incursion, we learnt about healthy eating and what we should look for in a balanced diet. In groups, we created our own healthy lunch boxes to see if we were able to include all of the food groups.
Today when we were working on “How Jesus Loves Children” in Religious Education, year two was given the option to take off their shoes. Those of us who chose to work shoeless described it as feeling “free,” “relaxing” and “comfortable.”
