Year 2B learnt some very important and interesting information from Mr Newman!
Mr Newman is a physiotherapist and gave us some helpful tips on how to take care of our backs.
We had a look at a model of a spine so we could see the importance of ‘sitting up tall’. When we slouch, our spine is bent and we will start getting aches and pains.
We also learnt about how to wear and pack our back-packs correctly. Here are some important tips to remember…
*Pull the straps tight and wear your back-pack high on your back (you shouldn’t feel like you’re going to fall backwards!)
*Pack the heaviest things closest to your back (by using the dividers in your back-pack)
*Don’t make your bag too heavy (you shouldn’t try to carry more that 10% of your body weight)
Luckily our school back-packs allow us to do all of these things!
Here is some more information about ‘Protecting Young Backs’.
We hope Mr Newman will be able to visit us again to share some more helpful tips!

In Literacy, Year 2B have been learning about how to write a PROCEDURE.
We combined this learning with a bit of fun this week by following the procedure for making Silly Putty!
We found that some of us needed to add a little bit more cornflour or a little bit more dish soap. We loved getting our hands dirty and were so proud when we got our balance of ingredients just right to make lovely, soft putty!
Here is the procedure we followed, in case you feel like some experimenting at home!

After waiting almost 14 weeks, the Year 2’s were finally able to harvest their potatoes! Friday of Week 3
Much excitement was had in the Vege Patch as we dug through the soil and found our little purple pieces of treasure!
There were squeals of delight as each new potato was discovered and potato sizes were compared.
After the potatoes were picked everyone was eager to taste them!
On Wednesday of Week 4 the Year 2’s prepared the potatoes – they were washed, wrapped in foil and baked in the oven.
Toppings such as bacon, cheese, sour cream, capsicum, tomato and even sausage were added, and then it was time to taste!
It was an unanimous “MMMMMMM” as we ate our school-grown, perfect potatoes!
We had so much fun learning about the important process of growing, preparing and eating our own food.
We now know there is so much involved in getting our food from ‘paddock to plate’ and we look forward to sharing this knowledge with our friends and family.
We would like to say BIG THANK YOU to Mr & Mrs Cogger for all their help!
Our potato plants have sprouted!!!
Have a look at the photos below…
Special thanks to our 2 reporters – Ruby and Jesse!
