Intensive Swimming Lessons

Well, the first week of our intensive Swim School lessons have gone...swimmingly! Everyone has learnt a lot and had a lot of fun while doing it!

It has been great to see the Ruru Class continue their fabulous "give it a go" attitude. Although it has been a tiring week, we all agreed we are all looking forward to getting back in the water next week!

The Best Mathematicians in the World!

The Ruru Class have been trying SUPER HARD in Maths time! I have been absolutely amazed at how fast and brilliant their minds are!

They are learning to add REALLY big numbers and are sometimes faster than I am!

They are very proud of themselves...just look at these smart cookies!

Dad's Day

Last Friday we celebrated some of the fantastic people we have in our lives.

It was really great to see the dads, grandads, and family members here to see what we do at school and to join in the fun.

Thank you to all our visitors, we had a fantastic day and we hope that you enjoyed your day at Wentworth Primary!

Our Science topic this term is Light and Dark and we have been looking at what causes Shadows.

We have already learned that a shadow is made when something blocks the light.

We had fun drawing around toy animals...

...and seeing the best way to make them stand so we got interesting shadows.

We found them pretty hard to draw around.

  And it was really hard to keep our bodies out of the light as we drew.

 It was such a nice way to spend a Science lesson!

Welcome to the Ruru Class Blog for 2019!

Hello, thanks for visiting our 2019 class blog!

We have voted to be the Year Two Ruru Class this year. The New Zealand Ruru, or Morepork are are named for their distinctive call. In Maori legend Ruru are known as watchful guardians of the forest. Ruru/Morepork birds are beautiful (just like our Year 2s) and known for their fantastic listening abilities (fingers crossed!)

Thanks again for visiting!
 We will be updating the blog regularly so make sure you come and look at all the fantastic things we are doing and making and learning in class this year.

Science - Learning about Electricity

We have been learning about making and breaking electrical circuits. We have had fun making a bulb light up by completing a circuit.

We have also learnt about breaking a circuit and adding a switch.

Data Handling

We have had a very busy start to Term 3!
In Maths, we have been learning about Data Handling.

Here are some photos of us collecting data, sorting it, and displaying our findings in a way that is easy for other people to understand.
