Yesterday evening was the annual Coburg North Primary School Twilight Sports. There were many different races including a class race, a sack race, an egg and spoon race, a challenge for parents and a target practice competition. Everyone had a great time dressing up in their house colours and participating in the different events. Well done to Blue team for winning overall.
On Tuesday, all the students in Grade 2 got to have a basketball clinic. Mike from the Coburg Giants came to school and taught us some different passes and new games. We also learnt about the different areas of a basketball court, such as the baseline, sidelines and the centre circle, and where they were on the court.
Last Friday, Camp Quality Puppets came to C.N.P.S and put on an insightful puppet show for students and teachers.
The show helped students learn about the challenges of children living with cancer and how to be a supportive friend or classmate. It was also jam packed full of laughter, optimistic and some funny jokes from the puppets Dean and Kylie.
It was also Crazy Hair Day, and there were certainly a lot of interesting hairstyles from teachers and students! Our Crazy Hair Day raised funds for Camp Quality. It was great to see everyone getting involved.
Over the past few weeks, students in Grade 2 have been learning about procedural texts. We have spent some time in class identifying and learning about the different features and structures, and restructuring procedural texts into the correct format.
To develop further understanding of procedural texts and their structure, we made some yummy pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. Students were very helpful during the session, as they informed teachers of what was needed to make the recipes (our ingredients and utensils), the quantities required, and the steps involved in the method. Students seemed to thoroughly enjoy this session – especially as they were able to help add the ingredients into the bowl and mix the pancake batter.
The best part was at the end of the session when we got to choose our own toppings and eat the pancakes that we made!
Thank you Samira for taking these photos of us making our pancakes:
