Bean there, grew that!

Bean there, grew that!

The Grade 2’s planted their beans two weeks ago, exposing them to different conditions. They have been caring for them, and watching them very closely since then, monitoring every bit of their growth. The beans were planted into soil and sand, to determine which one they would grow best in. The results have shocked even the teachers!  Can you guess which[Read More…]

Not so 2-Dimensional after all!

Not so 2-Dimensional after all!

This week the Grade 2s have thought, hypothesised, experimented, and concluded that there is more to Maths and Science than sums and beakers. With giant bubbles and balloon shapes, the Bubbly Maths company came to shed new light on a few dull Mathematical concepts.

MAD Grade 2 SCIENTISTS

The kids were fascinated by the different colours of the “toothpaste”. We then invited the Grade 1s and 3s into our “labratories” to show off our experiments. The beauty of[Read More…]
