6th class & 2nd class joined forces here in Bushypark NS to have our first 'Digital Buddies' Workshop!
Each 2nd class pupil was assigned a buddy from 6th class who worked with them during the various different stations. The 6th class pupils shared their valuable knowledge and iPad skills with their buddies and were fantastic mentors for the 2nd class pupils. For this session we worked with:
'Lego WeDo 2.0'
'See - Saw'
All of the pupils really enjoyed the session. Have a look at the photos to see what we got up to!

On Friday we did a soil investigation. We found worms, stones, roots, moss, twigs and leaves in the soil. We used magnifying glasses to get a closer look. We released the worms into the soil outside afterwards.
Here's some recent artwork that we have done. We created a flower using our hands to show that, like petals, 'we are each unique and beautiful, but together we are a masterpiece.' We also made autumn trees. We used cotton buds to create our leaves. We dabbed them into orange, red and yellow paint and onto our page.
We made delicious soup in school today. With the help of some parents we picked vegetables from the garden that we had sown last year. We added them to the vegetables we brought in from home to make our soup. We really enjoyed making it and it was really tasty.
