We have had an exciting start to winter Term with the Year Two boys collaborating with PLC on their latest unit of Inquiry - "How We Organise Ourselves."

The boys and girls have been connecting via a joint Edmodo page and have shared excursions together. The first of which was an outing to Claremont Quarter on 7 August to meet our PLC buddies and further explore our Central Idea, 'Public spaces provide people with opportunities to make connections and establish a sense of community'.

Year 2 boys adventured around Lake Claremont on 12 August mapping our local shared space as part of our Maths and Inquiry. It didn't take us long to spot the Triceratops in the tree!

On the 18 August we went to Kings Park for an excursion to explore features of Perth's iconic landmark with our PLC friends. A highlight of the day was the DNA Tower and lunch at Synergy Parklands.

Week 5 was a blast with the Junior School Athletics Carnival, where all of our friends achieved personal bests! A big thanks to Mr Whiston and Mrs Clancy for an amazing day!

The fun continued with a trip to PLC on Thursday with the opportunity for a final collaboration with our groups to plan and map an (imaginary) inner city space for use by the extended Scotch PLC Community.

The week finished on a high with the Book Week Parade, which celebrates its 70th Anniversary this year. The staff pantomime, an adaptation of "Wombat Stew," had the boys rolling with laughter. Book Week concluded with an excursion to Claremont Quarter to see Mr Jim and Drippy Dragon. A wonderful time was had by all the Year 2 boys!
