The Grade Two Activity Night

Tuesday 18th October was the Grade Two Activity Night at Leopold Primary School.

Excitement was high and everyone had a terrific time on the night!

The Activity Night started at 5pm and finished at about 9.15pm. Luckily, Wednesday is a holiday for the Geelong Cup (horse race) so we can all have a sleep in!

Watch this slideshow to see how our night unfolded…

Thanks to our special helpers Mr D, Mr Mac, Mrs Geoghegan, Mrs Mullen and Nate who helped out on the night!

Leo’s Birthday Party!

Thursday 7th April was Leo’s birthday and we had a party!

Leo is the 2KM and 2KJ class mascot. He is a very friendly, helpful and sleepy lion. You can read more about Leo here.

Leo turned eight years old and made his own invitations for all the boys and girls in 2KM and 2KJ.

Today is our last day of Term One.

It has been a very busy and exciting term. The students in 2KM and 2KJ have already learnt SO much!

Miss Jordan and Mrs Morris are looking forward to relaxing with their families and friends on the holidays. Miss Jordan is also looking forward to attending the Google Teacher Academy in Sydney. What an honour for her to be selected as one of the 50 teachers from around the world to attend.

2KM and 2KJ will be back at school on Wednesday 27th April which is Miss Jordan’s birthday!

How did you enjoy Leo’s party?

Our Healthy Tuesday!

This term, we have been learning how important it is to stay active and eat a balanced diet.

We have been having a healthy week so far with our Fruit and Veg Day, yoghurt making and the Cross Country fun run.


Today was the Leopold Primary School Cross Country. It was held on the oval and all the students from Prep to Grade Six were involved. The Grade Twos had to run a challenging course around the school grounds.

The boys ran first and then the girls. Everyone tried their very best!

There are some special efforts that need to be mentioned..

Liam (2KM) came third out of all the Grade Two boys.

Alana (2KM) came second out of all the Grade Two girls.

Millie (2KM) came third out of all the Grade Two girls.

Next year, when the students are in Grade Three, they will have the chance to go on to compete against students from other schools if they do well in the Cross Country.

Here are some photos of the Cross Country fun (tip: click on the picture to make it bigger)

Yoghurt is an excellent dairy food. Yoghurt is good for us because it contains

calcium for strong teeth and bones,

good bacteria to help our stomachs work properly,

protein to keep us feeling full and to make our muscles strong.

Mrs Morris makes her own yoghurt with an Easiyo Yoghurt maker so she brought it to school to show 2KM and 2KJ how to make yoghurt.

Mrs Morris enjoys making her own yoghurt because it is cheaper than buying yoghurt and has more good bacteria in it than store bought yoghurt.

2KM and 2KJ loved making and tasting some strawberry yoghurt.

It takes just three steps to make yoghurt.

1. Dissolve the yoghurt powder into a jar of water.

2. Add boiling water to the yoghurt maker.

3. Leave the yoghurt for 8 to 24 hours. Chill it and enjoy!

Multi-Age Day Fun

Today was Multi-Age Day (MAD) at Leopold Primary School.

Students in the school were divided into 24 groups with children of all ages interacting in each group. Groups rotated around different classrooms for the day.

The theme for MAD was science and all of the students enjoyed participating in fun scientific experiments and activities.

The science activities were:

* Floating and sinking

* Using microscopes and magnifying glasses

* Finding creatures

* Making forensic fingerprints

* Conducting a science survey

* Reading and responding to science books

Here’s some photos to show the fun we had!
