Term 3 Weeks 3&4

We looked at how much packaging was in our lunchboxes.

My lunch had barely any packaging. We called it a 'nude lunch'.

Some of us had lunch orders.

We talked about what items could be recycled, reused or reduced. We also discussed how we could reduce the amount of packaging used for our lunches. We decided that we could reuse plastic bags. We also thought that using a plastic container for our sandwiches and recess would help reduce packaging.

In religion, we imagined what ingredients God may have used to create love in us. We wrote recipes to reflect this.

We decided to find out how much rubbish our Year 2 class would create in one day. All our rubbish, including lunch scraps, were put into our classroom bin. We discovered that there was a lot of stuff that we could recycle. For example, plastic bags, paper lunch bags, aluminium foil and the drink can.

We recorded what we thought we could 'recycle, reuse or reduce'. We realised that our food scraps could go to chickens or into compost bins. Even our tissues and paper rubbish could go into a compost bin. It was very interesting.

We like how Mr L is helping Mr C.

On Friday, during Maths, we broke into groups to participate in our weekly Maths Challenge. It is fun and we all have to work together, quietly, to get the answer. Some people are really good at maths, but we all try very hard.

Sometimes the questions are a little hard and it takes a bit of time to work out. Other questions need us to listen really carefully so that we get all the information.


  1. Dear Year 2
    You certainly had a lot of rubbish in your classroom. We love the way you thought of ways you could use the rubbish.
