Sea Eagles Class - Term 2 2022
Well we are halfway through our first year as Sea Eagles and what a busy semester it has been! We started with The First Great Story which led to our work on the Periodic Table, volcanoes and the movement of air. This work included some science experiments which were great fun! We made a volcano erupt and we stopped the flow of water through a funnel using clay,
We explored all things French for Multicultural Day which was one of our most favourite days. During our research on France we discovered Georges Braque, an early 1900’s pioneer of Cubism and his art work intrigued us. We produced our own Cubism works of art that were displayed on the day. We also completed research projects on various aspects of French Culture. The most popular part of our French exploration was the macaroons!
We continued to explore our artistic sides with the study of colour: primary and secondary, wash, tone and tint. We produced colour wheels and a monochromatic painting to show our learning. We finished the study by designing and painting our own designs onto a small square of canvas.
We managed to do that all while keeping on top of our spelling, grammar, word studies, sentence analysis, focused writing, handwriting, math operations, mental math, measurement, memorization of number facts, practical life work, reading and making and maintaining friendships.

Welcome to the new Sea Eagles class web page and the first news that we are sharing about our class. We hope you enjoy it.
Sea Eagles practice Random Acts of Kindness
We have been practicing random acts of kindness as February 17th was Random Acts of Kindness Day. Our students enjoyed doing kind and lovely things for people. They students also learned that Random Acts of Kindness day was started by Will Glennon in Denver in 1995, and then spread to New Zealand in 2004. Suggested ways to demonstrate acts of kindness are:
- Give a big hug
- Write a letter to someone
- Make a meal for someone
- Visit your grandparents
- Say something nice to someone.
The Sea Eagles wrote letters to our classmates as an example of a random act of kindness.

Sea Eagles do Research
For Multicultural Day, the Sea Eagles also did some research on St. Patrick, and this was what they found:
Once every year at the 17th of March in the Republic of Ireland they celebrate St Patrick’s Day. On St Patrick’s Day everyone gets to go to a parade
Everybody also wear green (national colors of Ireland). The first St Patrick’s day was in 1979 in Dublin. We have St Patrick’s Day because the day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. St Patrick’s Day often starts with a march and somebody saying la fheille pardaig sona duit which means happy Saint Patrick’s Day in Irish. On St Patrick’s Day they eat corned beef, cabbage and Irish pie.
Saint Patrick was born in England.
The Irish Were Once Scorned in America.
Corned beef was an American invention.
St Patrick arrived to Ireland as a slave.
St Patrick’s Day was not celebrated in 1941.
St Patrick travelled around Europe.
St Patrick died at the age of 120.
