TERM two may have started off completely different to normal, but the weeks have flown by again for Leeton's students and teachers.
As the school holidays get underway this weekend, Leeton Public School has reflected on what was a topsy-turvy second quarter of the year.
"Leeton Public was proud of the efforts of their staff, students and families, for coming together as a team and being so resilient and willing to engage in learning from home," acting principal Rachel Thomason said.
"When school recommenced the most important focus was be to get students settled back into school, re-acquainted with their friends, peers and teachers and to re-establish a love of learning in all areas of the curriculum."
Once that was achieved, the students and staff got stuck into several initiatives throughout the term.
This included taking part in National Simultaneous Storytime in a virtual manner with other students from across Australia and New Zealand.
Students also acknowledged Reconciliation Week across the school through artistic design, reading dreamtime stories and cooking damper in their new school kitchen.
In the classroom, stage one have been focusing on explanation texts.
Students viewed a digital text about the water cycle and then drew and labelled their own.
They also read Apollo, creating a food chain diagram.
"Primary also had fun measuring small areas in the classroom using square centimetres and larger areas in the playground using square metres," Mrs Thomason said.
Stage three have been using pattern blocks to build assorted shapes and the angles that make them.
The school also made sure to mark Refugee Week as a whole.
"At LPS we have been lucky enough to have some of our students be a part of this celebration and with their friends created some art works," Mrs Thomason said.
It has also been a busy time for science classes learning about everything from the classification of living things to "living and non-living things".
Early in June, stage three classes learned about space and astrophysics in the Aurora College Masterclass with Brad Tukken.
This was completed online, with students saying they enjoyed learning all about the solar system, calling the lessons "invigorating".
For now, the first half of the year is done and students can look forward to a two-week break while they enjoy the school holidays.
