Shadow Puppets

Today a reading group got to read a book called "Shadow Puppets" by Jenny Feely. While they were reading with Mrs Edwards the rest of the class started listening and became very interested in the text. No one was concentrating on their tasks, they were all listening to the group reading the book. So Mrs Edwards got everyone to pack up and the whole class read the book. Then she put out the same equipment from the story and let the class loose! Everyone got stuck in and used their creativity to make their very own shadow puppets.
Check back in soon, we want to make plays with our puppets.

Spring Fling

Today was the junior schools spring fling. We have been practising all of our dances and today was our chance to perform for our parents and school mates.
Unfortunately the weather was not too great but we had fun regardless.

Toys our parents played with

This week our parents had homework, they had to tell us what toys they played with when they were our age. Arthur's parents bought in some photos of the toys they had.

Today we had to put on our Green and white thinkers hat and had to write what we think our parents played with when they were our age. Some of us knew a little bit already but we had to be creative with our ideas.

Art with Mrs Shepherd

In term 3 we got to go to art for a whole day with Mrs Shepherd. We had been learning about shapes in our classroom and got to apply what we already knew to create a piece of artwork. Check out what we made, we are really proud of what we have achieved.
