Happy Halloween!

Class 20 has been asking to write about Halloween for the past few days.  They were able to contribute some amazing ideas and have created some great stories unsupported!

I like dressing up as a skeleton because it is fun and because you can scare everyone.

My funny classmate

I like my classmate because he is always there for me.  But some  times we  moan at each other and some times we do not moan at each other.

I like my cousin because she is so wonderful. She is kind and she is so beautiful and looks after me. She lets me play on her bike and that is why she is wonderful.

Creating River Scenes

As part of our immersion week for Art Attack,this week Class 20 have created River Scenes using crayon and dye.  Our finished masterpieces are on display in our classroom and corridor.  It was great to see the attention to detail that the learners displayed with both the crayon and dye, although it was definitely using the dye that was the highlight!

Check out the learners as they worked their artistic magic in this short video and don't forget to view the finished masterpieces in our classroom.

The river

I liked the tablet on Mr Burt's tummy.  - Francis

At the assembly the artist was painting a picture.  - Deborah

Football Frenzy

Class 20 and Class 24 are joining together for Football every Tuesday after lunch.  At our first session today, we met our instructor, Ben!

Both classes really enjoyed a game of traffic lights as our warm up.   This game extended, with the use of soccer balls - it was great to practice our ball control.  Our last game, had Class 20 and Class 24 protecting their balls, using only their feet, while Ben, Mrs Moala and Mrs Belt tried to get them off us!

We are all looking forward to our next session with Ben next Tuesday!
