Chinese Dining Day

8GMc just got back from their Chinese Dining Day. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and behaved pretty well. I know at my table the students ate most things put in front of them, although there were a few chicken feet left. Best quote of the day came when the chicken feet came out, 'Mr McKay, they look so realistic'. A great bonding experience with the class.

Some completed work from Art and Pottery. These are the results of nearly two terms of hard work. You can see how proud they are, and they should be. These look amazing!!!

More Grease

8GMc were hard at work in the technology room today making products to sell at the upcoming Market Day. They will be selling their products to keen year 5/6/7 pupils who will each get $25 Southwell money to spend. Some products are coming along nicely - others will hopefully get there in the end. Stay tuned as we are currently looking into advertising and I will be sharing their adverts/posters as they are completed.

8GMc Drama

In drama 8GMc are working on their Grease production. In the video below you will see what they are up to and possibly be presently surprised by the amount of co-ordination by the majority of the class. Can't wait to see the finished product at the end of the term!!!

da Vinci Mechanics Museum Trip

On Tuesday we headed off to the Hamilton Museum to explore the da Vinci Mechanics exhibition to set us up for our innovation topic this term. We saw some amazing inventions and art and found out that da Vinci was one brilliant person. It makes you wonder if he was alive now what he could come up with.

Cha Cha Slide

Over the next couple of weeks we are looking at 'Happiness'. To start off with the whole class learnt a new dance called the 'Cha Cha Slide' without knowing why. Judging by the looks on most of the students faces I think it is safe to say that dancing makes us happy! (and we may also need to work on our left and rights)
