ANZAC Day!


This week Room 13 learnt all about ANZAC day. We read a story called "Dawn Parade" to help us understand what it is about. We made poppies out of paper too.



Our poem this week was called "ANZAC Day Poem". Have a read below. 

April 25th a long time ago,
You went to battle at dawn, 
Many lost their lives that day, 
Together we will mourn.
More than that though, 
We will march and remember those brave men, 
For they went to war and battled on,
They fought for our freedom then. 
Through the darkest nights and the longest days,
Through muddy grounds you go, 
You marched on and looked behind, 
And you saw the poppies grow. 
We will wear one on this day, 
To remember your courage so strong, 
We want you to know that in our hearts,
Your memory still lives on.

Self Portraits

Room 13 have worked hard on our self portraits this term. We first of all had to sketch the other half of our face. This was a bit tricky! We had to learn about symmetry and had to make sure our faces looked the same. We tried very hard. Next we had to create a pattern for a border using pastels. Have a look at our efforts below.

Fun with Circuits!

This week it was Room 13's time to have the circuits! We had fun exploring and discovering new things. We enjoyed working with our friends to make up different circuits. Could you make a light turn on? Or could you make a fan go?

A Pirate's Picnic!

Room 13 read a great poem about a pirate's picnic! They ate some disgusting things like alligator stew, mice cream pie, snake sausages and worm thick shakes! Yuk! Would you eat that? We loved the poem so much we decided to create our own poems. Have a look below to see our Pirate's picnics.

Environment Brainstorms

What is in our environment? What is our environment? Room 13 brainstormed our ideas today about what we thought was in our environment. We also discussed and brainstormed our ideas about what lives in the sea and the rocky shore.

All About me Silhouettes


Room 13 talked about how we are all unique! We discussed how we all like different things and are all good at different things. We made these silhouettes to show our different interests. First we drew pictures then we dyed the background lots of different colours. Once the background had dried we went over our pictures in black so they would stand out!
