Mr Eco!!

On Monday we had a visit from Mr Eco the superhero! He came to tell us all about how we can help the environment. He came all the way from America! He sang songs and rapped about environmental issues. We learnt all about plastic bag monsters and plastic straws. Some of us learnt that we should  be careful what goes down the drain. Have a look at some of the photos. We had lots of fun. - Room 13









A beautiful morning for a picture!

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.
