Painting our mural

This terms inquiry at Pt England is Technology.

During the term the village have been looking at different ways we can make our environment a nicer place to learn. As a team we came up with a solution - paint a mural! Room 26 have planned a picket fence to paint with each student having their own picket.

We have finally started to paint it! Very exciting!

Make sure you take a look at our blogs to see some of our great ideas and to follow the progress of our mural.

This is our first year blogging and it has taken us a while to get the hang of it.

But.......some of us have been learning fast and are already posting by ourselves! Take a look at this post from Akar. It is a story that he wrote about a video we watched called A Cloudy Lesson. He independently posted this on his blog without help from any of his peers

Our crazy silly story

Today we created a silly story together. The whole class was involved and each made up their own sentence. What was produced is a silly and imaginative story.

I went to the zoo. But it was no ordinary zoo. It was a silly zoo.

Once upon a time there was a man riding a fat chicken. I saw a cat wearing pants. I saw a dog wearing underwear.  I saw a cat dancing like a disco man. I saw a pig with wings. I saw a butterfly with rainbow hair. There was a elephant wearing underwear. I saw a fat cat. I saw a cat having a party after he got married. I saw my dad in the hallway and he had had a drink and vomited. I saw a cat flying with boots. I saw a cat dancing. My cat was named underpants wonderpants. I saw heaps of dogs having a party on a police car. I saw ants driving the police car. I saw two little fat cats running around with a dog who crashed into an old lady. I saw a fat cat who got married. I saw a dog on a slide. I saw the bat riding a car who feel asleep and crashed it.

It was a crazy day at the zoo.
