We are using a range of different materials including balsa wood, bottles and plastic bags.We will be building a trench and will be racing our boats. Most of us have started building our boats and some of us are starting to decorate. We have chosen a team name and a boat name, ourboat name is called Queen Avril and our team name is Festie Besties! We have finished building our boat and we are now starting to decorate, we are using shells. On the 18th of November we will be having our boat race. Let the best boat WIN!! Sharni & Mia

Today Thursday the 8th of August 2013 Mrs Knight and her newly born child Anneliese came in to see us. We have made them a present that we had presented to them. We made hearts that we had painted a design on and then sewed together, we did it all with the help of Nanna Sharyn.
When Mrs Knight arrived we were all really excited to see her and Anneliese. We all agree that Annelies is very cute.
Enjoy our visit with Mrs Knight!

This year the subjects each term have been Science is Magic, Economics and Government. This term we are working on Government and we have to write up a project. We got to choose a minimum of 4 activities which we have to complete before the end of term.
In writing we have a new topic to work on. We have to write a narrative within a 2 week period. There are many topics to choose from but most of the topics have been chosen by the students. Some students are even up to typing their narratives.
This weeks King and Queen are …
BELLE AND JEREMY!
You might be wondering what our king and Queen are. It is a new addition in our class room. The King and Queen are the 2 student of the weeks. They have been chosen by Mrs LoRicco because they have done fantastic things the week before. The King and Queen get to sit at an old desk that has been painted and done up by the wonderful Mrs LoRicco. The King and Queen sit at the desk for 1 week before moving to the new King and Queen’s old seats.
5/6L are excited to be able to post a blog to their parents.
