We have been reading a book called " Tas and the Caves of Doom". In the book the person took photos of a background and then a photo of themselves and then added themselves into the background photo.
We had a go and this is the end result, we are quite clever!!!
The story was also a pick a path story, so we added our picture into the story line.
The story also had MUD MEN mentioned, we researched who they were and where they lived. Luke would like to be a mud man but Kate, Siena and Nivae would not like to be one.

Do you know where MUD MEN are from?

Ancient Greece

Over the past few weeks children in Room 19 have been researching Ancient Greece. The research, reading, writing and presentation work has been AMAZING. I have been impressed how you worked individually and also, at times, worked in pairs to help and support each other. 
You were truly ACTIVE learners.

100 Medals

One hundred New Zealand Olympians have won medals since 1908. 
We are very proud of these sports people and I'm sure we will have a few more medals before the games in London are finished. 

Thank you Open the door to b4 , we saw this on your blog

Molly's Greece work

I made this HUGE poster about Ancient Greece.

Fabulous job Molly :)

This term so far-

We have been so busy this term we haven't had time to do our weekly round ups.
  1. We read a great book called The Tunnel " by Anthony Browne and did some interesting activities.
  2. We started a unit on Ancient Greece. We did a sort of play -  some boys went to school, some girls had to cook and clean and sew and the others were slaves. They had to make us desert, wash feet, help others and clean up around the school.
  3. We have been making posters about Ancient Greece. We have had to research about - Where ancient Greece was, reasons for Olympic games, clothes, daily life, houses, theater, Athens, Sparta and Architecture. We have liked making the books because its fun researching, they tell us lots of information and they look really cool. It has extended our knowledge.
  4. Olympics. SSHHHHHH dont tell anyone- We have had a tv on at playtime and lunchtime to watch the Olympics.
  5. New Zealand is doing really well in the Olympics, we think they will get more medals.
  6. Mr Baker has been in taking our class for a few days. He has a funny voice when he reads us stories, we like having Mr Baker in our class.
