Soap Carving

This week we have been learning about adding depth into our art, how to manipulate soap to give carvings a 3D appearance. We have had fun trying out different tools to carve with, settling on using skewers for our final product. Check out some of our designs.

This week we won the school penguins for having the cleanest class, their names are Lightening and Eliza. We are also working very hard researching, planning and designing brochures for a trip around Christchurch CBD. Some of our brochures are looking amazing!

Bake Sale

This has been a busy week, this morning we had lots of lovely baking arrive in Room 7 and 8. The two classes then walked their baking down to the Burnham community hall ready to be sold.

Kiwiana Flashmob

Mrs. Keenan was playing some very old music over the speakers this week, so Room 7 & 8 decided to show her how it was really done! We sung the chorus of three songs, Ten Guitars, Gumboots and Alice. We managed to sneak into the office without her hearing us until we started singing. 

Room 8's Swimming Star....Sophie

On Monday the 10th of March Sophie attended the zone swimming competition. This is one of the videos taken of her amazing swimming. She placed first in freestyle and third in breast stroke.
