Saying Goodbye!

Well, today is the last day of the school year and what a year it has been!  Looking back through our blog, we have done a lot of different things. We've been making musical instruments, climbing up rock walls, visiting animals in the zoo, getting very wet around Guandu Nature Park, being Egyptians and wrapping people up as mummies.  We have made some dioramas and written descriptions about them. We've recorded our own stories and made our own videos.  We have achieved so much in one year.

Sadly, though, we are saying goodbye to a few friends. Wen Ting is going back to Singapore, and Jeremy A and Patrick are off the another school in Taipei. All of them will be missed very much.
I am off too. My family and I are heading to Tianjin, China to start a new adventure there. I will be able to look back at all of the work and photos we've posted over the year and remember everyone.

We have been thinking about to what to post in our last post. Here are our reflections:

This year is one of my best school year my favorite is yr 1 second is yr 3 third is resection. I really enjoyed making my diorama . Jeremy L

I had a brilliant year and hope I have another one soon. I’ve copied lots of good examples this year. I have made loads of friends and hope I can make even more next year. Toby

I had a really good year with Mrs. Elrick and all of the teachers. I wish you all a happy holiday. Grace

My favorite part of this year was when we went to the zoo. I enjoyed that because I found out lots of interesting things about the pandas.
I will really miss Mrs Elrick when she leaves because she is very kind and always helps me when I am stuck on something.

Quest Myths

We have been busy over the last few weeks finding out about quest myths. We have read and watched different quest myth stories before planing and writing our own. We planned who our main hero was going to be and decided what the quest was that they were about to go on. We then planned the creature- who or what was it that the hero had to defeat? 
We drew a map of the route our hero would have to take to be able to complete their quest.
Below are our stories. We decided to publish them as recordings and tried to put expression into our voices as we read.
Sit back and listen to what we came up with.

Egypt Day

Yesterday, we had Egypt Day. We dressed up as different Egyptians and spent the morning doing different activities.
First of all, we designed our own Egyptian God or Goddess head dress and thought about what they were the God of. We had some interesting ideas for that!
Then we went to the sports hall to play games with the other 2 classes. We had to work in teams of 6 to wrap one of our team members up as a mummy. It was lots of fun and some people did a great job!

Here are some of the photos of us:
