Last Friday, Rooms 5, 4 and 6 got together to learn different games from around the world. Each class had to present and teach one game. We had a lot of fun sharing and learning new games.

Over the past few weeks, we have been reading a lot of interesting books that we wanted to share with our friends. We decided to create our own digital class library so we could share our 'read-aloud' even during home learning.
Please feel free to check out our DIGITAL LIBRARY and listen to our cool books, stories, poems, games and/or recipes!

This week we spent creating our scripts and performing various plays. Finally, we ended up with a fantastic idea of inviting the Gruffalo into Room 5!
We are so excited to work on our play. Our incredible scriptwriters produced a number of great scenes. Our next steps are to select the best ideas and create the final version of 'The Gruffalo Did It!" play.
It will be very hard to select the best actors, so we are preparing for a big audition day to give everyone an equal opportunity to try for a role! Auditions are hard - maybe the hardest part of acting - but all actors do it, so, Room 5's actors are in excellent company!

We've been learning about myths and legends.... we learnt about unicorns and other mythical creatures and all of a sudden we ended up here... Dragons, Dragons, Dragons!
Are they real? Are they mythical? Why? How? Any evidence? So many questions!!!
Room 5 was extremely enthusiastic to explore this topic. We read a lot of stories, we watched some videos and we put our thinking hats on.... Well, if the dragons are not real, they are still VERY COOL! We created our own Dragon that is now looking after our classroom!
We used different art, creative and collaborative techniques to create our dragon:
- drawing on the topic
- paper mache
- other craft techniques that sometimes were re-invented by Rm 5's learners!
- creative narrative writing
- report writing
- instructional writing
- measurements and plan proposals
- and many more!
We had fun learning!
