ZooVentures
On Thursday 17th October Room 7 went to Rm 15 to learn about small creatures. First Sally introduced herself. Next we talked about what all animals need. Then Sally put magnets of things that animals need on the board and we made a real mouse house using the ideas on the whiteboard. Then we put real mice in it. After that we gently stroked a Bearded Dragon. Then Sally got out a Blue Tongued Lizard. Also we saw guinea pigs, tortoise, chinchillas, and fire-bellied newts. Finally we saw a dog doing tricks.

Today Room 7 & 8 went together to the Corbans Estate Arts Centre to take part in a workshop with artist Penny Howard. 
We had a great time learning about her art and the stories she tells through her art. The children then spent time planning and completing their own art. 
The children were thoroughly engaged in the process and the few hours we were there sped past. And then of course there was the bus ride which was another highlight for us.
 We will put our finished art on display in the classroom soon!
