Charli-reaching our goal
This week we had a go at writing words that we may use to reach our goals. We had to use words to reach our learning goals. We wrote them down on to bits of cardboard and then we wrote our names\ incalls and then we wrote them onto the olympic rings colours. Then we put them all together and made a big trill of the words. We weren't allowed to write down a sentence we could only write down two words.
Olympic art-Anna K
Miss Malone started doing this fun olympic silhouette art work with us : First you do swiggle bubbles, no more than 7. Next you choose an olympic ring colour and you paint different shades of that colour. Then you go over the lines in vivid till its thick. So then you go and find an olympic silhouette sport and cut it out and glue it onto your painted paper and your result should sorta look like this.

Two weeks ago the 2016 Rio Olympics had to come to an end, but that's not the end for the Olympics because the Paralympics are soon going to start! It just happens that the amount of New Zealand Paralympians match the amount of children in Room 13, so we got to choose a athlete to research about. Then after we had done some research about our athletes we went on a site called Imindmap (Go down to learn about Mindmup). In Mindmup we jotted down all of our ideas & facts about the athlete.
