Just a brief update today! I thought I'd share the map of rainforest information that my class started creating earlier in the year. It's a good way of getting into a topic early on and for children to share the information they find. As you can see, the children post using their online rainforest cryptonyms which they choose at the beginning of the year.

Hangout with Taiwan
We had our last hangout of the term with Chong Ming Elementary school in Taiwan.

|Children made chilli and flatbread|
Our school chickens really came through lots of eggs this week. And many children brought in produce that had been homegrown. Throughout Thursday and Friday children were cooking chilli, flatbread and toppings ready for one of the evening dinner options.
Mod Roc and Greek Masks
So for our Domino sessions, we've been getting stuck ancient Greek mask making inspired by the history topic we'll be studying next year. Here are the children working away on the early stages.
