Keep up the amazing work Savan!

Keep it up!
Super Effort Isabelle!
Isabelle has had a busy week at school this week. She has completed handwriting, written some AMAZING stories on Writing Legends, made some beautiful artwork and created a Fitness Plan for everyone in her School Bubble! What a champ Isabelle! Keep up the great work.
Whaea's Challenge for you.

Andre the artist!
Look at Andre's beautiful art work that he has been working on in his School bubble! This is amazing Andre! I can't wait to see the finished product!
Writing Legends- Swamp Monster.
He is a big monster that lives in a swamp and eats pallakis. He looks like a crook that escaped from jail and measures 500 people. Now he waits in the swamp for something to come. He makes traps and sits outside all day playing Roblox, then when something comes he gallops out and he is a horse! What are the odds? He waits for the farmer to bring tea… “hahaha” cried the monster. What? He is now a evil essence. “Oh no! He is a morpher, run every body! Farmer get the animals quick! Go, go, go! What are we going to do?” I said to the farmer. “Get to the truck” the farmer said “Go, go, go now, do it now,” he screamed. Everybody in, the cows mood the sheep maad the horses maad the pigs oinked the chicks clucked the dogs barked and the cats meowed now the famer said “Drive as fast and far as you can.” We sang a road song like ‘Round and round the bus’ we drove miles and miles until we found a farm that we could afford to live in. We moved all the cows, sheep, dogs cats, pigs and lucky last the horse and that was the end of the swamp monster.

I look forward to returning to school and learning something new from you Savan! Keep up the great work!
One of my favorite things that Savan has completed is his Creative writing about 'D-Day' (Doomsday theme). He has used a wide variety of language features, such as metaphors, similes and onomatopoeia. Amazing writing Savan, keep it up!

A very simple but effective idea! I especially like the mix of the two tone greens that you are using. You've got a lot of patience to cut out all the hands Austin and to put it all together! Great work!
ANZAC Baking With Abby!
Abby has been a very busy young lady over the lock down period. Along with keeping up with her learning at home, she has had a very busy morning baking.
