Was there anything else that you really liked and why?

House Colours

As well as making toys on Thursday we also had our very first House Colours Song Competition. The grade 6 children worked extremely hard to come up with a song for each house. They took popular songs and worked in small groups to write new lyrics that had a sporty sort of feel to them.

Galloway’s song was to the tune ‘We are Family’

Lee’s song to the tune of ‘Uptown Funk’ by Bruno Mars

Hurst’s song was to the song ‘Hall of Fame’

Devlin’s song was We Will Rock You

Take a look at the slideshow below for some photos.

As well as sing their house colours song the preps also learnt words and actions to Michael Jackson’s song ‘Heal the World. They did an amazing job to remember so many lyrics. Well Done to Miss Wencel for making this happen.

I will try and add the house song videos in the next few days

What was your favourite part of the afternoon?

Wooden Cars

On the second last day of term we decorated and made our very own wooden cars. We were so lucky to have a very special dad purchase all the timber and cut all the wheels out for us. He also cut the body of the car and axles to size and drilled holes in the wheels and the body. All we had to do was decorate them brightly in texta and put them together,

We had so much fun racing them outside and seeing them flip over as they went down stairs. We couldn’t have completed this project without the help of that one special parent, so a very huge thank you goes out to him. We loved our cars to pieces!!

Take a look at our excitement in the slideshow below.

Hopefully you have lots of fun playing with your wooden cars over the holidays.

You might even like to take some video of your car doing cool tricks!
