Totara 2 Country Study Shared Lunch

Country Study
*Totara 2 were really excited to be working on a country study. There were lots of different countries chosen and many different reasons why people chose that place. We loved learning about new cultures and places around the world. Today we shared our learning with others in the class. Also as a fun way to end our topic we had a shared lunch with food from the countries that we were studying... It was YUM! Here are a couple of photos of the delicious treats that we sampled today.

A few weeks ago we had Book Week.We had to get our Door Display ready for the competition that we have between the syndicates. Ours was based on the book "Wizard of Oz".We were lucky enough to win against the other classes in team B!. Here are some photos of our finished door display.

On the outside the witches legs stick out through the door with a Sign saying "Ding Dong the witch is dead". We made the house out of Popsicle sticks connected together by string. 

On the inside we had the yellow brick road with a sign saying all the different places. By the door there were the lollipops made out of plaited material, crape paper and cardboard. On the cabinet we stuck a hot air balloon made out of string and colored paper.

Hanging from the light we made flying monkeys out of black paper and string. 

On Friday was Book Character day. We all dressed up in our favourite characters to share at assembly. All the teachers came into the hall dressed up as characters from Harry Potter. They even preformed a little skit for us! Here is a photo of the class in their costumes. 

Here's a closer look at some of our costumes
