Zentangle and Bunnies

Here are our easter bunny art. We learnt about zentangle art and how it is all about being delicate and intricate - which Andrea said is basically being careful, creative and mindful while drawing. 

We were all very calm and quiet while doing our designs because we are learning about being mindful and being in the moment.

Making Flower Crowns

I went to the Kelmana gardens and I got a flower crown. I saw Trixie there and I saw Amelia too. They are my best friends but then it was time to go and I went all the way home. We went to Animates to see the pets there and my favourite is the cats .

ECR - Enchanted Chainsaw Rampage

Every Monday The Witty Wordsmiths, Anya, Evie, Torin and Olive, get a new story starter from the website FaboStory and then we're challenged to write the middle and end to the story. On Friday Andrea enters them into the writing competition and hopefully, one of us wins. 

Maureen is one of the Fabostory writers...

Maureen’s Story Starter (the story starter that was sent to us)

The school caretaker looked at the remains of his storage shed. “What a mess.” He shook his head. Scientists were calling it a localised earthquake. There was the heap of rubble in front of him.
Very localised, he thought. Just his shed.
The principal patted his arm. “I’m sorry. The insurance company is calling it an Act of God so they won’t pay out any money to help us rebuild it.”
“All my tools were in there,” the caretaker sighed. “The school tractor is under there and the mower…. All the paint and the pool chemicals are in there too….”
There was a slight shifting in the bricks and dirt then a slide of debris cascaded down.
The principal backed away quickly.
The caretaker stared in horror. “Oh no! I forgot I left….”
Anya's story starts here....
Finish the story here:: "my enchanted chainsaw in that broken shed!"shouted the caretaker."Oh no!The rocks are going to hit the button of the chainsaw!" exclaimed the principal. The caretaker smirked. "Mwuhahahaha!" laughed the caretaker .Then RIP!The caretaker ripped off his clothes .He was an evil scientist!"Evil Mc Glee's the name... enchanting things is my game. "Charmed Evil Mc Glee." Mr help me!"cried the principal."NO!" shouted Evil mc Glee."my chainsaw will kill you!" Suddenly the principal put his hand in front of him like he was using the force. The chainsaw went flying towards Evil mc Glee and it hit him! Evil mc Glee turned into a goat!?!"baaa baa ba baaa*" Baa-ed Evil Mc Glee. The goat ran away out of the school." Well no more caretaker, but only a goat"sighed the principal. "Should we turn the school into a petting zoo?" asked a kid who just came out of class. "Maybe so." replied the principal. The next day as you all know ,no more school but a new petting zoo.*you will pay for that.

Bring Back the Monkeybars #BBMB

Most children bring a yummy lunch and a new bag to the first day of school. Ila and Jaya brought that, and more. They came to school armed to change the world...well, at least Grey Lynn Park. Over the summer they started a campaign and brought all their petitions, signs and badges to school o start the #BBMB movement. 

Jaya and Ila started a petition to bring back the monkey bars at Grey Lynn Park. They shared their idea at the first school assembly. 

Please watch the video below, and if you can help, sign their petition and support them. 

This goes to prove that it doesn't matter how small you are, speak out about a good cause and your voice is LOUD!!!!

Jaya and Ila.
