Recent happenings

Let's start with Charlie: Dress up day at school about 3 weeks ago - Charlie is Peter Rabbit.  Can't forget his (finger) carrot!
Here is Charlie's beanstalk, in line with the fairy tales theme (Jack and the beanstalk).  I didn't realize it was a real bean plant until the long bean started to actually appear!
Charlie's class has been talking about volcano.  Not too shabby :-)
And here is Graham - thankfully not locked up in a locker (at the golf club) like Charlie was last year.  Ha ha ha!!!
For Home Learning, Graham had to create a 3D model of something that produces light.  Here is his paper-mache sun.  He did it all by himself!  He rolled up some newspaper, tape it up, and glued it all up.  We recycled his cardboard shield from last year and then worked on blending the colors of the sunset. Obviously no Picasso but an "A" for effort!
And here are a couple of artwork/pieces that was brought home recently.  Graham's interpretation of the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi:
I see it!
And I really love his owl!  Graham copied it from a picture that was provided by his teacher.  He said he didn't know how many feathers to draw, so he put lots :-D
Excellent work by both boys!!!
