What a busy term we have had so far!!

Well, you might have noticed we have been a bit quiet on our blog this term, we apologise if you have missed our amazing posts. However, we have been having such a busy term, that we keep running out of time to post about all of the incredible learning we are doing in the Realm of Rodda.

We have been away to Camp Birrigai where we had an incredible time. We got to build camp fires and make our own damper. We got to have a go on the giant swing or possum glider high ropes swings. We were put into families and had to claim our land and trade with the shop to be able to pitch a tent and buy supplies - some of us even got sent to gaol!! We learnt how to pitch a tent with just a tarp and some rope and sticks, we even got sent back to school in the 1820s. We had an excellent time and the year 3 students are already wanting to go back again next year!

Even though we came back from camp exhausted, we got straight into our rehearsals for the end of year concert. We danced and sang to a mash up from different Disney movies. Our performance was named, 'A Night at the Movies'. We had to learn lots of songs and learn our dances and actions really quickly so that we could show all of our families and friends at the end of year concert last Thursday night. Some of the songs we learnt included; 
  • I'll Make a Man Out of You from Mulan
  • Bear Necessities from The Jungle Book
  • Be Our Guest from Beauty and the Beast
  • Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from Mary Poppins and
  • On My Way from Brother Bear

Mulan - I'll Make a Man Out of You

Beauty and the Beast - Be Our Guest

While we have had a busy term, we still have lots more fun and learning to do over the next two weeks. We also have our water fun day in week 10, which we are very excited about.
