Outing to Ushaka

Our grade 3 classes went on an outing to Ushaka on Friday 24 February.

We have had the most awsome day with beautiful weather and lots of fun. As we arrived our guide named Pearl took us to the penguin pond where we learned that they identify the females and males by marking them on different wings. In the aquarium she shared the most amazing information with us and she was very impressed with the knowledge about the sea that the children have already had.
After a picnic in the park we couldn't wait to get to kids world. It was the best place and with so many fun things to do that the time flew by.
It was very tired but happy children who arrived back at school for the weekend.

Grade 3 L entertained the grade R's with a little show called "The enormous elephant 

Cassidy listened to Akin telling her that he was an elephant. He told her about his new idea to go to New York because he was bored with his life in the Savanna!  She played the role of a magic monkey! Simarin (right corner) played the crazy crocodile!




Aphiwe was the story teller and she introduced the story to the audience.










Phiwo introduced the animals to the audience!






Mohnish played the enormous elephant on his way to New York!






Diya was the second magic monkey. She greeted the audience and told the elephant that she would like to go with him!










The crazy crocodile ( Aaliyah) was walking along when the elephant asked her to also go to New York with him!





Leah discribed all the animals to the audience.






Joshua played another enormous elephant and elaborated about his boring life with no excitement!







Sonali (magic monkey)  felt just like the elephant and they both decided to look for some adventure!



The crazy crocodile (Tristen) walked up to the elephant and monkey and asked them why they were looking so sad.






He decided to join them in their adventure!






The whole class took their bow to the audience!

Overview of course

I have finally managed to complete week four of the course, just in time before school starts again. It has been a crazy and very busy time right from the day school closed in December. I have made some changes to my layout and tried to add to my profile but for some reason it would not save the information. I am excited to add to this blog and start adding new information of my new class. This has been a great course and extremely easy to follow due to the fantastic clear instructions.
