Impromptu Dance for Art's Week

Well, what else is there to do when Assembly finishes early?

Check out the awesome dance moves the Team 8 hip-hop crew created to Michael Jackson (Yes, they picked the music too!).

I think some of them may have been watching dancing with the stars... Very inspired! :-)

Cupcake Mad

It's no secret that Mrs Grant and Mrs Turner LOVE cupcakes... SOOOOO why not do a whole week of them?

On Monday Team 8 made cupcakes, on Tuesday and Wednesday we created art and stories about them. On Thursday we designed new flavours and made movies about them!

Here are some of the movies we made about our cupcake designs. I wish they were real so I could eat them up! What about you?

Tuesday - Arts Week

Can you believe what we got to do on Tuesday of Arts Week.

Drama and Visual Arts... Team 8 could get used to this sort of learning.

Mrs Grant got us to use some great Drama techniques called Freeze Frame, mirroring and role play.

We listened to the story "Funny Bones" by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. It is about 3 skeletons, one is a dog skeleton. They try to find someone to scare at night time.  The skeletons can't find anyone to scare so they end up scaring each other.

Here we are testing out our dramatic skills...what drama kings and queens we are!!!  (Haha)

After all that excitement we went to see Mrs Burge to Learn how to make Aboriginal Dot art. Here we are getting our hands into the paint and creating out masterpieces.

Cupcake Baking!

Wow, what an exciting start to Arts Week!!!

On Monday morning we headed over to the hall kitchen to make our cupcakes. To inspire our amazing art for the art display later on in the term.
We were great bakers. We were so lucky to have Tina (Zoey's mum), Diana (Alex's mum) and Mrs Clyde to help us. Thank you to those amazing helpers!!!
Here are some of the pictures of Team 8 beating, mixing, measuring, stirring and of course eating our delicious cupcakes!

Learning Mandarin.

We are so lucky here at Sunnyhills.  For a couple of weeks a term we have a lovely lady called Vio to come in and teach us some Mandarin. 
This week we worked hard to say the numbers and write the special characters for the characters. 
Here we are giving it a go.
P.S. Some of us experts in Team 8!

Life Education

We have had such an exciting week at school this week. 
We got to visit Harold the Giraffe as part of Life Education.  Pamela (Harolds helper) talked to us about what makes a good friend.  Team 8 are experts at this and helped Harold to be a good friend.

The Caravan is a pretty cool place to be. The lights make you change colour and we learnt lots about being kind, caring, sharing and helpful friends.
