Everyone was so happy, and it was so much fun.

After dancing, we ate the big cakes and went home feeling happy.

Selwyn’s Secateurs

Standard

Today, I was cutting the banana trees with big secateurs because some were broken from the wind. Also, one of them had bananas and I chopped them off. Some had yellow leaves and I chopped them off. I was being a good worker. Clayton and Steve were helping me because the trees were big.

The other kids were pulling weeds and feeding the chickens.

After lunch, we went to class and we were reading books. Some of the girls were making banana cake and it smells good! When it is ready we will all eat it.

I am having a good day.

Happy Easter from Ellemor 2

Standard

On Wednesday, we made Hot Cross Buns in our classroom.

Kids had to measure ingredients carefully, knead the dough and be patient while we waited for the dough to rise.

Then they had to think carefully about how to divide the dough into equal 16ths.

The buns were really yummy and worth the effort!

On Thursday, we used natural dyes to make some colourful Easter Eggs. We used fresh eggs from our Garden.

We used tumeric to make yellow, red and brown onions skins to make dark chocolate brown, tea to make light brown and red cabbage to make pink. We added vinegar to the water to help the dye to stick to the eggs.

We put stickers on some, and leaves and flowers on others to make beautiful patterns. We wrapped them in thin material so the dye could still get through. 

           

They looked so great and and by using only natural ingredients, we were still able to eat the eggs after we had enjoyed looking at them!

Later, Easter Bunny visited Ellemor 2 class. All the kids were outside playing at lunchtime, so he snuck in and filled up their Easter Baskets!DSC05308

When everyone came back inside there was a lot of squealing, and everyone was very excited to see their baskets full of chocolate eggs!

Easter Bunny left some extra eggs behind. So all the kids decided to make more baskets, then chose an adult working at the school to deliver some chocolate eggs to. It was a great way to make sure everyone got their Fair Share, and for us to say thankyou to all the teachers, canteen workers, office staff and Assistant Teachers who have helped us out this year in our classroom or the Garden. 

What a great couple of days!

Happy Easter everyone!

Being a waiter at the Graduation

Standard

At the graduation dinner, the tables and all the decorations made by Ellemor kids and the FaFT ladies and Edi were so beautiful. Carol helped her kids to make beautiful flowers and also to put real flowers that they got from the garden on the tables. Ses and his class made a really flash banner with all of the Graduating kid’s photos on it. Caitlin’s class made a banner too and they made some more table cloths and helped to stick them on. It was so nice that all the classes and the FaFT mummies were helping us to get the Graduation ready.

At nightime, I was serving the people some food and some treats. They felt excited about the food and I felt proud to be doing that job. Some grade 5s from the other Ellemor classes were helping too and they were really good at that job.

Then we started the speeches then we started giving the awards. All the kids from Ellemor 8 made speeches and they were really brave! Their families loved to see them speak like that.

After the awards, they went home and we helped Wendy to clean up. Lots of other teachers like Tony, Caitlin, Carol and Noella were staying behind and helping too. Everyone was so happy to work in a team.
