Making a Splash

Every Friday, we travel to the pools for swimming lessons. Here a few photos of us getting ready to make a splash! There are not many of use showing off our skills as the light is not very good indoors from a distance, plus there is so much splashing going on!

Discovering Ancient Chinese Artifacts

We can learn a lot about a country and its culture by viewing its ancient artifacts. We were lucky enough to inspect these artifacts up close. You can also see more ancient Chinese artifacts by clicking this link:

Hello strangers!

Well, it has been a while since we last blogged, the children of Room 30 have just been so busy discovering the past in Ancient China! They have found that there are so many things we use today that we invented in China many years ago. Room 30 will be looking at Ancient Chinese dynasties over the next few days and learning how to read and create time-lines to present information. We will also find out what major events and discoveries occurred during each dynasty's ruling. Over the next few weeks, students will be working in groups to investigate an area of particular interest to them to follow the inquiry process and develop their research skills, as well as learning about how activities of the past impact on our lives today.

We have also been making a splash with our free swimming lessons at Lloyd Elsmore every Friday! Thanks to all our parents who have helped out so far with supervision. Photos will be posted soon. I wonder if any of these children will be Olympic swimmers one day? You just never know...
