The children are true explorers of the New World ... They loved hardtack and asked for seconds, I'm unsure if they could eat it day in and out after days and weeks at sea! I think the contrast of bananas came as a welcome relief to the early explorers on encountering the Americas.
Well done to this weeks award winners ... Lewis, Louie, Davy and Heidi, keep it up!
We used the app make me a pirate to transform ourselves into the ultimate pirate with very authentic looking facial hair!

The children excitedly looked at each other's learning logs, children supported each other and asked each other how they had discovered new facts. Thank you for everyone's support with their child's learning log it has really enhanced our learning in class.
We used our learning logs and information found in class to find answers to our Columbus challenges.
Excellent use of our class topic books, applying skills developed in our daily English lessons.
