The Magical Kingdom of Boondagilay

So here is the finished mural the kids from Room 25 created. They have been writing narratives and animating them and all their ideas came from the mural they created.

Fun Friday

On Friday our Olympics Day was cancelled as it was too cold for the kids to be out on the field all day. They were so disappointed, I made the call to have a fun art day.
Riverson, Connor and Mariko relaxing on the couch listening to talking stories

Ryyder, Aniqua, Melemanu and Brittany hard at work colouring in their pixies

Tevita, Bronson, Tyson and Najari designing and colouring in robots

Waiting to go in to Te Reo class.

It was freezing cold but we found a warm space in the sun

Our Magical Kingdom

Last week we decided as a class to take down our Olympic art and replace it with a beautiful mural. To keep both the boys and girls happy we made a stone castle and a rainbow castle, we had knights on horses and wild talking horses. The girls made a forest of feathers for the pixies to live and the boys made a haunted wood where a ghost lived. we made flying dragons and drew a huge rainbow. There was lots of glitter involved........lol......

 For the next 3 week we are writing narratives about the mural. It has been exciting and some of the stories coming out are wonderful. I have started reading them the Sword In The Stone, and showing them some clips on You Tube on what it was like back in those days. But most of all its about letting your imagination run wild and having fun with your writing.

 Here are some pictures of our mural. (It is still a work in progress)
