How the zebra got its stripes.

To finish off the term we are doing a mini theme on folk tails.

We started this week with the famous story of how the Zebra got his stripes. 

Instead of 'normal' black and white zebras we painted 'rainbow' zebras instead. They came out so beautifully.











Today we wrote our on version of the story...how the zebra got his multicolored stripes. I was so impressed with what my class came up with. After some editing we went down to the computer room to type up the completed story. They are proudly up on display on the classroom.

Friday's Big Walk

It was wonderful to see how well supported our big walk was. It was literally a sea of blue wherever you looked. A big thank you to all the parents that turned up to support their children.

Afrikaans fun

To help entrench the new vocabulary in Afrikaans for the book Ek is Neels, we played bingo - the children love playing this game, especially because they get to make their own choices of words.

Stars of the week - Chivam and Melo

Well done to these two superstars today - Chivam was recognised for his pleasing progress in all areas of his school work. I have seen a big improvement in Melo's reading these past few weeks, so she thoroughly deserves her certificate today.

Our last pupil of the day - Mulo

Mulo waited patiently for his turn to be the pupil of the day, and at last it arrived.

Hlomulo means Bless - so he must have been a real blessing to his mom when he was born and I am sure he continues to be! He told us that his granny bought him some soccer boots and that his favourite team is Manchester United. Playstation games, particularly Need for Speed, is what he likes playing on his computer. He has watched Kung Fu panda quite a few times too. At night he likes to sleep with his dinosaur Rocky.

A pleasing effort Mulo - well done.

Tuesdays pupil of the day - Nikhar

Last year Nikhar got a bike for doing so well at school. It had to be changed for another type though because the pedal kept falling off. Keep working hard again this year Nikhar and see what your parents get you! 

He brought the most beautiful suit to school to show us. He wore it at his aunt's wedding when he was the ring bearer. It is a bit small now, but Nikhar says his mom is going to keep it as a memento.

He loves dinosaurs and so really enjoyed riding on a T-Rex at the dinasour exhibition at Sun Coast. He even has a dinosaur x-box game that has a kinesthetic sensor so that he can use his whole body to play it.

A good effort Nikhar thank you.
