Below are photos of the grade 6 Rudyard Kipling profiles and art work the kids are doing on Captains Courageous.
My student teachers have been putting up with a messy sports shed for weeks now ( they even volunteered to help me clean it on the weekend) well I couldn't have that so I used their time at school and the hour of lunch time to clean it up. Below is the after photo and I also spent some time putting together a 'state of the art' hoop organiser I bought years ago and forgot to put together.
