We've just started reading The Tale of Two Cities so I thought we could try our hand at making a guillotine model each. With plenty of balsa wood, masking tape and  PVA glue we gave it a go and created some terrific looking models. These two need painting. There are 2 more to be made by the end of the week. I'm debating whether we should make a little victim or not. I'll see what they decide. We are doing information reports on convicts and transportation ( Magwitch was sent to Botany Bay for life) and today we created a time wheel about early settlement and transportation.

The grade 4s created their great glass elevators today. While researching it we discovered a musical version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in England. It looked great, hopefully it makes it out to Australia.
