Christchurch Earthquakes 5.8 & 6.0

I was just looking at the Father Xmas photos with my son, down at the mall, when the 5.8 struck!  I had to do a Claude Van Dam...swoop my son up and run with glass shattering in front of me to take cover under the stair well.  I think I need a new career...Liz Van Dam sounds good to me!  I hope everyone is alright.

After the 5.8 quake....I then tidied up and re-assembled the xmas tree.
After the 6.0 quake...

Making Xmas Trees

Today Courtney taught us how to make a Christmas tree by using old Harcourts magazines.  It was so much fun!  What a great way to recycle old magazines.

Christmas biscuits

Today I shared out Christmas biscuits to my class that Mrs Douglas made and I iced. The biscuits were brown and the icing was brown and blue. I put the lollies on top of the icing. They were yummy and delicious.

'Peter and the Wild Poaka'

Judges Comment – A wonderfully adapted story to the New Zealand theme done with humour and retold with expression. Clever animation facilitated with multiple puppets used for the characters. Great use of camera angles and supportive sound effects make for an enthralling story.
