If you had to go to work today...what job would YOU do?

Rohan would like to be an astronaut so he could travel to the moon and mars. 

Alex would be an engineer or architect so he could design his dream house! 

Alice would like to be a doctor because you get paid lots of money! 

Reuben would be a policeman because you get to keep people safe. 

Zeus would like to work at a pet shop because of all of the cute pets. 

Ella would like to be the ride tester at Rainbows End because you get to test all of the rides. 

Zeke would like to work at the Weta Workahop because I love art and it would be cool to create some of the things they make there. 

Matthew would like to join the navy so he could fly jets onto boats!

CD weaving

Yesterday room 5 & 8 started a weaving project using CDs and wool. It is quite fiddly and you have to make sure you are keeping track of weaving over and under. We will show you some more progress as we go.

Commonwealth Games.

Today we have found out a bit about the Commonwealth Games. First we did some research on what the Commonwealth actually is! It is made up of 53 independent countries who volunteer to be part of the Commonwealth and support each other and work together towards international goals.
This year the Games are being held in Glasgow which is in Scotland. There are 22 events at the Games.
Australia is the country with the most Commonwealth medals with over 2000 Commonwealth medals and 803 Gold Medals.

Market Day

Yesterday we held our Ranzau School market day.  After weeks of hard work and organising it was time to sell our products and services.  We were all really nervous about it and if people would buy our stuff.  It was heaps of fun and all of the groups sold out of their food.  Room 8 made $299.99 profit just from our class.  We learnt heaps and this morning we reflected on what we had done well and what we could do to improve our business if we did it again.  Thanks to our school community for all your support.
