Grandparent writing and portraits

At the end of Term 1 we wrote and published descriptions about one of our grandparents.  We wrote about what they looked like, what we liked to do with them and why they were special.  We then made portraits of our grandparents using pastel, dye, fabric, yarn and buttons.   We were very proud to share our fantastic descriptions with our grandparents when they came to visit on Grandparents' day.

Grandparents' Day

In the last week of Term we finished off our Growing Together inquiry by inviting our Grandparents to visit for Grandparents' Day.  We had a great morning of singing and Easter activities followed by a yummy morning tea.  Here are some photos of us having lots of fun making Easter baskets with our grandparents and asking them questions about what school was like when they were young.
