The Gr 6 classes of 2017 are currently enjoying time out at Rocklands, Simons Town. Yesterday, Wednesday, the pupils were treated to a number of physically demanding activities, culminating in a beautiful night hike (we even had drizzle to add to the mood!). Today, Thursday, we had a crazy wind to deal with but we still managed an outing to the beach! More physical activities and of course a light concert quickly filled the day. One more day tomorrow, time passes by too quickly!
The Grade 6s have kicked off their year investigating the musical, Wicked. In Drama they are listening to and unpacking the lyrics of songs while in Design and Technology the practical element comes in. In pairs, they have to design and then create a hat that symbolises the themes they have drawn from the lyrics. The hats are made by fusing plastic bags together using an iron – a skill many had to get to grips with! So far the lessons have been abuzz with problem-solving and planning in between chatting to other pairs for ironing tips. We can’t wait to see the end results!
