Lego Challenge

This weeks first challenge is to take a photo of a lego character in an indoor or outdoor setting. You’ll need to make sure your photo is clear and the lego character is the focus of your photo. Think about what type of lego figure you’ve chosen and what type of environment might suit that character…

Make sure you put your photo in your album for next week

Your second challenge is to name your lego figurine, create a superpower for the character and make a list of 15 characteristics the figurine may have – either on the  inside (emotions and feelings) or on the outside (looks and appearance)

Make your list in Notes, making sure to put your name and grade at the top

Have fun, get creative and use your imagination….:)

It was SMILES all round this week… :)

Here’s a few photos of the Grade Threes enjoying the Kitchen and their cooking…




There were lots of laughs, smiles, stickiness, mess and of course chocolate 🙂

I’m hoping that least one of the wagon wheels made it home for you all to see. I couldn’t say the kids would have shared them though… I was very protective of the ones I made too 🙂
