Today we were lucky enough to have Andrew Willis came to teach how to make home-made instruments. We learnt how to make Drums, Guitars, and Recorders. Each class gets to have a session with Andrew and make a certain type of instruments. There were four kind of instruments each class is making, membrainophone, aerophone, chordophone, idiophone. This is the instrument we are making!

This is our first myth we read this week. It was called The Nephew of the Moon its a Australian Aboriginal Myth. Its about a lazy uncle that makes his nephew find his food and water, the nephew blows on a tree and the uncle goes so high he can't get down and he turns into the moon. We made a chart and we put all the information about the myth on like the story type ,country,phenomena and the characters ,gods or heroes.
El Grego The Magician came to our school on Wednesday to teach us about bullying and how to stop it. The Seven steps he told us were respect, duty, initiative, compassion, caring and courage. This steps will help us to help people who are being bullied. El Grego also showed us lots of magic tricks and illusions that amazed us all. They look after many exotic birds and use them in some of his tricks.
