Tuesday, 14th June 2011 3rd Project Day
The 3rd project day was an amazing day, we added the final touches to our project (we think it looks awesome). Sadly our mentors Chantelle and Jade were away so our team was all by ourselves. By the third project day everyone was finishing their projects and they were starting to sparkle! Kerry, one of the project helpers, came to our school at lunch time to have a quick look and to take a couple of pictures of all the projects. By the end of the day we had a variety of projects all shapes and sizes and everyone was happy with their effort and loved they project.
On Tuesday the 14th of June, Year 6 had our final project day. Our mentors from Mackellar Girls came to help again. It was lots of fun and we all managed to finish off our projects in time. They all looked amazing and were all very creative. There were mosaics, papier maches, posters, and clay models just to name a few. We had a fabulous day and can’t wait to show our projects to the public.
Tuesday, 21st June School Expo Day
The Expo Day today was great. It was really good to see the faces of the Year 5s when they stood in front of our projects and thought they were awesome. I hope that the year fives got some great ideas if they do Project Penguin next year. The Year 5s walked around for 45 minutes then they voted. Everyone had a great time and we enjoyed showing our projects off. It was also a good time to structure our project the same way we are going to at the zoo. We all hope that the way the Inside Expo Day went will be the same at the zoo. I can’t wait till the Zoo Expo Day!
On the 21st of June, Year 6 had our In-house Expo day. The day before we all set up our displays and got our projects ready. At about 9:30 two Year 5 classes came to the hall and looked at our work. They were very amazed with what we had done and learnt about the Little Penguins of Manly. They then voted for the project they liked the most. After that, the next two classes came and did the same. Once the In-house Expo finished, everyone was so excited for the proper Zoo Expo and couldn’t wait to see who has won.
