Tread Lightly Caravan

On Tuesday, we had the Tread Lightly Caravan come over to our school. We learnt about the importance of saving electricity and how it would impact the environment. We also learnt about the rubbish that can not be destroyed! This was a very thoughtful learning and I would love to learn about it again...

The Process of Mummification

In addition to our learning of Ancient Egypt, we looked at the process of Mummification. We learnt about the processes of Mummification, wrote an explanation about it and are currently making mummies out of clay. When it dries, we plan to wrap our mummies in linen or string.






Ancient Egypt

This week, our class wanted to learn about Ancient Egypt. We were curious to find out about Mummies and Pyramids and about the ancient civilisation. So Miss Tupou planned our learning based around Ancient Egypt.

Here is an information Report created by Faiana about Pyramids.

The Nile River

In addition to the Pyramids and the Mummies, we have started looking at the Nile River. We've been reading about the advantages of the Nile and how this natural resource provided so much for the Ancient Egyptian Civilisation.

It provided many sources of food, transportation, agriculture and enabled possibilities of trade to occur.

Here is Rottpon's presentation on the River Nile. Enjoy Reading :)

Samoan Language Week 2020

GTS had a great experience with Samoan Language Week this year. Between the three senior classes (Rm 13, Rm 12 and Rm 11), we made 3 famous Samoan dishes.

On Tuesday, Rm 12 made Koko Alaisa for all of the three class. On Wednesday, Rm 13 made Pani Popo. On Thursday, Mrs Faalili and her family made an 'umu for the whole school, and on Friday, Rm 11 made Panikeke Mafolofola.

It was a week filled with Authentic Learning and everybody at Glen Taylor loved it!

Cartoonify Yourself

Today, our class watched a video on how to cartoonify yourself on Google Drawing. We used tools called Polylines and Curve lines to create our images.

This is Room 11's first time trying this out - hope it's impressive.

Enjoy!
