During the last two weeks, students in K-2 have been learning about the fairy tale of “Hansel & Gretel” in both their literacy and library sessions.
On Monday, one of the teachers brought in a beautiful gingerbread house, decorated with icing, jelly babies, jubes, musk sticks, licorice allsorts, jelly beans and Smarties! We took it down to the assembly hall on Monday afternoon and it only took about 150 students and 150 seconds for the whole house to be devoured! Thank you, Ms Stockton and Ms Stockton’s Mum for making the students and teachers this great house. It was delicious.
I managed to have a picture taken with the house before it was eaten.
Even the crumbs were delicious!
On Friday, the students of 1S did some great paper collages about gingerbread houses!
The students in 2FR have been creating a digital story in PowerPoint called “Handsome & Gentle”, a parody of “Hansel & Gretel”. Their story has two mean children, a good witch and a magical house made out of a giant magician’s hat! (The link is HERE.)
