16 November Recently we have been learning about Africa and all the Animals in Africa. We have learnt that Africa is a continent. We have learnt about Lions and Elephants and all other life living in Africa. It's really hot in Africa and we like living in New Zealand where it is not that hot. We have made hieroglyphics of the Pyramids in North Egypt. We know they are really big and we have learnt alot about them and their shapes. Mr Sheather has been taking some of our students to learn advanced stuff about Africa. For Physical Education we have been doing our own circuits outside. It is great fun and we are improving our fitness massively. We have also been doing stitchery. That is really fun.
