We hope you enjoy watching out assembly. We had a lot of fun making up the rhyme and planning our performances.
 
 
G4s just finished our unit Where We Are in Place and Time, and we learned about why people explore, problems they face, how their explorations have changed the world, and many other interesting facts. Then we became explorers ourselves and documented our explorations using a green screen and iMovie.

4JKers just had an assembly based on Christopher Columbus' explorations and a trailer on 4JK Explorers. Watch our assembly here!
 
 
Hi, we are Meghna and Chiemi, the roving reporters from 4SN. 

Last week it was Deepawali, or the Festival of Lights. Deepawali is celebrated because Rama, one of the Indian gods, was going to the forest with his brothers and his wife. After they came back all the villagers were so happy to see them so they had a festival of lights.

We learnt how to make Rangoli from our teacher aid  Ms.Radhika. We made the Rangoli by sprinkling colored powder on the outlined paper.  Ms. Radhika put glue on the paper.  They look beautiful and really colourful. The Rangoli took 2 days to dry. It was hard to make because the powder was hard to stick on the glue.

We also got some  Indian sweets from Ms. Radika, after we finished making the Rangoli. During Deepawali Indians eat a lot of sweets so they can think good thoughts and have a prosperous life. The sweets are made with lots of ghee which is a fatty Indian butter. They are very yummy though!!!

Look up an explorer from your home country and share with the rest of us what s/he did and when. It could be an early or a modern day explorer.

*Remember to cite where you got your information just in case someone wants to read further about your explorer (google.com is not a source!). 

 
 
WELOME TO INDONISIA

SORRY FOR THE TURBULANCE ON THE WAY, WE HAVE JUST LANDED IN JAKARTA, THE
INDONISIAN CAPATAL. Jakarta had so many things; the variety stretched from
musical instruments to funny little cute puppets (even the boys laughed)!!!
We had two young guides to take us around their home! Also, we had two older
tour guides to help us out find our way around the traffic to Indonesia’s
famous sites. They took us to the airport, although we liked Jakarta we are
off to New Delhi, we are sad to leave this cultural phenomenon to go to
INDIA

India, here we are

India the taste of spices that range for curry chilly powder to paprika it
is the place to eat tasty food. In India we experienced cultural differences
from the inside out. Nearly all the foods were spicy. We made our own food.
The only western food was tomatoes!!! WE love India and WE want to go back
soon, our favorite food was the street food and Indian ice cream!!! Even
though we loved the country of great spices we wanted to take a quiz on our
UN day knowledge and world currencies, wonders and capital cities in an
enjoyable but hard test!!! Good-bye spices.

Welcome to Australia

In Art Central (Australia) we made a piece of aboriginal art together with
all 80 hardworking artists. We each made a piece of puzzle and we glued it
and made a beautiful piece of artwork. All though we liked Art Central we
had to start helping the k2s have a buffet with a full on Australian
barbeque! After that we had our amazing buffet and left with full stomachs
and smiles on our cheery faces!

 This is reporters Miya and Taya live on ISS International news. On Thursday September we got visited by none other than the authors of England the two Steves themselves! And what was that reporter Taya? Ah yes their names are Steve Barlow (applause) and Steve Skidmore (more applause). Back to reporter Taya then folks.

Hello! Miya was totally stealing the mic! "We thought they were soooo funny and they called the little kids STICKIES", said 4th grader Lauren. Funny right folks?

They used to be drama teachers and boy did they learn from their experiences, right reporter Miya? and that's a good thing too because they used that in some of their books. And they made a ton of books!!!!!!! "We were all amazed," says 4th grader Anisah, "we thought they were awesome books". Back to you again Miya.

All right lets sum up this thing. Please visit their website and have a good laugh, please we're begging you please, please, please. and here we are kids! www.the2steves.net. Thank you for visiting our blog! Come again! This is reporters Miya and Taya live on ISS International news.
