Pirates

In the past, ships were made of wood and had sails like this pirate ship. It took a time to get anywhere especially when the wind dropped. We hope you like the wall display we created. Hope you enjoy sharing these characters. "Shiver me Timbers!" Arrr!

Farewell Kashin

We have discussed our ideas about Kashin as part of our News and Views. In Room 5 we felt sad that we won't be able to visit him any more and many of us think: "They should hurry up and get a new elephant so that Burma won't be lonely. "Its no fun having a mud bath alone." "A year is too long for Burma to be alone." "I hope we don't lose Burma too." What do you think?
One of our students brought an elephant ear headband to wear and a soft toy which 'trumpets' when its squeezed. We won't forget you Kashin. Rest in Peace.
