Mr M’s Mystery Blog

Hello everyone.

This is my first Blog page so I thought I would challenge you to solve this mystery of mine.

I have hidden a little prize somewhere in the school. See if you can find it by following these clues.

  1. When I look up all I see is blue (sometimes blue with a bit of white or just grey)
  2. I am hidden in a place where people remember.
  3. We all gathered in this place at the start of the term.
  4. Think of a lamb roast and you’ll find me.
  5. Bring Mr M the prize card to claim your prize.

Good Luck.

Hope to see you soon.

5/6 Colour Wheels

The 5/6 classes have been mixing primary colours to create secondary and tertiary colours. They traced their own template design and painted each one, referring to the colour wheel. After each shape was cut out, it was assembled into their own colour wheel. Great persistence was demonstrated by the students!
