Taking out the Term

We've experienced another great term in Room 15. There have been lots of challenges along the way including writing well written reflections for Schooltalk. Some of our favourite things have been passion projects. There have been all sorts of amazing passion project this term such as movie making, sewing, creating animal kits and fashion designing. We have also really enjoyed writing this term, well the majority of us have, for some of speeches were stressful but we overcame the challenge. We were fascinated by learning such a variety of pastel techniques this term, we used oil pastels and chalk pastels to perfect our art. We used all of those techniques to create awesome animal pictures. For inquiry this term we had the choice of exploring science ideas like oceans, climate change, space and human impact. We have all learnt so much about our topics and enjoyed sharing our learning with room 13. We are all looking forward to an exciting holiday and can't wait for orienteering next term. We can't believe how fast this year is going. It feels like just yesterday that this term started.

Why do we have Easter eggs?

A lot of us may chomp on chocolate eggs at Easter, but originally eating eggs was not allowed by church leaders during the week leading up to Easter (known as Holy Week).

Fun Facts

1. The tallest Easter egg chocolate was made in Italy in 2011. It stood at 10.39 meters and weighed an astounding 7,200 kg.

2. In the US, only 12 of the 50 states recognize Good Friday as a holiday.
3. The art of painting eggs is called pysanka, which originated in Ukraine. It involves using wax and dyes to color the egg.
4. The term Easter gets its name from Eastre, the Anglo-Saxon goddess who symbolizes the hare and the egg.
5. The exchange or giving of Easter eggs actually dates back to before Easter and the giving of eggs is actually considered a symbol of rebirth in many cultures.
6. There used to be a tradition churches observed that resembled the game of "hot potato." Here, the priest would toss a hard boiled egg to one of the choir boys.
The boys would toss the egg amongst themselves and when the clock struck 12, whomever had the egg was the winner and got to keep the egg.
7. Peep peep… did you know Americans buy more than 700 million marshmallow Peeps during Easter? This makes Peeps the most popular non-chocolate Easter candy.
8. Americans consume more than 16 million jelly beans during this holiday. That is enough jelly beans to circle the globe not once, not twice, but three times.

15. Half the states in the United States banned the dyeing of chicks on Easter; however, Florida recently overturned this law and now prevents the dyeing of all animals.
16. Not only did Florida overturn the dyeing of animals, but the state also held the largest Easter egg hunt, where 9,753 children searched for 501,000 eggs.
