Tom was so excited that he couldn’t even say a word until… he saw an octopus with 8 long sticky, gooey tentacles and beady eyes.  Tom really wanted the treasure box until the octopus wrapped its gooey tentacles around his throat.  Tom was trying to pull the tentacles off.  He used all his strength because he wanted it so much.  Suddenly, Tom got choked by the tentacles as it chased him around the grooving seaweed. 

Then after chasing Tom the octopus was tired and started to cry.  So, Tom quickly grabbed the golden treasure box and climbed back onto his boat.

Class 16 are practising how to Learn, Create, Share. We gained inspiration for Spring by walking around outside with our friends, our iPads and our whiteboards. We learned more by looking in books and on the internet. We created our own stories. Then we recorded our stories with our friends. We listened with our friends to see if it was a good story and a good recording. We reflected on it and then re-crafted our story. We love working together.
