Today we have finally started on our class igloo! It looks fantastic! We have made it out of 366 milk bottles! WOW!
Firstly, we carefully taped together all the scraps of frontrunner we saved from St Clair school when they had their classes redone.
It was quite an effort to flip it over. Do you like the pattern?
Then we all sat on it and declared it ready for the build....
Then we began the build. We carefully marked out the outside circle using a pencil, string and a piece of chalk. Teams worked together to glue bottles together in twos, then we began the first layer. It was really hard to glue the first layer to the carpet.
We watched the video of the build online and checked we were ready!
After that it got faster and easier. What amazing team work...
We are extremely grateful to Denise, Jacqui, Christine, Lynne and Sandra who all came in and helped out during the day! We are hoping for lots more help over the next few days.
We had visits from Room 1, Room 4 and Room 7 throughout the day and we skyped Myross Bush School from Invercargill and Rosmini College in Auckland.
We are very proud of our efforts today!
