For Inquiry today we had focused on Inspirational Leaders and our task was to choose an Inspirational Leader and create a character profile on them including pictures, colour and 6 interesting facts about them.

Today in the morning, the seniors of Glen Taylor School had gone to the hall to do some activities, games and we watched some videos about being a good leader.

Today for KiwiCan we had watched a movie. We had watched the latest version of Beauty and the Beast. Beauty and the Beast would probably be one of my favourite movies and I also love the songs in the movie. The reason why we had watched a movie is because it was our last session for KiwiCan this term and we had a choice of watching a movie or playing games. It was raining so we decided to watch a movie. Take a look at some of the photos that were taken during our session.
