Myrtil the Turtle

Myrtil the Turtle

Today in Room 6 we spent some time exploring Mrs Ramsay's car Myrtil the Turtle (a 1962 Volkswagon Beetle). We then wrote some fabulous stories about Myrtil. How many children do you think we could fit into Myrtil?

Author Logan wrote - Myrtil the turtle is 51 years old and it was smelly. 24 children fitted in Myrtil the turtle and the colour is green on it. It's slow like a turtle. It was fun and a little bit scary. The groceries go at the front. The engine was at the back of the car. I thought it was a real turtle and there is no seat belt in the back. The car was hot!

Learning Buddies & Dakta creations

Treasure Hunt

Room 6 went on a treasure hunt around Parkvale School. Look at how we worked in teams using our clue books to find all the treasures.The Treasure Hunt helped us learn where some important places are around school.

"We had some fun with play dough. The play dough was white but when we squeezed it with our hands it changed colour." From Camo.

Super work marvelous munchkins, you are all so clever at writing your names!
