Growing Together

Year 4 transforms into a fish-canning factory!

This term, the children in year 4 experienced what life would be like for the main character (Stan) in our book study, The Boy Who Swam With Piranhas.  The classrooms were transformed into fish-canning factories and the children were put to work preparing some delicious ‘fish gut stew’.


With the company motto “Work harder, work faster, work longer”, the children showed fantastic perseverance, but quickly learned that life for Stan would be tiring and arduous! After their ordeal, they will now use their first-hand experience to write persuasive letters to instruct the factory owners to close their business once and for all!
