What responsibilities do Mums and Dads have?

We made a chart for Mum's responsibilities and Dad's responsibilities.
We had to make a space for both Mum and Dad because Mums and Dads can sometimes have the same responsibilities.
This kind of chart is called a Venn Diagram. The two ovals cross over and that is where we put the things that both Mums and Dads do.
Today we found out that in different families, Mums and Dads do different jobs.
We found this out by asking Joel and Kane some questions about what their Mum and Dad's responsibilities are.
Next Ms Donnell is going to teach us how to make our own Venn Diagram so we can show responsibilities in our families.
This writing is by Kane, Maddison, Nic, Milan, Tuhirangi and Ms Donnell

Our Self Portraits

Crayon and Dye Portraits on PhotoPeach
Today we finished our portraits. We have been working on them for a few weeks now.
This was the first time we have needed art shirts and it was quite a job learning how to put them on with a buddy to help and how to fold them and out them away tidily.
Here is a photo of us all ready to go and dye our pictures wearing our art shirts. Ms Donnell thought we were very sensible and responsible.
