On Wednesday 5th of July the senior classes all went up to the hall to setup their prep products. When all of us setup the people that were selling their products had to go to their table. Then the people that buying bought some stuff then came back to their tables and swapped with the people who were selling. My group was Awesome Five, the string art group. We had to hammer nails in, then go around it with string. Our group worked well but the one thing went wrong. The art was either not tied properly or it was wrecked. The other reason why it went wrong was we couldn't make enough. Then at the end of the session we finally made enough for the prep assembly. It was pretty hard for us but we managed to get through it.

Information report about Lions

Lions are one of the biggest cats in the cat family.

They live on sunny grass lands of Africa. They live with Buffalo's, Zebras, Giraffes and other kinds of animals. There is also a special Lion in India.

Lions have 4 sharp teeth that are named canine teeth. They also have sharp, pointy claws so when they jump onto their prey they can scratch. When something goes into their territory they roar at it to scare it away.Males have manes and females don't.

When Lions go to catch their prey they jump on them and use their sharp claws and teeth to kill it. Once they take it back and eat it, the cubs have to eat last and sometimes they don't get to eat anything.
