We had a lovely start to the day today when we all gathered in the hall for a sing song...i mean a concert...Jenny, our music teacher has been working with all the classes (and the staff) to learn songs to a standard ready for sharing. We sang "the Rattling Bog". It is a folk song with actions and ends withan elephant hatching from an egg!! Make sure you get your child to give you a demo at home tonight!!

Here is Joy posting our letters to Santa. We asked him "How are you?". We told him about some of the times we were good, like helping our friends and family, playing nicely with people, remembering to say sorry when we need to and using our manners. Then we asked very politiely for a present we would like to get!
Now we will just have to wait and see.
Today we had the fun of watching the balsa wood race cars room 6 has been making go racing. The kids have carved plain blocks of balsa wood into aerodynamic shapes, then added wheels and paint. Today dteven set up the track whichnis two parallel wires in the hall. Each car had the wire threaded onto it, a gas jewt fitted and off they went. They were super fast. The kids had done a great job making them. Thanks for sharing Room 6!

Today we went out and viewed our site. We have to decide where everything we moved is going to go now that we have cleared the space. So we cut out shoaes and placed them on a scale map to show what we each thought would work. We used a meter ruler to feel how wide a space was so we didn't cramp things up too much.
Come in and see our maps.

We have been working hard in the garden.
Joe says," We worked so hard we are nearly done! We cut down a little tree and put it in the red bin"
Chris liked using the big shovel because it was to fill the big buckets up with.
We all feel very proud of our work. Look at the before pictures.

Over the last three weeks we have been learning how to mix our own paint colours and use the brush in different ways. Last week we painted a wash if clour on a piece of paper. Today we got to paint a picyure on that coloured background. It was a lot of fun. We read a story about Vincent van Gogh who was trying to paint lihht! No one liked his paintings when he was alive! Hopefully someone will like our pictures!

The weather stayed ok for us to get out and begin to shift the compost piles. This was hard work and we have done about half the job. We also had to keep stopping to look at all the creatures we found. Meanwhile jon and his group of boys got the worm farm out of its corner, turned it over and attached some wheels. thursday is going to be really messy cos the worm farm needs cleaning....
Remember to bring your boots and old clothes again on thursday and hope it doesn't rain.
