We have bumble bees all over the garden and we all know where they are coming from!! But on Saturday morning there was still no sign of them by 9:45 am. Do they really sleep in? I don't know very much about bumble bees. Can you help me find out more about them? I didn't get too close for the photo because they all know that I'm the nest disturber!! Do you think they have good memories?

Today we did some serious mixing of paint. Everyone had different colour combinations such as two teaspoons of blue and one teaspoon of white. We had to mix the colours and then paint a sheet of paper with it. Finally we named our new colour. Polly called this colour, "Love heart red." Oscar called his colour, 'Goldy yoke." Next we will share each other's colours and we will know how to make them.
We got some new things in the playground this week. We are all having fun with it. The people who made this are called the Taieri Bloke's Shed. They donated the playground equipment to our school. Thank you for all your hard work.

Do you know anyone incredible in Room 1?
(Thank you Mrs Buschl for letting us interrupt perfect printing.)

What has been hibernating in my compost heap? There has been lots of guesses. It is not worms, rats or mice, hedgehogs, kiwis, spiders, birds, or porcupines. I went back to the compost heap and gently brushed the leaves away with my broom. Oh dear! What a commotion! Look carefully at my photo and you might see what was angry about being disturbed.

One of our fitness activities is making railway tracks.
People line up in single file with a leader at the front.
The leader runs ahead for about five paces and then lies down and the rest of the team will jump over that person.
The new leader will run five paces past the person on the ground and then also lie down.
Whoever is the leader of the runners continues the same pattern, lying down five paces in front of the person on the ground.
When all the runners have passed over the last person on the ground, that person stands and joins the back of the line of runners.
In this way we move all the way to the goal posts and back, seeing how fast we can do it.

As part of our mixing and melting unit, today we cut up different fruits to make a delicious fruit salad. We then thought of definitions for mixtures. Lilly said, "A mixture is when things are mixed together and sometimes they can rub into each other."

Emily emailed me a photo of her sunflower. It is growing so well that Emily had to put it into a bigger pot. She also gave her sunflower a stick to help support it. What a great gardener you are Emily. We are wondering how all the other sunflowers are getting on. Happy holidays everyone.
