Tyla sent a photo of her sunflower. She has two sunflowers to water as she also grew one for Brownies. Is your sunflower growing as well as Tyla's? Why not email a photo of yours. The email address is on all the homework sheets. I hope you are enjoying your holidays. Take care x x x.

We wrote individual letters to the Prime Minister last term voicing our concern about pollution in New Zealand and offering some solutions. We were delighted to get a reply from him.
I hope you all have a very happy Christmas and a wonderful holiday season. Take care! x x x

Today the Junior Syndicate had a picnic at the rugby grounds. After lunch and a long play we had lots of different races. What was your favourite race? I know some of you found the three-legged race very difficult. Here we are lining up to get an ice block.

A few weeks ago we planted sun-flower seeds. One seed was put in the fridge and after many days there was still no sign of a germinating seed. We felt sorry for the seed and put it on to the window sill. We waited and waited but nothing happened. Now finally we can see it is growing.
There was great activity at the vegetable garden today. Everyone helped with the harvest and everyone took a bag of fresh vegetables home. I wonder if anyone has their own vegetable garden at home. Who can see Jacob and Joel?

Our challenge today was to see how high we could make a tower out of newspaper. Each group had the same amount of paper and tape. First we had to plan and then there was a lot of experimenting. It was very difficult. Who can remember how high the winning team's tower was?

Today Mrs Steadman shared with us some beautiful Christmas craft activities. We are inspired to try them. There will be lunchtime sessions in the Allen Centre with big buddies to help us. Gosh Outram School is the best! Thank you Mrs Steadman again!

Today we put the sunflower seedings into plastic bags ready to carry home. Now they have traveled to their new homes. Let's see whose sunflower can grow the tallest in two weeks. Measure your plant, take photos and send them to Room 9 so we can all compare plants.
