Yesterday Olivia read the story, "You can make a Happy Cake," in her guided reading session. Look what she walked into the classroom with this morning! We were all so impressed with Olivia and her family and it tasted delicious. Thank you!

We were back in the Allen Centre today and there was so much happening. Brooke brought along some bones and was able to identify them with Charlie and Charlotte. Isaac, William and Lachlan put the body together and Amity knew her bones. Ben spent a long time checking out the books and felt very pleased with his choices. We love spending time here.

When they were all ready, we had a competition to see which one was the fastest. Who can think of another event for our cotton reel tractors? We will continue the competition next week. Who has plans to change their tractor design?
Mmm... that seems to run smoothly now. I wonder if I need a longer lever.
Today we had our second input/ output challenge. We worked in pairs to make a cotton reel tractor. It was quite tricky to get the tractor to run smoothly.

Just before our library time Josh bumped his knee on his chair. When we got to the Allen Centre we could see that he had bumped his patella bone. Poor Josh! William was very busy with the human body while Amity checked out to see where her shells were stored. Ezra got close with the dinoscope while Henry happily read. We love the Allen Centre!

Abigail brought along her guitar to share with us. We always enjoy listening to Abigail sing so it was a special treat to have her guitar as well. What a musical class we have. Next Friday we start recorder classes so make sure you have your recorder at school.

In the weekend Henry biked an amazing 30 km on the Rail Trail. What determination and perseverance! He kept going even though he got a few scratches and cuts. What a fine role model you are for our new school challenge - Accepting challenges and taking risks!

Wet day lunchtimes are always happy, busy times in Room 9. Keziah built a wonderful pattern board. Ezra decided to see how small he could make a paper plane. William, Lachlan and Isaac happily built with the lego while Ben and Dylan are still perfecting their paper plane designs. Input/ output boys!
