After reading today the Koalas group presented a play to the class. They used great expression and actions. After the performance they had prepared questions for us. Well done girls.

Today was a very busy day at Gardening Club. Carrots and potatoes were dug, lettuces were picked and tomatoes, cucumbers, aubergines and capsicum were collected from the tunnel house. What a harvest! Everyone went home with a big bag of vegetables.

We set off on a sparkling bright morning heading for Dunedin. First stop was the Anatomy Museum where Mr Smith took us on a fascinating tour and showed us many body connections. Next stop was Discovery World where we found connections all over the place. Finally we had lunch at the park in Mosgiel where we used our bodies to climb, run and swing. What a fun day!

It was a beautiful autumn day today. During lunch time Amity and Henry made tunnels that connected in the sand pit. Byron and Cameron were also digging. Out on the field Dylan and Ben looked like the All Blacks working on their ball skills.

We were a smaller class today with autumn colds and sneezes and it was a very chilly day. However the Allen Centre was warm and welcoming as usual. One of our favourite Allen Centre activities is sharing our new books with the class. It is always good to hear what our friends are reading.
Today we wrote chain sentences about autumn leaves. We built lists of adjectives, verbs and adverbs and then used these words to write brilliant sentence about autumn leaves. We all shared our favourite sentence with the class. Soon you will be able to come in and read them.

We have made up two characters during our connections work. Healthy Harry knows all about leading a healthy life. Sad Sid goes to bed late, only eats treat food and spends hours watching TV and playing computer games. He is often tired, grumpy and off task at school. We decided to write to Sad Sid and tell him how to lead a healthy life. Come in and read our letters.
We have been working in groups to find out about different parts of the body. When we had found our facts we published them on strange shapes. I wonder if you can guess what we are going to do with them next. It might have something to do with connections!
