Today a brand new visitor quietly arrived into Room 9. Casey Caterpillar changed into a beautiful green jeweled chrysalis about 10 days ago. We have been watching the changes carefully and we were delighted to see the colours change today. Half way through maths Demi suddenly spied this beautiful butterfly newly hatched from it's chrysalis. We looked in awe and even saw it's curled tongue pushing in and out.

Today we thought about the four seasons and it was amazing how much we already know. We moved around the tables being careful to read the sheet each time we moved so that we didn't repeat facts already written. I wonder if anyone has a new fact in the morning.
First thing on a Monday morning there is always a lot to talk about. This morning Lily had found another wonderful photo of an ostrich. Great hunting Lily! Noah always likes a quiet game with the lego when he arrives in the morning and we always love looking at his models. Are you going to be a builder, an architect or a designer Noah?
We nervously presented our assembly item and were delighted that it went really well. Everyone had lines to learn starting with the first letter of their name. We then made words out of our letters and finally we each did our own movement as we left the stage. Room 9 you really do shine!

Today we all stood in silence for two minutes to remember the people of Christchurch on the anniversary of the February 22nd earthquake when 185 people died. Many of us know people in Christchurch who were there when the big earthquake happened. We are thinking of them.

Today we had the Outram Mardi Gras and it was terrific. There was great activity in the Pirates Cove where young pirates made cutlasses, dressed up in scarf and eye patch and were decorated with scars, beard and mustache. Finally they were given a container of raspberry jelly and crocodile jubes. What fun we all had!

Today was Beach Education day at Brighton Beach and what a wonderful day we had even though it was a bit chilly. Jules and Zoe led excellent sessions on sea and sun safety and then they led us in some great beach games. We also made sand castles - this shark was voted the winner! Then it was time to enter the surf. Well done everyone for braving the waves and thank you to our wonderful parents!
