The Middle Syndicate set off to Woodside Glen in the rain yet miraculously not another drop fell while we were there. We played in the river and walked along bush tracks. We played cricket, rugby, rob the nest and had races such as the three legged race. Some children made wonderful Borrower's houses in the bush. What a wonderful picnic!

We were thrilled to watch the ballet group present their performance in the Allen Centre. Edith, Lucia and Bridgette danced beautifully and we felt very proud of them. We loved the performance so much that we were allowed to watch it twice!

We continued making mixtures today when we combined vinegar and baking soda. First we made predictions. Then carefully we poured the vinegar on to the baking soda. Oh gosh! What a reaction. Our mixture made carbonic acid which quickly changed into carbon dioxide and water.
There was a keenly contested quiz in Room 9 this morning. Our Extra for Experts activity was to bring New Zealand knowledge questions to school. Each quiz master asked the questions to a team of four who were armed with chime bars. It was a very close battle but in the end Seth was the winner.

Today we were back in the swimming pool again. We were very pleased to watch Hunter share his swimming skills. Mr Marshall and Mrs Temoko also came to watch. Then we worked hard at our swimming technique. We need to be safe in the water this summer.
There was a fine performance of 'The Billy Goats Gruff' today by the Polar Bears reading group. Noah and Regan were assisted by Ted and Mrs Wright. There were some tricky questions at the end. Well done boys.
