On Thursday I made a boat. It was very hard at first but it soon got easier. The thing that challenged me the most was having to drill a hole in the centre of the boat. I then also had to use some very very sticky glue to stick the people, food and flag on. When I had finished my boat I started to decorate it with some waves, a sun and some fish. Then in the morning I brought it to school and did a blog post.

All the Year 4 children have had an overnight camp at Waiora Scout Camp. It was a great success - a challenging tramp, an exciting water slide, yabbying in the river, hut building, delicious meals, amazing games in the evening, a happy DVD, a good night's sleep, a super confidence course, a search and rescue activity, a team building session and finally cooking their own lunch and finishing off with toasted marshmallows inside a chocolate biscuit. Yum! A very big thank you to our wonderful parents who came with us.

What a busy, busy room we had today. One team was making paper spills. Another team was making frames out of the spills. The third team was joining the frames together to make our building. It was HARD work but look at our building with it's wonderful skeleton. One group even managed to weave the paper spills.

Today in the Allen Centre Mrs Steadman took us on a "Seal Adventure." Mrs Steadman found a dried seal carcass at the beach and slowly and steadily we have been finding the bones inside the seal. We have to wear gloves and work very carefully. Soon we will have a whole seal carcass to put together. I wonder what happened to the seal. I wonder what a seal skeleton looks like.
