Mrs Stedman set us a challenge to create something beautiful out of our school waste paper. Ezra and Fynn collected the paper from the recycled paper bin by the photocopier. We then got busy ripping and arranging the paper. We all created something beautiful!

We were back in the Allen Centre today and Mrs Stedman had another challenge for us. "Everything is interesting,'" we were told and our challenge is to create a beautiful picture out of discarded paper. We will have to search through our paper recycling box before we start work tomorrow!
Today we had our Jump Rope Challenge to raise money for the Heart Foundation. For the last few weeks we have been hard at work practicing our skills and today the skipping was brilliant. When we started many children could not skip but today it was amazing watching these clever children. I wonder how much money we have raised?

On Friday Mr Marshall came into Room 9 to show us how to use a learning journal on our home page. Hamish had produced an excellent homework task and Mr Marshall scanned his work and added it to Hamish's learning journal. Then Hamish invited Ezra to make a comment and of course Ezra was delighted to do so.

Today we had some beautiful big pictures of traditional Maori life. Our task was to look closely and try to discover something that no one else had seen. We also wrote down any questions we thought of. When we shared our findings, it was amazing what we found.

Thirty children in a small classroom at lunch time on a wet day could be noisy and chaotic but not so in Room 9. Everyone is able to keep busy and happy. Meg was sharing her string games while Sam ate her lunch after kapa haka. Seth was busy on an i pad, Cameron was drawing and Olivia and Andrew were playing draughts. At the back of the room was a huge lego construction site.
