Today the Koalas worked independently reading about Outram and then completing a fact file to share with the class. We were really interested in their information. Did you know there used to be a train running to Outram? Did you know that Outram was the first town with electric lights?

A highlight for Room 9 every week is visiting the Allen Centre. This week books were carefully chosen and then issued by Gabby who is training to be a class librarian. Laura enjoyed reading a Sunshine book online and we all enjoyed sharing our new books with each other. We love reading in Room 9.

First of all we shared our moving people pictures. We had copied cartoons to see how bodies move. Then we used crayon and dye to draw ourselves moving. After this each child shared the light that they bring to Room 9 such as their music skills, their kindness or their ability to run fast. Each child took a candle to be lit so that it shone on our Room 9 poster. Finally we sang two songs especially written for this assembly. Well done everyone. You were great!

I went to the dentist and I had to wait 5 minutes before they came to get me. They looked in my mouth and said "we need to pull those 2 teeth out!" They pulled them out at the same time and it hurt. The Tooth Fairy gave me $4 and some toothpaste.

We made posters for Room 9 to look at Co-Operation and teamwork. My poster said about the All Blacks using Co-Operation and Teamwork to win the Rugby World Cup. My poster said, Year 3 and 4's share the chores. Also in Room 9 we can work together and shine brightly.

I went out for a stroll to the stone playground and found Stella and Briar having fun on the play equipment. I asked what they could do on the bars. They did some cool tricks. Stella did a flip same with Briar. It WAS fun!

Everyone was working hard in the pool today. Group 3 was practicing their kicking while Group 1 and 2 were working hard at their breathing technique. It is so important that we learn to swim and keep safe in water.

We have been busy preparing our paintings for the Flower Show. We started by mixing beautiful dyes. Next we practiced sketching flowers first with pencil and then using a vivid pen to outline them. Finally we added flowers to our dyed sheets. The results are stunning. Why not come to the Flower Show to see them!
