Amazingly we have been able to swim for 9 weeks of this term. Kevin told us that the water was 28 degrees. Today we had swimming competitions using all the strokes that we know and some that we made up. Then we had a star fish floating competition and Angus was the clear champion.

There were so many activities to keep us busy. We loved the hut building and Mr Marshall's team building activity. Everyone made their own lunch and everyone took part in a huge paper challenge! It was easy for everyone to get to sleep after such a busy time.

Out seed collection began when Noah brought us a bag of chestnuts. Since then acorns, walnuts, sycamore seeds, sunflower seeds, bean seeds, and pine nuts have arrived. Today Isaac brought a huge seed - a coconut. We have thought about all the ways that seeds travel.
We were very lucky to have a session on First Aid. We learnt how to deal with a bleeding nose. We also learnt how to apply a bandage to an arm wound. Finally we practiced making an emergency 111 phone call. These are very useful skills to know.

Today The New Zealand Playhouse visited Outram School and presented Rap-unzel. They were terrific and we laughed and laughed and laughed. It is a real challenge to engage both Year 1 and Year 8 children at the same time and this team easily succeeded.
