Bruce Potter the well known author and illustrator came to speak to us as part of Book Week. We laughed and laughed as he shared his books and songs and we were amazed as we watched him draw. It was also a dress up as your favourite book character day. Hartley looked great as Harry potter.

This week is Book Week at Outram School. As a special treat, the famous author Kyle Mewburn came to visit us. First of all he spoke to the whole school and then in the afternoon he came to share with Room 9 and Room 10. We loved listening to him reading his stories.

Last weekend I flew down to Stewart Island in a tiny plane. Gosh what a beautiful island and what amazing birds everywhere. Can you name the birds in these photos? Have a read of the information sheet and add a new fact to this post. Make sure you read the other comments to make sure that you have not repeated a piece of information.
Today Mrs Stedman showed us tiny grains of sand that were the remains of tiny one-celled creatures. We were then introduced to an amazing game that helps us to understand what we would find inside one of these cells. How can something so tiny contain so much!

Today we were very pleased to welcome Constable Greer to Room 9. He has been a Room 9 friend for a long time! He led us in a discussion on what we should do if we get lost. We also watched a DVD about Constable Bryan and his dog Bobby. It is important to know our address, phone number and even a designated meeting place.

The challenge in the Allen Centre this morning was to learn how to use isometric paper. This was a great challenge but it was only the start. We were shown how to draw Minecraft landscapes! With all the Minecraft experts in Room 9, the tables were soon covered with drawings. Of course we issued holiday boks, played chess and enjoyed our books. We love the Allen Centre!
