Today we had a whole school sports tournament. The Middle Syndicate had their events between playtime and lunchtime. There were four events to choose from - hockey, soccer, touch and chair basketball. We will find out the scores on Monday!

Today we were very pleased to welcome Aynsley's Mum and the family hen and her chicks. We all got a chance to gently hold these little chickens and to feel their warm bodies. We learnt that the mother hen talks to her chicks and uses different calls for different messages. Aynsley was able to answer all our questions.

The Koalas reading group had an independent activity today to make a spinner. It was not as easy as it looked and there was a lot of adjustments that needed to be made. They were all tested out in the wood chip playground and then we were able to watch the launching of the spinners in Room 9.

Our Extra for Experts challenge this week was to make something useful out of used paper. Nick made an envelope and Seth made a documents holder. Rosa made a container out of paper mache and Luke showed us how to make a box for holding straws perhaps. It was very tricky and he didn't use any glue or cellotape. What experts!

In autumn we collected and sorted seeds from our gardens. Recently we planted the seeds and now we have apple trees, a pine tree and a walnut tree growing. We are still waiting for the watermelon and surprisingly the sycamore to germinate.

I was happy :) that I got a GOLD medal for doing a great job at Athletics.
In the beach flags race I let Carlos get the last flag.

We divided into four groups at Brighton Beach and rotated between planting, non-stop cricket, beach flags and sand sculptures of Little Blue Penguins. There was also time to eat lunch, run relays and play on the sand and in the stream. What a perfect day!
