For the last few weeks the children have been collecting walnuts from the school trees. They are beautiful, big walnuts this year and they taste delicious. Today the Year 3 children put the walnuts in bags ready to be sold after assembly on Friday. Altogether there were 46 bags.
Every Wednesday lunchtime the Middle Syndicate Guitar Club meets in Room 8. Today some of our advanced players came to help and later they showed us their finger picking. Keep practicing your A chord and E7 chord and remember to press hard.

Today Mrs Dineen came to visit and she told us the story of Simpson and his donkey at Gallipoli. It was so interesting and we had heaps of questions to ask. At the end of the session Mrs Dineen taught us some French phrases and made sure our pronunciation was correct. Thank you, thank you, thank you Mrs Dineen!
The "Extra for Experts" homework activity is an optional extra but this week many children chose to do it. The task was to correctly colour the New Zealand flag and answer questions such as what do the four stars represent? After this the children were able to design their own flags. They were brilliant!

Today Mrs Simpson came and shared her landscape painting with us. We then went outside to look at nearby landscapes noticing that trees in the distance seem to be much smaller. When we moved into the Workshop, we drew sketches of our own landscapes. Finally we painted the background of our landscape. Next week we will add all the details such as trees and fences.

Today we were delighted to see a sparkling blue sky day because this was our Kiwi Golf day. We started the session using flags so that we could learn the correct swing. We then moved on to using a golf club with three different sized balls. Melanie our tutor, was very impressed with the Room 9 concentration, perseverance and skill.
