Children collected ice in the playground and Mrs Stedman showed us how to examine it with the microscope. There on the edge of the screen was a perfect hexagon. We also looked at Michael's remarkable sketch.
The Extra for Experts challenge this week was to focus on friendship by producing a rap, a song, a poem, a poster, a story or a model. We enjoyed looking at Liam, Laura and Briar's posters and Emilee's model, we listened to Hailey's poem and we all joined in with Lily's rap. Well done children.

This morning when I drove to school it was -6 degrees! In the staff room there were some stale scones so we covered them with honey and put them on the bird table. Flocks of wax eyes and sparrows enjoyed the feast. Suddenly a beautiful tui landed on the table and all the smaller birds quickly settled in a nearby tree waiting for the tui to leave.

Yesterday I went to art class. I drew a picture of Mario. I painted Mario with a paint brush and Jill helped me. I want to keep it. I will show Nana.
What a great job Hartley did :). We loved this picture because he looks just like the real one!

This morning Briar and Hannah shared their guitar finger picking with the class. They have learnt to read tabulature on the guitar and it sounded great. Mia has been making crystals and we listened with admiration. Finally Hartley read his story to us beautifully and then checked to see if we were listening. Thank you children.

Today while we were at the Allen Centre, Mrs Stedman showed us how plastic bags could be transformed into beautiful creations. She showed us how to make plastic rope, ballet tutus and incredible clothes with smocking designs. We sat in amazement. Some of us are going to try to make the plastic rope.

The Life Education Bus is a wonderful place to visit because we meet Pip again. Today we talked about how we can fill or empty each other's buckets. Harold the giraffe even sang to us. A visit with Pip always makes us feel very special.

For many years we have enjoyed the Andersons Bay flags that Mr Warwick Larkin has flown above his house. We have competed to see who could name the country first. Sadly Mr Larkin died recently and we will miss him. I have photos of the flags that I will continue to use and we will continue to think of Mr Larkin.
Who will be the first to name this easy flag? Can you name the capital of this country and the president?
