How remarkable to be still swimming and still harvesting at the end of March. Today we collected tomatoes and cucumbers and then went digging for potatoes and some huge parsnips. Then this afternoon we had our last session in the pool and we all enjoyed making a whirlpool. Next Tuesday we have our Middle Syndicate Swimming Carnival.

We took a piece of A4 paper and folded it into 4.
We had a pair of compass and a pencil and drew circles....
...and more circles...
....then we coloured them in...
So I am learning and having fun at the same time! See you soon...

Hello Room 9! This is the view I had from the aeroplane on Sunday night as I flew up to Hamilton.
How lovely to see the sun setting into the clouds...
This morning I went for a walk around Hamilton Lake and saw some beautiful pukekos with their chicks.
So this is where teachers go to school! This is one of the sculptures in the grounds of Waikato University.
Here I am with two of my new friends. It is lovely and warm up here in Hamilton. I will be here learning some new teachery things till Thursday and be back home to spend Easter with Joe and Evie Rose and Mr Grace. I will see you all next week and am looking forward to our next exciting school trip! See you soon Room 9, keep on shining.

This week we have heard from past pupils of Outram School and what a lot we discovered. Today we needed to turn the clocks back with our model of Outram. We made little cottages, added a train and now we are searching for horses and carriages.

Mya, her Dad and her Grandfather all went to Outram School. We had so many questions for them and we studied their photos with great interest. We were surprised to hear about children being strapped long ago if they misbehaved. We were surprised at how much the school had changed. Thank you so much for coming Andrew and Dennis.
We are half way through March and we are still swimming and we are still harvesting vegetables from our gardens. Today we were clearing the corn patch and sowing a winter crop. Again there were bulging bags of vegetables to take home.
