Sustainability has been our theme for this term and to finish our study on endangered birds we decided to make bird feeders. We planned and discussed and planned again and today was the making day. It was hard work but we all achieved success.

Brilliant lights lit the hall and huge balls hung from the ceiling as we gathered for the Junior Disco. Everyone wore brilliant costumes and danced for the entire disco. Pyper was voted the best girl dancer and we all cheered loudly for her. What a great disco!

On Friday, Room 9 and Room 10 will gather to listen to speeches and poems. Five speeches and 5 poems will be chosen to be presented at the Outram School Speech night next week. Remember to use expression and remember to project your voice children.
We have been investigating endangered creatures in New Zealand and we wondered what we could do to help. Next week we will have a technology session and make bird feeders to help the local birds during winter. Today Dan arrived with this brilliant bird feeder and Tayla arrived with several designs for a bird feeder.

Charlotte brought a Rubik's cube to school.
It was really hard. I got it all blue except for one. It went in an order from 321.
I got the Rubik's cube while I was in Australia. It is really tricky to do.

The last two groups presented their projects to the class today. They had plenty of new information to share and they were easily able to answer our questions. Now we have to think about how we can help our endangered creatures. Have you got any ideas?

The weather was perfect for our Orokonui trip today. We were greeted and welcomed by Tahu, Nathan, Alistair and Max. We divided into two groups and passed through the predator proof fence and into the ecosanctuary. It was thrilling to watch tui, bellbird and kaka feeding. We watched takahe walking calmly nearby and spotted skinks basking in the sun. Nathan showed us how they trap predators. What a wonderful day we had!
