Bird Feeders

Room 8 want more birds to come to our school and lay eggs so we will have lots of birds to look at.  We made bird feeders to attract the birds into our school.  We made them from recycled plastic bottles, containers, pottles, pinecones and sticks.  We will put seeds and peanut butter inside to attract the birds.

Have a go at the Edgar Centre

What an amazing morning the Year 3/4 children had at the Have a go day at the Edgar Centre today. We got to "have a go" at league, gymnastics, t-ball, golf, gymnastics and cricket. It was so much fun! Special thanks to our wonderful parent helpers Nick, Matt, Adam, Janice and Paula for helping out our children :)

Aquarium Visit

We had an amazing visit to Macandrew Bay and the Portobello Aquarium last week with our friends in Room 3 and 5. We were surprised to find two dead octopus on the beach at Macandrew Bay. We learnt that after they mate octopus die that is probably why we found them washed up on the beach. Thanks to Warren for spreading the octopus out so we could have a really good look at all the parts up close.


Last week Room 2 got a big surprise in the mail. We were sitting down to read a story when Liam came in with a big box from the office, we didn't think it was for us and then he said there were two more in the office as well! We got quite excited. Miss B gave us clues and we tried to guess what was in the box, but we just couldn't. We opened the boxes and were amazed to find teddy bears in bee suits and books with pencil cases on them, enough for every one in the class! Last term we had written to the company who make Marbig pencils because we had got a bad batch of pencils that kept breaking and getting chewed up by our sharpeners. We wrote to them and told them all about our problem so to say thankyou and sorry they sent us presents. We were so happy they took our problem seriously and glad we were brave enough to let them know what we thought.

Snow, snow and more snow!

Can you believe how much snow we have had? I have lived in Dunedin for quite a long time and don't ever remember the schools being closed for two days in a row. I hope everyone had fun playing in the snow, did anyone make a really cool snowman? A friend of mine made one and dyed it green with food colouring it looked really funny.
