Here is Riley competing in the Mid Canterbury County Cross Country.
This week we finished our drawings of cats in the style of the Brazilian artist Romero Britto. They are real bright and make our classroom look nice. We think we will do our art work for the PTA auction in the same style. Watch this space.
On Monday Room 1 did science. We did mirrors, light and colour. It was very interesting and i learnt a lot about it. We got a sheet and it had half of a picture on it. We put the mirror against it and did the other half. it was fun.
We made light patterns on the ceiling. Next week we are making rainbows with prisms.
Millar from Room 1 and Jorja from Room 4 were the McDonalds Young DJs on the local radio this morning. They unwrapped The Press in record time to win books for our library and then they could name 10 countries in 10 seconds to win a magazine pack for the staff. Then it was off to McDonalds for breakfast after a hard morning's work. Well done guys!
We're waiting for the cross country to begin.
On Wednesday 13th May we had our cross country . Here are the people who were the best trainers. Riley from Room 1 is the first one in the photo.

Yesterday I did the cross country after lunch. We walked to Argyle Park to do it. I came 6th.
