Some photos from our fantastic day out at Ferrymead Historic Park.  What a wonderful experience dressing up and experiencing daily life and school as it was one hundred years ago.

Writing with pen and ink requires alot of concentration.
We have been continuing to explore poetry styles and using the structure of a published poem to create our own imaginative writing.

On Friday we dressed up as Super heroes to raise funds for Kids Can.  We all looked great and enjoyed the parade with our buddy class.  Indiana won best costume in the whole school.  She was Lightning Girl and her costume was cleverly sewn by her mum!  Molly (Good Girl) and Larissa (Incredibles girl) won best costume in Room 18. Miss MacKenzie had a difficult job choosing because everyone had made such a fantastic effort to dress up.

We are 2 weeks into our six lessons at Olympia Gym and room 18 are really enjoying the challenges the activities are providing us.  The trampoline seems to be especially popular, and the bars offer the greatest test of abdominal strength.  We have even discovered there are several talented gymnasts among us!
