Mighty Beanz and a Lego man. Mighty Beanz have a track
to play on. My friend Bradley has one. The Lego man is my
favourite one because he has a fire-fighter’s uniform and a building hat
and the best thing is it is red. Hamster Bean is so cute. My good one
is Nerd Bean because snot is coming out of its nose. Buff Bean
likes to exercise in the middle of nowhere! And Ally cat is vicious like
any other cat.
P.S. The pictures are blurry because the lens of my phone is dirty.
It used to be my dad’s phone and it is old. He gave it to me
because he got a new phone and it is way smaller. My phone is a
Nokia E65-1. It is a slide phone.

tape, kitchen roll and PVA glue. Here are a few to give you a
better idea about how they are made. More to come soon…

A plesiosaur is a member of the sea reptile family and the name
Plesiosaurs means “close to lizard”. A plesiosaur is not a
dinosaur. Instead it’s a sea reptile.
A plesiosaur has 2 front flippers, 2 back flippers, a short tail, sharp pointy teeth and a very long neck.
They were mostly found in Europe and probably lived about 200 million
years ago. Plesiosaurs are found in shallow seas and even freshwater
They are very fast and they had curved teeth useful for catching
fish, but not for chewing or crushing. It’s also likely that they caught
and ate the squid-like creatures that existed at the time. Some
plesiosaur fossils have stones preserved in the stomach area, showing
that they swallowed stones (called gastroliths) to grind up food in
They were able to dive down, but they fed near the surface and had no
need to go deep. Being reptiles they had to breathe air, so there would
have to be good reason for them to leave the surface for a very long
Right now there are no more because they are extinct.

Today we had a Skype video call with Winton School near Invercargill.
Room 4’s school have started wearing sunhats and wanted to know what
we did with ours to stop people from losing them. We said that all
our hats are named. Room 4 couldn’t add names to their hats
because they belong to the school and are part of the school uniform.
They can’t write on the hats or do anything that might mark them.
We’re having a big think about what to do and will call them back later in the week.
We’d also like to connect with other classrooms around the world.
Drop us an email or leave a comment if you’re interested.
