After morning tea today the Year 3s went to our new AstroTurf
. We met three people that were part of Team Energize
, Anton, Sarah and Dane
We went to play some games with Dane. Room 10 was with Sarah and Room 9 was with Anton.
We played games called Blast Off, Connect, Partner Tag and Numbers. We played all those games in about 40 minutes.
We had lots of fun playing games with Dane. At the end we were hot and thirsty.

I got this carrot from my mum’s brother in laws’s dad’s garden. They grew a small pumpkin and peas. My cousin Erin goes there with me. She took me around the house to the garden. She showed me the vegetables and fruit. Then she showed me the carrot. I said we could have it for dinner.

My nana grew a huge zucchini in her garden. My mum said take the giant zucchini to school. It looked so good that I had to eat some. Jorgianah ate some too. You can see the bite marks.

On Friday Glenview School had a Stock Riding Car at school. Mr Fawcett asked me to take some photos. The lady driver asked if I wanted to get in the car. I did. It was fun.

Last year my dad went to Samoa on a plane. Then he got some dollars from a friend. He got four dollars. There are two $1 coins in the photo. Each coin has seven sides. The King of Samoa is on the head side and a shield is on the tailside.

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.

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.

My daughter knows I love everything to do with space and space travel so she sent me a link to this site. You can be a part of space history and send your photo to space aboard the last space shuttle missions. If you want to do it you’ll have to get a parent to help because you have to be over 13 to take part.
If you want to do this at school ask your parent(s) to write me a note giving permission. I’ve already done mine and I can’t wait to get the certificate in November when STS-134 (Endeavour) lands back on earth.
Here’s me at school last year with astronaut Colonel Eric Boe. He was the pilot of the Endeavour in November 2008.

Do you remember the oil spill we were discussing a few weeks ago? Well it’s still leaking. Here’s what it wold look like if it had happened in Hamilton (click the map for a larger view).
Imagine all that oil in the ocean. What effect do you think it will have on the creatures that live and feed there? What about the beaches nearby? How on earth are they going to fix it? Add your thoughts to the comments.
Here’s the website where I found the map.
