The Marshmallow Olympics

Today for Golden time we had a really fun time. We did the marshmallow Olympics. In this game you have a marshmallow tied to a piece of string. Then you had to try to eat the string to the marshmallow. You wouldn't swallow the string though.

The poetry finalists

"Oh I'm so exited!" I think that the finalists are really nervous. Today is the poetry finals and there are four people from every class that get chosen. The judge was Miss Keen. From our class Mr James chose Layton, Alex, Kapua, and Molly.

I can't believe that Kapau came first. She really deserved it!

Cookies cookies cookies

Today we made yummy cookies. They had lots of chocolate drops in them and they melted in the oven. We made cookies for something fun to do for Mary Mackillop day. You had to make a shape with something to do with her. Some of the options were a cross, an M, Some people even tried to make her! I made a cross. I really enjoyed doing this and I think it was a great idea. I think Miss White liked it too.

Today some special visitors came to teach us about Jamaica.
There flag is black, green and gold. There is a river in Jamaica that is called the black river and it is the longest in Jamaica. It's called the black river because of the black dirt on the bottom and it's so strong that people can see it from the top. They greet each other by saying Hullomun. There famous singer is Bob Marley.

Reading work

Today for reading I answered some questions on a card, that was telling me about a boy who lived at a island and he went to a city where his cousin lived. While he was there he went to a place around the huge city where he could see what it's like to live there.
My walht was to ask questions before, during and after reading.

The St.Mary's recycling bin.

This is the St Mary's recycling bin.
We just got it in term 3 from Jason.The school gets given $50 for each ton of paper we give.
Not much paper is in it because we just got it and not much people have paper because they chuck it out. We want heaps of paper so we get money for the school to get new things.
We are not allowed to bring tissues or handy towels because of the germs.
We also hope we get heaps of paper because we're saving the environment.      (via I-pad)
