Cyber bullying.

Today the middle and senior school went to see a show acting out cyber bullying. We learned lots of things that we're not meant to do on the Internet. Like going on websites for adults or seeing bad language. Another thing we learned about was that when your texting people might say things that you might think of in a different way. So if someone texted you and gave you a nickname you might take it seriously.

Caleb the pirate

Today for art we drew pictures with Miss White, First we had to draw a picture of someone holding something from memory, like carrying my birth certificate. Next we got to draw Caleb he was dressed as a pirate we thought that, that was easier because we could see what we were drawing in front of us.
Today we had a special visit from Eliotte's cousin Fiona bourke who told us lots about rowing, she was even in the Olympics rowing with her team and there the team that broke their oar. Fiona was disappointed that her team placed 7th but after a while they didn't think it was so bad because they are 7th best in the world. . Fiona started rowing in 2008. Fiona was very lucky to meet lots of other famous people and to get into the Olympic's.
We're very proud of Fiona and her teammates.

Go Fiona!!!!!!!

Spring time

On Saturday I went to Alex's house and we fed the very very hungry lambs, my favorite lamb was so small its name was Cutie. The lambs really really loved the powder milk and they were jumping around like tiny kangaroos! I felt happy, excited and I really enjoyed feeding the lambs.

Molly's giant trout battle

On Sunday Mr James witnessed a gigantic battle between Molly and an enormous trout. Molly pulled and pulled, the trout pulled and pulled. In the end Molly's superior strength and cunning battle tactics won out and she pulled ashore what is truly a giant form the deep. Well done Molly, oh and by the way she won the Sinclair cup ahead of her brother.
