In the weekend I was really sick. I had to keep warm in my bed. Mum helped me keep warm but I kept coughing. Mum had to give me a Strepsil. I had a really big cough. It hurt my throat. Mum said "We ahve to drop off the girls." Then we went to the Telecom shop. We went to the $2 shop. I got a diary. Phoebe got a crown.
In the weekend. Dad Mum Jesse Taine and I went to the wave pool. Dad and I found a ball. Dad helped me practice doing my headers in the wave pool then we went home. I watched TV.

Today Brayden was experimenting with the wires and batteries and was really excited when he got the light to switch on and off with a switch.

Room 4 went to the Museum and McMillians Pottery. At McMillians we had lunch. After lunch we played tag and we saw a pig sleeping behind the fence. I touched the pig and loved it. We used clay and I made a basket. Then Mr McMillian showed us the wheel and the kilns.

Clayton did an experiment at home then he brought the things to school to share it with the class.

Clayton and Josh and Sebastian piled some sand up in the sandpit like a volcanoe.

Then they put a small container in the top of the pile. Clayton put some baking soda in the container. Sebastian put some green colouring in. Then Clayton tipped some vinegar in.

The mixture started to bubble and froth. It came up over the sides of the container and flowed down the sides of the volcanoe.

Why did it do this?

Gloop! Gloop! Gloop!

What fun we had today with our buddy class. We went up to Room 9 and made gloop. We put it inside balloons. It was very, very, messy. It was hard to get the gloop in the balloon. We all had very messy hands so didn't take many photos.
Here is the recipe if you want to try making Gloop at home.
You will need:
1 cup PVA glue
1/4 cup cold water
a few drops of food colouring or dye
1 tablespoon soap flakes
1/2 cup boiling water

Mix the cold water with the glue and food colouring in a bowl.
Melt the soap flakes in the boiling water in another bowl.
Pour the soapy liquid into the glue mixture and stir.
Have fun!

Sebastian's Holiday

On Thursday I went to Kaiteriteri with my whole family. We played mini golf. After that we played in the rock pools.
I found a starfish. After that went to get lunch. For lunch we had fish and chips.

Last weekend I went to the flat track. My Dad thought that my motorbike wasn't going all that well but it was just warming up. When I got on my motorbike I saw Jakey. He got his motorbike off the track.

Connor's New House

On Friday I went to Anna and Poppy's to stay one night. Then Anna took us to the new house. I went into my bed room. My beds were up. My bedroom is the biggest. We have a big lawn. We have got five chickens and one dog and fish.

I like playing with Bruce's dogs. Bruce's helper said "Do you want to come on the farm?" Bruce has a tractor and two motorbikes and they have a hay shed. I always go down there every day and I see Bruce's helper every day when I get home from school.

I found this fun thing to do on Miss K's site. Try it for yourself Mini-mizer.
Don't you think I look cool??

In the holidays I went to the beach on Friday. Liam and Mum and Dad and I went. We
found a pointy thing. I ran and ran along the beach.
