the weekly catch up 12

Welcome back to terrific term 4! The blogger loggers for this week are Emma and Emily. This   Monday we arranged our desks to look like Parliament, with the front benches and backbenches.Mr Williams says he's the Prime Minister! Most of us think it's lots of fun for a change.

Yesterday we went to the hall to see the Kids can cook seminar, with the amazing Emily as the sous chef. The chef demonstrated how to hold your fingers in the crab position when you are cutting something with a sharp knife, he also talked to us about gluten [the sticky stuff that holds your food together] and gelatin [ the stuff in your milkshakes that comes of cows back skin and their feet].  A big thanks to Mrs Bateman  and Mr Williams for letting her be the sous chef she loved it.

The big day is coming up and by that I mean Athletics and by the big day I mean the 30th! Room 24 has been practicing hard out every Tuesday and Friday. We can't wait until the big day!

We have finished our new book Somuch2do we all loved the book, but the next book might be from a different author. We are so excited to read the next book!

 We have started two new maths topics fractions and decimals. We are in groups the floorers the smurfs and the elders. To determine who is in what group we did a test a very hard test. Mr Williams thought that most of us would get in the high 20s low 30s mark [by the way there were 57 questions in the test] but most of us got in the high 40s and even low 50s! The highest mark in the test was made by Teariki and Byrdie with both of them getting 56 out 57!

Now on to my favorite thing food for thought [our topic for this term] It is all about healthy eating and environmental health. Next Monday a lady from the supermarket is coming round to St Albans and talking  to us about healthy eating and our trip to the New World supermarket and a lot more. 

Continuing with the food for thought  theme, every school day Mr Williams makes us get out our lunchbox before morning tea and write down how many processed foods and  natural foods we have, as well as packaged and for next week, a sandwich survey!

Now completely changing the subject to summer sport trials! We have already had all the trials for touch, softball and cricket and the teams will be announced next week!

Thanks for reading the weekly catch up 12! And now for some photos.
