Ninja the Turtle.

One of our students, Tydre, got a turtle for his birthday!  He has named it Ninja (after the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).  Ninja came to visit us yesterday in the classroom.  He is still very small - he has tiny feet, tiny claws, a tiny head and tiny eyes.  Oh, and a tiny tail!  Jessie said the turtle might still be alive when Tydre is an old man!

Drop! Cover! Hold!

On Thursday at 9.15am lots of people in our country stopped what they were doing and pretended there was an earthquake.  Our school participated too.  We had to practise what we would do if there was a real earthquake.
At 9.15am our class was in the orchard and we all curled up under the benches and remembered to cover our heads to protect our brain!  It was fun to practise but in a real earthquake we think it would be quite scary.
Ms Langdon said she has been in a big earthquake so she knows how important it is to know what to do when the ground starts shaking.  She doesn't like earthquakes one bit!

Cricket - Room 15 vs Room 16

Two men came from Hamilton Cricket to help us learn some cricket skills.  There are some very keen cricket players in our class!
We had fun playing a game against Room 16.
