When Henry introduced Robert Rakete Robert was telling us about his first book. It was called Asterix  And The Golden Sickle. He said that the book he read was his favourite ever since. He told us that he was telling his son to clean his room and his son keeps saying that he will but every time he goes past his sons room he always sees a mess so Robert Rakete cleaned half of it until he saw that book so he read it until his son came from his friends house. When his son came back Robert Rakete was still reading the book and he told his son to clean his room well he reads his sons book on the bed and that's how it became his favourite book.

Moths and Butterflies Trust spokeswoman Jacqui Knight says five Butterflies were seen on the same day, and it's clue to what predators are wiping out the popular insect's numbers.
Now that we found it is in good numbers on great barrier we are thinking it could be rats and wasps.

Game Masters


Today this morning Me, Room 11 went to room 12 for the game theatre. When we got there we sat down waiting for the game master. When they got here they told us about this new game. They never told us the name. When they started to teach us the game they were acting. The names of the characters for the games are T the son,  Dave the dad, Maria the mum, Jack T's friend,Bryan Maria's boyfriend and Rebecca Bryan's daughter. When they acted we had to swipe on our hands for the game to start. After the game they gave us a badge and taught us a new hand shake. It was fun!
