Last week on Thursday night vardon school had their speech final were the middle and senior finalist said their speeches to two special judges Mr Gunn (Mrs Gunn's husband) and Mrs Roskam (Who used to teach at this school but went of to have her baby). All the finalist did very well but there had to be a winner. The winner for the middle syndicate was Tyana in room 8( Amelia's sister) and for the senior syndicate there was a tie between Fergus in room 12 and Oliver M in room 15. The people that got in from our class was Amelia who did her speech on Mother Teresa and Joshua who did his speech on Tuataras.

In Room 14 We had some non-human visitors, they were Shelby's bunnies!There were two, Captain Carrots, and Bisket. Their breed is Mini Lops, and they love to eat apples,carrots,parsley,spinach, grass, hay and lettuce. Captain Carrots is the black and white bunny and Bisket is the black bunny.Sometimes when they are in the corner of the inside bit of their hutch they sit on each other, just not all the time though . Captain Carrots and Bisket loves running around our big blow up pool. They also like running in a straight line in between our herbs garden and little trees (the little trees are about 8 inches tall)We all find it very amusing when they run around(we should call them both Usain Bolt)They love running around as much as they like to nibble on things because they don't really like being cooped in a small area. Here are some photos of these cute little Bunnies.

Last term in room 14 we had had cross country, we had a little treasure chest that we glued into our L.L (learning logs) it had gems on it, that we would colour in if we had fruit to eat. Mrs Gunn said 'if the whole class coloured in all of their jewels then we'll get a special treat.' Only the year sixes new what the special treat was. So eventually the whole class coloured in all of their gems, it was finally time for the year 5's to find out the special surprise, Fruit kebabs!!!!!!!!!!!(a healthy treat, for a healthy achievement) On Friday we brought our fruit, laid out mats, and got into our groups ready to put our fruit onto our kebabs, at the end we got another yummy treat, chocolate syrup and Marshmallows.(our teacher is so cool) Lets hope Mrs Gunn does this again next year : )
