Incredibox and Lyrics
This term we have had Sam working with us on our music. We go in two groups so while one group has been with Sam the rest of us have been working in groups to create a piece of music and so lyrics. The lyrics needed to be about encouraging people to be kind. While we can't post our music the photo shows some of the completed lyrics so far. You can try out incedibox yourself for free using the link.

Richie Patterson - Olympian Ambassador

Olympian Visits our school...
Richie Patterson is really determined. The Olympic values are respect, friendship and excellence. In 23 years of weight lifting he earnt a gold medal and a silver medal. He wrote down what he wanted to achieve and his mentor made him shout it out so that he would believe in himself. He failed many times but learnt from his mistakes. He tried a lot of different sports to see what he liked. He doesn't think of excellence as winning the gold medal but rather what it took for him to win the gold medal. He has lifted 195 kgs! He almost lifted 200kgs, he got it over his head but it fell back. He worked really hard to achieve his goals. He grew p on a diary farm. He told us to put our hands behind our backs and look up when we are feeling sad. The first thing you learn in weightlifting is how to do it safely.
