Some children need to decide whether or not to stay overnight at the library. Would you want to stay and play the game 'Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library'?

We joined our buddy class to celebrate Cook Island Language Week. We enjoyed teaching them about a tivaevae, a traditional Cook Island quilt. Then we created a paper tivaevae. We enjoyed teaching and making these with Room 6.

We have met some great, and interesting characters in the book 'Escape from Mr Lemoncello's Library. Who is your favourite character and why?
My favourite character is Mr Lemoncello himself. He wears these crazy costumes, like his bright yellow banana boat shoes and they make noises as he walks. Room 24 thought it was hilarious when his shoes made the tune 'Pop Goes the Weasel'. He is a very unique and eccentric character!

Today Kauri team were invited to the New Zealand International Film Festival. We watched 14 short films at the Auckland Civic Center Theatre. There were many that we really enjoyed but here are top three films:
We enjoyed this film because it was quite funny how his ice-cream kept on melting before he could eat it. It was extremely hilarious when he fell asleep the last time.
This was a great film. It had a great message about waiting and being patient. The things you really want will come. It will take time. Like with the tadpole. He didn't get his legs at the same time as everyone else, but he was patient and got his legs in the end.
This film was just hilarious. All children really enjoyed laughing at this one.
