Madisyn’s eyes are blue and her hair is blond. She likes dogs and puppies. Madisyn goes to Stonefields School. She wears a uniform for school so that she does not get confused about what to wear. The uniform will keep children warm. It is very, very good to wear when it rains. Madisyn is a girl.

We were privileged to get to learn some of the words today and it was very inspirational. My favourite lyric was about "blood, sweat and tears" because to me that shows the determination required to become an Olympic athlete. So the next time we have to run around the field, we will know what real determination feels like!
Thanks so much to Sam coming in to share this fantastic example of breakthrough learning in the real world with us! If you'd like to hear Sam's song and vote for it, log in to facebook (if you're old enough) or get an adult to log in and vote!

A garden is a place we put all our plants and seeds.
Gardens are special to other people. In Japan some people go to the Japanese gardens to think. Some gardens can also have vegetables and some gardens just look pretty.
Gardens are made out of seeds and rain and soil. There are all sorts of gardens. There are ones at school, home and even on mountains.
A garden is a place where plants live. To make a garden, dig a hole in the dirt and then put seeds in the hole in the dirt. After that, water it in the holes and then let the garden grow. If it is watered it will grow faster.
Gardens are special because they can remind people of special places they have been to.

On Sunday, a group of learners from LH2 went to top town at Glover Park. They had lots of fun doing all sorts of crazy activities, and were given certificates and prizes at the end! Thanks so much to the parents who helped make this possible. Check out the awesome photos!
