The Walking Octopus 

In the Northern Australia Rock Pools, there lives a rather unique and intelligent octopus. The species' scientific name is an Abdopus Aculeatus. 

Appearance 
Although this octopus seems very different it looks rather normal. It is a browny reddish colour with 8 long tentacles lined with hundreds of suckers. Its skin is bumpy in the water but when out of the water it appears shiny and smooth. 

Actions 
In order for the octopus to get out of the water, it must use its suckers to grip onto the rocks. Then it has to pull itself up onto the land. Once on the land, it slithers around and slides downhills. It also has to push itself to go back into the water. 

Conclusion 
Although this is an amazing marine animal they are rather rare and you can only find them in Northern
Australia.

St Johns - Emergency Responder Workshop

After morning tea we went to the Hamilton East School hall. We learnt about CPR and how to help people. My favourite part was the burns because the nurse told us that if you get burnt you need to put the burn in cold water. I learnt how to save people's lives. I practised bandaging my partner. It was a lot of fun.

What we did when we all came back!

Early this week we took some time to work through a lesson called The Teaspoon of Light, which was provided for teachers by Te Rito Toi - University of Auckland. This was to help us all think about our world, how it has changed and to help us imagine how it might be better.

Here are some photos of us drawing our dreams on Sarah's temporary cloth of dreams and Sarah asleep under it once we had finished.
