Today Todd Astle from the Canterbury Kings visited us and held a fun activity session as part of the Kings in School programme. Todd has played for the Black Caps and is a senior member of all 3 Canterbury teams (T20, 50 over and 4 day).

Here are a few photos of us enjoying ourselves.

This is me presenting my dolphin passion project.I love thinking about dolphins, I always have. 
So I made a passion project about them. I looked at different websites and writing about it in my own words. My favourite bit was writing about echolocation which helps the dolphins hunt and find each other underwater. I think dolphins are cute and intelligent. My next passion projects will be Minecraft and wild animals.
