We had a really great Junior Lego Competition this week - the library was full to bursting with excited junior children who all wanted to win the title of Junior Lego Champ!  The kids had to build somewhere that they would like to live, and we had some fantastically creative and inventive creations such as a zoo, spy hotel, campervan, stable house, rocketship, pyramids, Frozen-land and lots more!  Gosh, it was noisy in that library!

Anyway, the judges were very impressed with the creations and it was terribly hard to choose just a few when lots of them could've got a prize.  But choose they did, so now we can announce the winners.... another drum roll please!...

1st place - Jack Abbott
2nd place - Adyn Weber
3rd place - Franco Gelid, Annie Nielson-Annett and Grace Erskineshaw
Highly commended - Noah Taylor and Sean Keeling

Junior Lego Champ - Jack 

2nd - Adyn 

3rd - Franco, Annie and Grace

Highly commended - Sean and Noah

Wonderful work, everyone!  I sure hope you've all enjoyed the Lego building competition!

Have you had enough of Lego?  No?  Want more?  OK, you got it!

Watch out for details of a new Lego competition coming in the next few days - and in the meantime, you might like to have a look at some Lego stop-motion movies on YouTube... (pssst... that's a big hint!)

Anyway, take care, kiddliwinks and enjoy your reading this week!

Hello you lovely lot!

Well, we had the second Lego competition today - the Middle School children got to show off their creative skills today in the library, by creating a living creature.  It could be a person or an animal, a monster or an insect or anything else living, whether real or in your imagination...  In the end the children created lots of dangerous dinosaurs, and angry aliens, a delightful deer, several handsome humans, and even a mischievous mosquito!

Anyway, here's the moment you've been waiting for... the winners are....

1st Place and 2016 Lego Champion of Middle School 
Olly Atkinson

2nd Place -  Matthew Lam, Kris Zhang, Daksh Rokadia and Dylan Chikono

 3rd Place - Teuila Schuster and Shekinah Maxwell

Highly Commended - Jett Taylor and Jake Atkinson

Well done everyone!  You're all amazingly creative and enthusiastic!  What a cool lunchtime it was!

And now, I can't wait to see what genius creations the Junior kids can come up with....

Keep Lego-ing, kids, and don't forget to read every day!

Happy reading!
