Totally Amazing Botanical Gardens Trip

On Friday the 11th of August rooms 15, 16 & 17 went on a school trip to the Botanical Gardens in Manurewa to learn more about our inquiry topic.

The first half of the day was spent with an expert in the classroom before moving out into the gardens. 

We went over what we already knew about trees and plants. 

We had such an amazing time learning about our native trees and animals that help them to survive. 
We took part in a drama activity acting out being different parts of a tree (the heart, sap, bark and insects trying to get into the sap). 



Please stay tuned for our recount writing about our trip coming in week 4.

A huge thank you to our amazing parent helpers! 

THANK YOU!

Congratulations to our Top Kid!

A big congratulations to our Top Kid Ranginui Bold who was chosen for being an exemplary student in all areas of school life. We are super proud to have someone chosen from our class. 



We also started learning about Matariki this week and completed some awesome chalk pastel artwork of the constellation. We practised blending the different colours together. They are now proudly on display in our class. I love how every piece is different!



In maths we completed figure me out posters about ourselves. It was lots of fun trying to come up with new ways to create numbers. 

Remember to book a time for 3-way conferences in week 10 using the code: frnny or call into the office to book a time.
