Wheelathon

A big thank-you to the PTA for a fun Wheelathon today. We rode bikes, scooters or a skateboard. 
For lunch there was pizza and ice blocks. At morning tea we watched the Skate School demonstration. It was amazing!! Here are some photos of the fabulous Room 24 and the skate School demonstration. 


 








Finding out about fungi with Team Wha

This term Team Wha are finding out all about fungi.  In our first lesson, we brainstormed our prior knowledge, researched and questioned. Lastly we went on a  hunt around the school to observe our local fungi.

Here's some we found:







Next week we'll idenyify our finds and learn out more about how to group the fungi kingdom.

Citizen Science - The Garden Bird Survey - Will your family take part too?

This week we're prepping our bird knowledge, so we can take part in the Landcare Manaaki Whenua Garden Bird Survey.

We'll be collecting data on our local bird life and sending it off to scientists. Did you know the number of birds is an indicator of the health of the environment?

Families can take part in the surveys too. It's fun and easy. Visit https://www.landcareresearch.co.nz/science/plants-animals-fungi/animals/birds/garden-bird-surveys
