We have been celebrating the change of seasons with our school Harvest Festival.
Today Fallan and Devonte harvested their own gardens at home and brought some feijoa's and vegetables to share with us for morning tea. We washed and cut the vegetables and enjoyed trying some new foods. We loved the apple cucumbers and feijoas.
Our favourite class song is the Kiwikids song 'The Two Legged Mice'. In the song it sings about rhubarb scones. Mrs McK had some rhubarb in her garden that she harvested and brought to school. We looked closely at the curly leaves and long stalk and drew in our sketching books.
We also found some little slugs, flicker bugs, spiders and aphids too!

Next we washed and took turns cutting up the rhubarb to make rhubarb muffins.

Thanks to all our enviro agents, staff and students,
last year we won a Green-Gold award from Enviro Schools for all the work we do.
On Friday we were presented with our new award in assembly.
They also gave us some plants and a tree as a gift. Wahoo!
