Sam's Plan

Yesterday Sam made an amazing vaccuum with the mobilo. She thought you could use this amazing vaccuum to suck up rats. Sam thought it would be great to use the rats and make them into reusable fuel. 

Take a look at the movie of Sam explaining her amazing idea -

We went on a walk around our school and we were very lucky to see a tui up close. It is pretty hard to see the tui in our photos. We couldn't believe it when it flew into the tree above us.

We don't think you'll  be able to to see the tui in this movie but you can hear it sing. 
We love listening to the tui.

Room 5 looks very happy in this photo. That's because we are getting ready to send stickers and letters to Rafiki Mwema in Kenya. We know how much the girls love getting stickers and mail so we hope that our mail will make them happy. 

We walked across the crossing to the post box so we can send our letters to Kenya.

Stickers for Rafiki Mwema

These children from Room 5 bought some stickers to send to the girls at Rafiki Mwema.


We wrote messages for the girls. We shared things we like to do at school and things we like to do with our families. We also shared photos of us in different places around our school.

Tree Planting

Hamilton East School is really good at recycling. We got rewarded for our great recycling by Paper for Trees who gave us 12 trees for our school. Our trees came from Bruntwood Nurseries.
Room 5 helped to plant some of them today.

We planted 2 lemon trees, 2 feijoa trees and 2 lime trees.
When they have grown bigger we will be able to eat the fruit that they grow. We might even be able to do baking with the fruit.

We will have to look after the plants by watering and fertilising them.

Do not open this book!

Room 5 loved a book Anna read us called "Do not open this book".
We even wrote our own stories about it.
Click on the photo to read our book only if you feel brave.

Don't forget if you're scared you can close the book.
If you aren't scared keeping turning the pages.
