Kowhai Trees

We are holding the Kowhai trees because they are ready to plant.

First we dig a hole with the spade. 
Then we put our Kowhai tree into the hole gently.

Dugan helped us dig the holes and find a place to plant our trees.
We can't wait to see them grow into big trees.
We hope that the tuis will come and visit them.

Cross Country

Today we had the Cross Country on Putikitiki. We ran fast around the field. We had a lot of fun. We feel really proud of ourselves because we ran fast.
Year 0 Girls

Year 1 Boys                        Year 1 Girls
This afternoon we watched the big kids run past the gate. We loved cheering for them.

We felt happy running in the Cross Country today.
Thank you to our Mums, Dads, Grandmas, Poppas, Aunties and our families who came to watch us and for helping us getting ready for the Cross Country at home.

Letters for my Rafiki

Room 5 liked making the girls at Rafiki Mwema feel happy. 

We think that other classes might like to post stickers and letters to Rafiki Mwema too. Getting stickers in the mail is a nice surprise. Sending stickers is easy because they fit in an envelope and they are not very expensive to buy or send.

This is the address to send them to - 
Rafiki Mwema
P O Box 4298
East Africa

Room 5 would like to know if you do decide to get involved as we would love to know that we are sharing happiness.
If you would like to know more information please contact Anna. Her email address is on the left hand side of our blog or you can contact Rafiki Mwema.
If you use social media post a photo of your letter and stickers with #lettersformyrafiki

Room 5 Seed Shop

Room 5 has a seed shop. You can buy seeds to grow in your garden. We have given every family at our school a notice with the seeds that they can buy from our shop. 
We are getting our seeds from Kings Seeds

Look at what the seeds can grow into....
Organic Pea Progress
Sunflower Golden Toasted
Organic Zucchini Black Beauty

We will use the money we fundraise to help our friends at Rafiki Mwema in Kenya and we might even buy things for our school and Kitchen Garden.
If you need a new notice or would like to know more come and see us in Room 5.

Rafiki Mwema

Room 5 has some exciting news all the way from Kenya.
Our stickers and letters arrived at Rafiki Mwema.

We helped to make them feel happy. And now we feel happy and great!

We looked at the Rafiki Mwema website and saw lots of happy faces.
Room 5 is thinking about what we can do to help them next. Maybe we will send them more stickers. We are also thinking about how we can fundraise more money for them.

Our school has lots of areas where we can play.
When Anna was on duty she took some photos of us playing.
At lunchtime we like to play on middle flat.
There are monkey bars and things to climb.

We like to play with our friends.
