Room 4 2010

Hello everyone, it is great to be back posting on our class blog. We have had a very busy Term 1. The weather has been stunning and we have been glad that our school has a lovely pool. We had our swimming sports in February. In Week 6 the Year 6's went to camp for 4 days. We went to Shakespear Lodge which is situated in Shakespear Regional Park on the Whangaparoa peninsula north of Auckland. I will get the students to post some comments and photos.

Room 4 and Room 5 visit Goat Island.

All the Year 5's visited Goat Island on April 3rd. We had to leave VERY early from school but it was worth it. We stopped at Albany and had a yummy breakfast at Burger King before heading on to Goat Island. Room 4 went snorkeling first while Room 5 went up to Seafriends for a lecture and to visit the aquariums. After lunch we swapped over. We also had a look at the rocky shore with Dr Floor Anthoni who told us lots of interesting things about the creatures that live there. We had an incredible experience and lots of children fell asleep in the bus on the way home!!
This is the Bucklands Beach Primary School logo. It is the flower of the Pohutukawa tree which is a large tree that grows in coastal areas. The Maori people say that if the Pohutukawa tree flowers before Christmas then we will get a nice long hot summer.
This last Christmas many Pohutukawa trees were flowering early and we did have a fabulous summer. We like to call it "The Christmas Tree". We have many of these trees growing around our school.
