Five Little Seeds

Five little seeds,
Five little seeds.
Three will make flowers,
And two will make weeds.
Under the leaves,And under the snow,Five little seeds areWaiting to grow.Out comes the sun,Down comes a shower.And up come the three,Pretty pink flowers.Out comes the sun,That every plant needs,And up come two,Funny old weeds.


Counting in 5's song

Trip to botanical garden

On Wednesday 25th February, Tupulaga went to visit the botanical gardens.  We were able to go to the self taught vegetable garden, and then over to Caroline for the Plant Adaptations lessons.  She told us about the Kereru tree - how the birds eat the seeds, then they poop out the seeds which are scattered around the area.  She told us that these seeds grow into plants and then into big trees with more fruit.  It was a full on day, and we enjoyed ourselves.  Thanks to our parent helper Annie Betham and her daughter Zaylahnie for helping us on our trip.

Team Building for "LOTO TELE"

Each Friday the Tupulaga unit works together to do team building activities where they mix the junior and senior classes together.  Today they worked on a photo challenge with 10 different tasks.  It was great for the team to co-operate, and show each other ways to work together for a common goal.  Well done to all teams for the fantastic work today!
