Rock Day



Last week Sam, Coopers Dad came into our class and taught us about Rocks.  It was interesting to 
learn about all the different kinds of Rocks.  All the rocks he bought in came from different parts of New Zealand.  We found out why some rocks are lighter than others like pumice.  He was even kind enough to let us to keep one giant one.
The highlight was building the volcanoes!!!




     
                             We named him Bob the rock









 


    Here Sam is helping us make volcano.

Room 3 enjoyed an early spring day that kept the thoughts of winter away!

 Group 1 composted dry leaves by placing them at the root of the trees!

Group 2 harvested broccoli, herbs, carrots and silver beat!

Group 3 watered the dry plants.

Group 4 did some eye watering weeding.

 Group 5 were planting carrots and group 6 were in the recording group (the group that goes around and writes and draws what the other groups are doing).

So that’s what we did on the sunny Tuesday the 28!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cross Country 2018 Year 0/4


Cross Country 2018

Yesterday some runners from St Martins School Year 0 to 4 walked down to Hillview Christian School. We all had a great time.

There were two particularly good results, which were made by Annie Chilton who got second place in the girls Year 0/1, 700 metres, and Quinn Edmondson who got third place in the Year 3 boys 1000 metres.

After that we had run all the races we went to an awesome prize giving hosted by Hillview with a special guest Angie Petty who has 7 800 metre titles and has competed for New Zealand in both Commonwealth and Olympic Games.  The top 3 runners had their photos taken with her.
Finally, we had a yummy afternoon tea and then walked back to school.
We all had a great time.
