Pukeiti Visit

When we arrived at Pukeiti we had morning tea.

On Friday 13th May Room 5 visited Pukeiti.  We had an amazing time.  Here are some of our pictures showing some of the experiences we had there.

We looked at a whole lot of different creepy crawlies and talked to each other about them.  e.g How many legs the creepy crawlies had.

We had a stick insect competition to see who could hold the same pose for the longest time.  Guess who won?  Ask someone from Room 5 and see if they can tell you. 

We went on a creepy crawlie hunt and used some traps to find them in the bush.  We tipped the dirt from the trap into a container so we could observe closely what creepy crawlies were there.

 Ask someone from Room 5 if they can tell what the name of this tree is.  We saw lots at Pukeiti and have even found some in our own bush.

The children were all very brave and went inside the giant rata tree and through a tunnel.  Check their blog to see their picture.

We even got to dig out a baby plant (seedling) and plant it into our own pot to take home.

A huge thank you to Kevin Archer and Pukeiti for showing us around and for giving us such an amazing experience.  Thank you to all the parents that took cars and helped out with groups at Pukeiti.  A great day had by all!!!
