Water Pipe System

Koby's grandad came to show us how water gets from a reservoir down to our bathtub and out the plug hole. We all got to inspect the taps and watch the water. It was really interesting and has helped us to understand how water gets to our house.

JMc's Lizard

JMc found a lizard while we were digging worm fertilizer into our garden. He relocated the lizard into the 'Lizard Garden' that was built by Room 21 last year.

White-tailed spider

This white-tailed spider was in our Bookbag box. We didn't want it in our classroom so Mrs R put it outside in the garden. You can read more information about this spider by clicking on the White-tailed spider link.

Teacher's Mufti Day

Today all the teacher's wore Canterbury colours of red and black and made donations to support the people in Christchurch after the earthquake.

Welcome to the Room 17 Superstars blog. We are going to have lots of fun this year sharing lots of our learning with all our family and friends.

What special things did you do in the holidays? I really enjoyed watching the sunsets on the Amazon river in Peru.
