Gardening with Mr.Vogt

The children in Rm 18 had a wonderful time at Makerspace with Mr. Vogt. They went gardening actually not really gardening. They went around the Team 1 bays and pulled out some dried up swan plants and turning the soil, getting it ready to plant more swan plants, maybe some flowers, some children thought it would be great to plant watermelon. It's going to be very hard for Mr. Vogt to decide what will go in the gardens. Watch the space because Rm 18 will be going to Makerspace next week. I wonder what surprises Mr.Vogt has in store for them. By Mrs. Lal.

Mr. Vogt showed the children how to
Karate chop the dry swam plant.

Imogen helped put it in the yellow bin.

Isla helped carry the garden tools needed for turning the soil.

Levi and Jordan are trying to break the plant into tiny bits.
They worked in a team.

Winter is trying to pull it out from the ground.
It was hard because the swan plant was dry and prickly.

Winter broke a branch.
Catherine is happy, she can break some branches off and not get hurt.
Wow, Salesi
That's a big one!
These guys are happy  with their find and are done for the day.

Mia, ShweShwe and Nadi are turning the soil.
It was very dry and they had to be careful not to get it into someone's eyes.

Sione is ready to get his hands dirty!

Milk in schools

We get milk every Tuesday and Thursday. The children in Room 18 are really good at drinking it dry, folding it flat and sending it back. When it goes back the milk containers goes into this big machine and then gets made into tiles for our houses.
We love drinking milk.(Dictated to the teacher.)
