Pukeko Update

Firstly, we'd like to say a big thank you to Maddison (Levi's sister) for allowing us to use her huge collection of bugs. They are all safely encased in glass and are accompanied by a set of magazines.

Having the set of bugs in Pukeko has made for an exciting week. First of all as scientists  we were keen to explore the bugs that Levi had bought in.The children were able to notice and describe many of the different features and some children sorted and classified them into spiders,scorpions, beetles and centipedes. Then as artists we sketched one each and as writers we wrote a description of one of the bugs.

Then everything got a whole lot more exciting when we finally started to find bugs in the playground and bring them into the classroom for further viewing and investigation.

Next week we will continue the exciting life of bugs and see where the learning takes us. We will add to our stories we started this week.

Spring is upon us, so we will start to investigate the change of season and the effects it has on our environment. Searching for new buds, more bugs and blossoms at school. Hopefully the children’s artistic talents will come out as we get sketch paper and pencils to capture the changes we notice.
