We had a visit from the chickens!

We were very lucky to have a visit from Mrs Johns and her new chick (and adopted mother hen). Taimalie told us about the life cylcle of a chick and some interesting facts about how they hatch and get raised.
Check out the photos and videos!

School Kit writing activity

Here is the awesome Rm23 with their letters that they are hoping to get to their chosen New Zealander who has made a difference. 
Here's the catch - they can't just send it to them or give it to them personally. They have to get it to them by passing it through peoples hand only (unless they are in another country/island and then another person can mail it to another person - not the actula person, Phew!)

We are testing the theory of 3 degrees of seperation where everyone is connected in some way within 3 people e.g my neighbour has a hairdresser who is friends with Nadia Lim's cousin so I am 3 degrees of seperation away from Nadia Lim!

We are passing the letters on today and we hope to get some responses before the end of the school year (the letters ask the person to email a picture of them holding the letter to the students email).

Out of 27 students we are estimating we might ger 6 responses. Watch this space!
