Selwyn’s Secateurs

Standard

DSCN3578

Today, I was cutting the banana trees with big secateurs because some were broken from the wind. Also, one of them had bananas and I chopped them off. Some had yellow leaves and I chopped them off. I was being a good worker. Clayton and Steve were helping me because the trees were big.

The other kids were pulling weeds and feeding the chickens.

After lunch, we went to class and we were reading books. Some of the girls were making banana cake and it smells good! When it is ready we will all eat it.

I am having a good day.

Happy Easter from Ellemor 2

Standard

On Wednesday, we made Hot Cross Buns in our classroom.

DSC05232

Kids had to measure ingredients carefully, knead the dough and be patient while we waited for the dough to rise.

Then they had to think carefully about how to divide the dough into equal 16ths.

The buns were really yummy and worth the effort!

On Thursday, we used natural dyes to make some colourful Easter Eggs. We used fresh eggs from our Garden.

We used tumeric to make yellow, red and brown onions skins to make dark chocolate brown, tea to make light brown and red cabbage to make pink. We added vinegar to the water to help the dye to stick to the eggs.

We put stickers on some, and leaves and flowers on others to make beautiful patterns. We wrapped them in thin material so the dye could still get through. 

           

They looked so great and and by using only natural ingredients, we were still able to eat the eggs after we had enjoyed looking at them!

Later, Easter Bunny visited Ellemor 2 class. All the kids were outside playing at lunchtime, so he snuck in and filled up their Easter Baskets!DSC05308

When everyone came back inside there was a lot of squealing, and everyone was very excited to see their baskets full of chocolate eggs!

DSC05317

Easter Bunny left some extra eggs behind. So all the kids decided to make more baskets, then chose an adult working at the school to deliver some chocolate eggs to. It was a great way to make sure everyone got their Fair Share, and for us to say thankyou to all the teachers, canteen workers, office staff and Assistant Teachers who have helped us out this year in our classroom or the Garden. 

What a great couple of days!

Happy Easter everyone!

Mayawa

Standard

We went for drive in the bus on Friday and we saw a Mayawa (Frill-necked lizard) sitting in the middle of the road.

David Freier was driving the bus and he can catch snakes. David chased the lizard and he caught it. The lizard had a broken foot and a broken tail and maybe a car did run over it so David will look after it.

All the kids were really feeling excited and yelling and we calling David Freier a ranger man.

Elizabeth’s Bananas

Standard

 

I saw bananas at Elizabeth’s house and I go to see the banana’s  looking beautiful. Elizabeth and her family love their garden and they are always sitting outside. All the kids from Elizabeth’s house like to play bat-bat on the sand together.

DSC05259

I got bananas to take home too because it’s rain season so our bananas can grow.

Our teacher Wendy gave us the bananas at home time, she drops them at our house in her car. She is the best teacher in the school and she is the garden teacher too.

She also love to take kids to the garden and feed the chickens every day. She also love the chickens because the chickens lays eggs and make the soil good.
