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.

We Love Frogs

Standard

  This morning, lots of kids were holding little green frogs. It has been raining a lot so there are so many green frogs!

But it is bad to hold the green frogs because they will die if they get dry or too scared.

So we made posters to remind everybody to love our frogs. Frogs live in nice clean gardens. They eat insects and help our plants, and they are an important part of a food chain.

These boys from our Tigers class have been helping us with feeding the chickens and looking after them. We have been teaching them how to look after chickens and do that job.  The boys are Merril and Elijah and helping us are Israel, Johnson and Simon.

Simon says “I like working with the chickens and getting eggs and getting treats from Wendy.  We get the keys from Tony and go to the garden.  Garden is beautiful we got lots of rain so it is green.  Goodbye.”

Johnson says ” We been getting the eggs.  Sometimes in the box and sometimes we got to look under the bushes.  We got to clean the chicken house with shovel and put the poo in the compost. We want to get more chickens for more eggs.”

Israel says “Looking after chooks is fun.  I like going out of class and doing jobs. We are Tigers class and we got respect for the garden.  Wendy take us down there when we are in Year 6.  We want more jobs around school like cutting grass, plant bananas, and spread the chicken poo around the school to make plants grow. Thats all.”
