After our breakfast program and Josh’s drumming lesson in the morning, we walked around collecting plastic lids to create mosaics and lamp shades. 

As we arrived to our learning space shelter we saw that a boring fence had been adorned with 93 beautiful colourful flowers, thanks to Wendy’s plastic flower ninja crew!

Thanks to all the students in the hub school who helped collect, cut and paint the bottles.  We appreciate the effort and see the flowers as a sign that the students at Buthan school are like bees; sometimes they fly between the hub school and Buthan school.

Kind Regards,

Emanuel. 

 

Flower Ninjas!

Standard

Yesterday Mobile School and Williams 1 were collecting the bottles. Then our class were cutting them and making flowers. Lastly, Western 6 was painting them. There were 93 altogether!

Today, 4 kids were going to Mobile School and putting them on the fence. We didn’t tell the mobile school. We were like flower ninjas! Later, the mobile school kids were feeling happy to see them.

On the way home, we picked up all the rubbish at the shop and showed the adults how to use the recycling cage!

It was fun and everyone was happy.

Good Black Soil

Standard

Everyday, 5 kids from Josh’s class go to Wendy’s class and we help the little kids with blogging, writing stories, reading, maths games and learning new words.

But today, we did gardening! We went today because it has been raining a lot and the soil is wet so the weeds are easy to pull out.

We filled up the pots so that kids can take new plants home. We got the black soil from the chook house because its good soil and full of worms.

Next time, we will plant sunflowers, bananas and mulberries in the pots.

It was lovely to work with the little kids, everyone was working together as a team and the weather was nice and cool.
