Arbor Day on 5 June


Today two children from each class got to walk down to Trentham Memorial Park to plant trees for Arbor Day. 
Blake and Mikayla represented Room 17. They had an early lunch before they left at 12.30pm.


   They came back excited and full of stories! The holes had already been dug when they got 
    there. They had to take off the black plastic bags around the roots before putting the plants into
    each hole. Then they filled up the holes with dirt and stamped it down with their gumboots.    

    Mikayla planted ten trees and Blake planted eleven trees. Altogether that makes ...?

    "It was really good" said Mikayla. 
    "It was fun!" Blake said.


    Can you see the mud on their hands before they washed them?!
