Welcome to C7's blog 2012
We welcome parents and extended family to our classroopm. We really appreciate any parent help. So far we have two lovely mums, Kylee and June who are giving up their precious time to help out with reading. Remember the more practice the children get, the more confident they become. Thank you to all you terrific parents who are supporting your children with homework. As a teacher I can see the growth with home reinforcement. Keep up the great work.

Our Spring Garden
Ataarangi's daffodil was the first spring bulb in our garden to open. It had a long narrow green stem. The petals were oval shaped. The flower was a bright sunshine yellow with a frilly trumpet in the centre. Ibanez- Rose was very excited to see her red tulip unfolding its cup shaped petals. When we looked inside the flower we could see the black stamens. They looked like a large bumble bee sitting in the middle of the flower. We also planted some vegetables in pots. We planted snow peas, lettuce, beans, tomatoes and beetroot. We hope they will grow well so that we can sample them before the end of the year.
