Opt In Art

The children who opted into doing the 'Terrific Turtle' Art were busy working on these in the Art Space on Friday morning.  Their finished work looks amazing and will be up on the wall in Piako Rua in the next couple of days. Well done to our budding artists!!

Learning with Magnets

Today we had a good play around with magnets for our science opt in sessions. We loved it and we thought we would share one of the facts we found out about magnets: 
- Did you know some animals are affected by magnets. We found out that birds and butterflies migrate according to the earths magnetic pull. 

We still have some learning to do as we loved finding out which other animals are affected. So far: Sharks, Dogs, Bats, Birds and Butterflies. What next!?
