Week 8 - Coconuts and immunisation!

Coconut investigation...
We were playing Survival Island and no one knew much about coconuts. Mrs Puke brought some coconuts for us to try. We got one coconut per island.We had to open them, drink the juice then open them to get the meat out. We watched some videos on how to climb a coconut tree and how to get the green husk off, We learnt that a coconut is the seed of a fruit called a drupe.

Guest Speaker at Asembly
This week Marion Brown from Raukawa came and spoke to the school about her recent experiences in Christchurch. Raukawa sent some people and equipment down to help  Iwi members caught up in the earthquake. She showed us the water containers and toilets they supplied to people and we looked at photos of what it was like down there.

 We had immunisation injections this week.These protect us from tetnaus, diptheria and the whooping cough.
You look very calm Lorenzo.
