The Amazing Race

To celebrate learning together for a whole year we went to the Hamilton Gardens to have an amazing race.
In each garden there were tasks we needed to complete before we went to the next garden. Sometimes we needed to look carefully for something in the gardens, or we had to take a class photo. We had some great parents and families come along to help us. Lucky they had good gardening knowledge so they could give us some good hints when we got stuck!
Here are some of the photos from our Amazing Race.
 Amphitheatre in the Italian Gardens             Kitchen Garden
 English Garden                                       Indian Garden
     Chinese Garden                             Egyptian Statues

Afterwards we were tired and hungry! Luckily we got to have a shared lunch back at school. Because we have been learning about lunch Around the World lots of the students shared food from their cultures. Room 14 loved trying all of the delicious food and flavours.
Dumplings, muffins, brownies                                     Spring rolls, cupcakes
Cupcakes, cake, croissants, sandwiches, strawberries, chicken, popcorn

Curry and roti     Strawberries, grapes, blueberries, Maple Syrup dip

Then....we had a sports afternoon on Putikitiki with all of Totara Team.
