Electives - Term 3

Building / Carpentry

Each Monday for this term we are going to be learning building skills. We have planned some small projects to build such as a toolbox and a pencil case. We will always have an adult supervising and helping with cutting, measuring etc. Thanks to Mike for offering to help. If anyone else has time between 12.45 and 1.15 on a Monday we would love to see you. We have a toolbox plan at school if you would like to see it.
If you have any spare tools at home eg hammers, measuring tape, saws we would really appreciate them as we are starting to put together a school tool box (Charlotte)

Hydroponics - Term 3

We are going to plant some veges in the glasshouse when it gets warmer. We are currently planning what we can plant. (Stanley)
My group is called the Hydro Rangers and we have a glass house.  We grow plants like strawberries.  I look after the berries.  I look after them by feeding them water and nutrients.  I pull the weeds out.  I pull the dead leaves off.  (Alex).
Hydro Rangers take care of veges.  I cleaned the hydroponic house.  I plant strawberries, I look after strawberries.  I'm going to cut the dead leaves off.  (Sarah).
