Harvest Festival Room 12

On Friday the 30th of March the whole school celebrated our class gardens by harvesting our food and sharing what we made.

Our class grew lettuce, when we went to harvest it we found it had overgrown and gone to seed. We had already planned to make lettuce sandwiches so we had to buy some lettuce to make our sandwiches.

We got to taste food that the other classes made. Some classes made pizza with tomatoes from the garden, Rm 14 made potato chips, Rm 8 and Rm 5 made salsa with tomatoes from the garden. 

It was so neat to see what has been growing in our Hamilton East School gardens.

Looking After our Nature Trail

We went for a walk on our Nature Trail. 
When we got through the gate we could hear so many cicadas and we could even see some cicada shells up high on the trees.
When we walked along the path we were surprised to see lots of rubbish on the top part of the track. Anna told us that some of the Nature Trail helpers had collected a whole lot of rubbish just last week.
Look at all the rubbish we saw.

When we walked back to class we picked up more rubbish from all around the school.
 We want our Nature Trail area to be full of birds, insects and trees. We want everyone to put their rubbish in the right place.
Take a look at our video to help you remember what to do -
