Tane Mahuta Day

Room 15 made a fantastic movie about Tane Mahuta.

Our class (Room 15) learnt about the giant Kauri tree called Tane Mahuta.  It is very old but we don't know exactly how old it is.  Tane Mahuta is somewhere between 1,250 and 2,500 years old!!!!  It lives up north in the Waipoua forest.
We did some measuring to see how long Tane Mahuta would be if it was lying along the ground.
Here is a video showing what we found out.

Room 6 visits Putikitiki

We went to Putikitiki to sketch the cabbage trees and after we had finished we explored the putikitiki playground. There were lots of things we could do.
