Museum Visit: Permian Monsters!

Wow! Monsters Everywhere!
Kereru Class stepped back in time 290 million years and visited the Permian Monsters exhibition at the museum. We saw some weird and wonderful creatures and discovered how they became extinct. There were fossilised skeletons and full-size animatronic models of the animals that ruled the world millions of years before the dinosaurs! 
See photos below and student comments on the exhibit.
Very creative and educational!

I think it was fun how we got to learn about life before the dinosaurs.

TRYathlon Kids!

Wow! What a great representation of Kereru Class at the Weetbix TRYathlon yesterday!
Congratulations to all of you. You can all be very proud of your effort!

Kereru Star!

Congratulations to Juliet for being our Star of the Week last week. 
Each Monday, teachers choose a student from their class to award the Star of the Week certificate.  It's a tricky decision as we have lots of wonderful students in Kereru. 
Juliet has shown initiative, care and responsibility in her work and as well as that she is willing to help others!  
What a star!
