The Tarantula Warriors are preparing the ground for planting. They are weeding so they could plant. They are growing purple and green climbing beans. Their favourite part of the activitiy is getting their hands dirty and they like it. They think that the easy part is putting the seed in the ground. The hard part is pulling weeds out with the roots on. Written by Lampstand and Kenan 3F

This week in gardening class the Grade 1s started learning about minibeasts that we might find in the school garden. We started off by reading a fun book called 'Some Bugs' by Angela DiTerlizzi (Author) and Brendan Wenzel (Illustrator), before we had a talk about snails. Mrs McGregor drew a picture of a snail on the board and we learned what the different body parts are called and what snails use them for. Did you know that a snail has eyeballs on the end of it's long tentacles, and their ribbon-like tongue is covered with thousands of tiny teeth? We then went on a snail hunt in the garden, looking under leaves and in dark damp places where snails might be hiding. After we collected some snails we got a chance to get a good close up look at them which was fascinating!
