Museum Trip!

 On Wednesday 11th of August we were lucky enough to go on a school trip to the Auckland Museum! We are learning about Maori history. We learnt lost while we were at the museum. 

Here is Tyson's recount of our museum trip:

On Wednesday 11th of August the Kae team went on a trip to the Auckland museum. Before we went to the museum, we watched a video of keeping Auckland museum clean. After the video everyone, strolled to the buses outside our school. After we got into our groups we were put into. Next everybody was singing wheels on the bus, it was irritating I fell asleep. When we got there it looked like a mayor's house it look fancy. When everybody arrived at the Auckland museum, we all thought we were meeting Donald Trumps house. But then when we walked around the Auckland museum, it looked way more better than before. It was astounding when we walked in, actually TREMENDOUS!!! I wanted to run everywhere, but then I remember the one word they said DON'T RUN!!! So I strolled around  and found a big meeting place. We had to take off our shoes. When we went inside it was curved inside and outside, little longer later we had kai fist we said our prayer and ate. Finally after 5 hours we got on the bus and went back to school.

We had the best time!!

We learnt so many interesting facts about ANZAC day and read some really great stories explaining about the war.
We learnt that we celebrate ANZAC day on the 25th of April.
We learnt that we wear poppies to remember the soldiers that lost their lives at war.
We also learnt how to make ANZAC cookies.

The cookies were delicious, well done room 8 :)

D- o our part as new zealanders during the summertime, and be kind, then we will all be 
O-kay, I really miss my friends and my teacher, so
