Ko te rā Tuakana/Teina: Tā mātou hikoi ki te awa (Tuakana/Teina Day - Our walk to the creek!)


Yesterday we buddied up with Room 1 for an afternoon of Tuakana/Teina learning.  We walked to our very local creek and made some beginning observations as part of our inquiry into Te Taiao o Tāmaki (the environment of Tāmaki).  We noticed many interesting things:

  • That the heavy rain from the day before had brushed the grass forward like hair.
  • The the water level - which raised suddenly, from the rain and then dropped again, left behind a lot of rubbish - which comes from us!
  • That the grate at the end of the creek, before the ocean was blocked and covered with grass, branches and mud.
  • That the nearest river - Tāmaki River - which leads to the Waitematā is connected to our drain pipes!
We enjoyed getting outside and sitting and observing the water.  We can't wait to get back and to put our inquiry into action!
