On Wednesday 27 of June we went to Arataki Regional park. First we went on the bendy bus to Arataki. Once we got there we had to scrub our shoes to prevent Kauri dieback.

Then I went along the loop and the nature trail with my group. We had a checklist so we looked for spiders. we had to go deep into the bushes to find a very cute blue spider making a web. It took us 10 minutes to find it but it was worth it.

 In the last block I did a workshop to learn about the life cycle where insects are important. We used something called a pooter. It is something where you suck up a bug through a straw and catch bugs but you can't accidentally suck it into your mouth.

At the end you can release your insect. 

Going to Arataki was very fun and I learnt lots about insects..

Have you ever seen a crab when you were at the beach? Well that means you have seen a crustacean! Crustaceans are crabs, lobsters, shrimp, sand hoppers, barnacles, crayfish and slaters.

Crustaceans are usually found in the ocean but some crustaceans live on land as well. The only crustaceans living on land is the slater, also known as a woodlouse.

All water crustaceans have a exoskeleton made of calcium. Their body is made up of an antenna, eyes, thorax, crusher claw, walking legs, head, swimmerets, flippers, tail and abdomen.

Crustaceans eat scraps and dead creatures, but slaters eat rotten wood.

My favourite crustaceans are hermit crabs because I think they are cute. Here is a diagram of one.

We need to look after crustaceans because they are a great food resources and they clean up our oceans. You can help by not using plastic and picking it up.

Letter to PM

Owairaka District School

Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern

Dear Mrs Ardern,

I am writing to you because I want to tell you about how amazing Garden to Table is at Owairaka school.

Owairaka School is an Enviro School and we believe that learning life skills alongside reading, writing and maths is very important. Room 8 (our class) is an awesome place to learn in and last term we had a Garden to Table session each week. It was a fantastic experience.

In the kitchen we cook food that is multicultural and the times that we do this are lunch, morning tea or in the last block. Some of the ingredients are from the school gardens. The honey is from our bees and our eggs are from the chickens. The names of the chickens are Dusty, Ginger Ninja, Betsy and Violet.

Each time we have Garden to Table it also teaches us other skills like reading in real life because we have to read the recipes correctly and math because we measure accurately in cups or spoons. But sometimes we make mistakes because once someone put salt instead of sugar in a muffin and made it taste really salty and one person cut their leg with a knife! They had to relearn how to use one safety and get a new knife licence (to be able to use a knife by yourself).
Some of the foods look really disgusting but they turn out to be delicious. Once, I tasted a really green lumpy smoothie that had green vegetables in it and we made a banana skin muffin. Using the banana skin taught us that you can have zero waste in the kitchen.            

I would like to invite you to come to our school and spend some time in our gardens and visit a Garden to Table lesson. You will get to try our delicious food and learn for yourself how awesome it is and know that all students should be able to experience this opportunity.

Yours sincerely,
Lillia, Room 8
