Mataura School

Well what a great trip we had to Andrew Calder's dairy farm. It was awesome! The kids were enthralled and asked so many cool questions. It was great to see how eco friendly Andrew's shed was, as our focus linked in with our term 1 topic of ecosystems and the kids loved the ways the farm was keeping the water as clean and clear as possible.. Next term our topic is "Don't forget your roots" which is finding out about where we live, what people do and then where are we in NZ and what else is around us. So considering we live in a rural service town, only one child out of 24 had been on a dairy farm before.
