Auckland Botanic Gardens Trip

Yesterday, Room 27 along with the rest of Year One was lucky enough to visit the beautiful Auckland Botanic Gardens. We learnt so much about plants and gardening.

First, we started by exploring the gardens! We saw some pretty cool things. We especially loved the lakes. 

We saw heaps of cool plants in the children's garden. 
It was extremely hot though! We found a fountain that helped cool us down!

Caroline, from the Gardens, taught us about the life cycle of a bean and everything it needed to grow big and strong!

We also got to have a close look at some worms! We really enjoyed it!

We were lucky enough to plant our own beans that we were allowed to take home and plant!

We learnt how to plant little baby radishes when they got too big for their pots! We will use this knowledge to plant our own bean plants when they start growing!

Caroline showed us what nutrients we needed to help our plants grow. 

After we had planted, we got to do some jobs like digging and sweeping. 

We had a great trip!!
