Snail & Whale In Taupo

Our class mascots the Snail and Whale arrived in Taupo yesterday. They are on the road again and having a ball! Check out the post they put on our snail and whale blog!

Hello out there, Snail and Whale have arrived safely at Broadlands School, Taupo, New Zealand. Snail and Whale have already been to the Kapa Haka festival that our school participated in. We are going on a field trip on the computer to the Cook Strait (the stretch of water separating the two islands in NZ) and Snail and Whale are coming to!

The trip on the computer to the Cook Strait will be happening at 1.30pm on Wednesday, the 20th of June 2012 on the LEARNZ website. It will be about the whales and it will be live and the will be trying to get some footage of the whales.

We are really excited to have Snail and Whale and are enjoying having them in Room5, Broadlands School.


In class we have been learning how to use I-movie. Check out this video that Georgia T made about the Cross Country. I think she did a great job!
