Room 2 butterfly hatching!

In Room 2 today we were lucky enough to see one of our butterfly cocoons hatch in a beautiful Monarch Butterfly! Miss Moore recorded this on timelapse so the video is moving faster than what it would in real life. The video is quite long so skip forward to 1:45, this is where the butterfly begins to hatch.

Looking for New Zealand insects has become a favourite activity for Ruma Rua students. Today Mr Rogers found us a New Zealand Native Huhu grub.

Researching using CHROMEBOOKS to investigate the habits of the Huhu grub. The students were fascinated to discover that the GRUBS are a delicacy.
