The lifecycle of a Green Back Turtle

This week in Science, Chestnut class have been learning about the lifecycle of a sea turtle.

We started our new topic by learning about what a lifecycle is and how the differs in terms of how animals and plants reproduce, their offspring and how long they live for. 

The children enjoyed playing a board game about Green Back turtles. They  had to answer questions to move from the nesting beach, in which they were laid, and come face to face with potential hazards (environmental and predators) that could shorten their lifecycle. The aim of the game was to return to the beach to complete the cycle.

Our library visits

Our class will be visiting Carterton library once every three weeks on a Tuesday afternoon.

If you don't have a library card, you will need to collect and fill in a form at the library. They will register you and give you a card. (Your parents/carers need to be with you to sign the form).

I am looking for volunteers to walk the children to and from the library in the afternoons. Please let me know if you are interested. :-)

Chestnuts prayers for the week...

Trusting in you we join one another as a community. A community of strong faith and strong love on our journey through life. Give us courage to talk to each other and make us be calm, helpful and supportive of others.


We join one another's community on a journey in our faith and our love. Along the way help us to love and be strong for the journey ahead. Help us to be supportive and helpful and  make sure that our communities are at peace with one another.


Give me the confidence to do more things and step up in life and get better at things I find difficult. Help me focus more on my handwriting and work harder in Maths and English.
