This term HB Ruru are going to be learning about Farms. HB Ruru has showed an interest in animals and also machinery.

We will be learning about why we need farms and what products they produce. We will also be visiting a few different types of farms.

We will be following the storyline process where we create a model farm in our HB to show how our ideas are developing. We will also be including our storytelling process to write a story about a farm. During this we will start off telling and writing the story of "Mrs Wishy Washy's Farm" by Joy Cowley.
